Art declares a college degree worthless after having to pay $4 to park at his alma mater, when as an alumni, he's sure it should be free.

Guest is quickly rising Atlanta comedian Dulcé Sloan. Sloan and Art discuss Sloan's rapid rise in the burgeoning Atlanta comedy scene, whether or not there is such a thing as "talking black," and opening for big-name comedians like Greg Proops and Bobcat Goldthwait. 65 minutes. NOTE: Explicit language.

Art's comments: "Dulcé impressed me with her strong stage presence and confidence when I saw her open for Bobcat Goldthwait in January. The sputtering and stammering I do during the interview drives me insane, but oh, well, in spite of me, this may still be a 'keeper' as one of Dulcé's first interviews ever, after she gets her hit sitcom."

Art talks about re-Tweets (or as he likes to call them, "Twitter endorsements") he's gotten from Washington, D.C. power players. Yes!

The guest is Dan Campbell, a progressive rock/country violinist who has traveled the world with country recording artist Buddy Jewell, among others. He talks about his journey from playing frat parties in Alabama with his jam/prog band, Iratowns, to performing in Italy, China and Iraq as a country music pro. The Iratowns song "Green Man" from their 1998 CD A Series of Clicks and Whistles is included. 40 minutes.

Art's comments: "I hope people will realize that if my Tweets are good enough for Paul Begala, they should be more than good enough for them. As for Dan, what can you say? He makes the magic happen!"
