#92 Angry Atheist turned Psychedelic Comedian & Jiu Jitsu Expert: Jamie Kilstein

Having an incredibly original voice as a leftist comedian, our guest: Jamie Kilstein, has spearheaded a subculture of comedy fans and socially aware youth and has primed himself to become the voice of a generation. He’s crafted a beat poetry inspired performance style laced with socio/political activism, and riddled with progressive politics and the chaos of contemporary culture. Additionally, he’s a Marcelo Garcia trained Jiu Jitsu brown belt and Muay Thai fighter! 

In this episode we discuss the notorious roller coaster of emotions many comedians experience throughout their careers. Jamie dives deep into his own struggle with depression and how both jiu jitsu and comedy quite literally saved his life. Plus, we explore his journey from being an atheist to becoming spiritually curious.
