The Lad-About-Town, the Connoisseur, the Stud and the Pseudo-Intellectual are spreading “Young Man’s Disease” and Sonny’s caught it. Can Mommy save him?
Battling Young Man’s Disease is a 12-minute satirical comedy, edited for length and adapted for audio-only from my 25-min. film, Family Values in the Goddess Years.
Featured music: from Emmy-winning, Grammy-nominated composer Allan Phillips, jazz great Karl Denson, UK Sub’s Nick Garratt’s Ten Bright Spikes (from the fantastic Blueland album), and a bit from my brother Mark Lamson’s Afro-Cuban/Afro-Brazilian collaborative project: Bata Ketu.
Coming next week is the 11th and final episode: Garbage People - a hilarious 12 min. satirical comedy with a futuristic horror twist, written by Erin Austin. Hope you’ll enjoy.

I’ve been using TidyCal as an alternative to Calendly and I like it so much I signed up as an affiliate. Instead of an annual fee of $144+ if you integrate PayPal, Tidycal is available as a lifetime deal for $29. That’s one payment, not annually. You might be thinking, you get what you pay for, but I also find it more user-friendly than Calendly!
By the way, I’d love to catch up. To schedule a Zoom with me, here’s the Tidycal link.
