Well, the weekend is here and more than anything, Cooper's radio show is something that helps me unplug. We have two tattoo-free guests at the Ritual for the 94th - David's mom Clara and funnyman, 212-pounder Paul Conyers! After attending to an early caller through the glass, the three settle in to get things rolling. Well, what do you know - it's truly a family show this week and Sr. is right - even a Jesus can't get through the Mexican border right now, let alone applying for asylum on the second coming. And if you ask me - we sure could do with a lot more loosey-goosey hippie rabbis, especially in the Middle of East or the Middle of West rather, looking from my side. You know what, I'm not sure if I've heard a more articulate funnyman on the show before, not to mention the spot-on German accent - he had me cracking up all the while. The lill' trip down comic-memory lane was pretty insightful too. Before bringing the curtains down, both David and Paul make a quick plug for the shows they have lined up - sounds like fun. That's me, Sam from the Far East rating this episode with nearly 4 stars - I've got enough to publish a paper on bum-wipes now, I think.

Cooper is back at 1026 Valencia and the train wreck rolls on - to episode 93 this week (Wow!), with the versatile and multitalented Clara Bodacious in the guest seat. The show gets off the ground with quite a few callers from the other side of the glass. Clara's friend and fellow performer, Barbie then rings in and an interesting conversation ensues. Vampire fetish, period-sex towels, and hemorrhoids - can't say I've heard all three in one sentence before. Clara brings up something I hear all too often these days - how much it bothers parents to bring up children in the era of technology. And before long we're on communes and goat farming - boy we're running the whole gamut here! The outside phone line sees from frantic activity towards the very gay end of the episode, with our very own Banksy reveal - that was a good one, Clara! And just when the thought crossed my mind that Bond may have fumbled his Daylight Savings clock - I hear that all too familiar laugh. Boy does he work on his props or what?! - sounds like Mr. T has got a drop though. We sure have a transatlantic meeting to look forward to later this month. That's me, Sam from the Far East rating this episode with 4 stars! - that was more blood & hemorrhoids than I could take for an evening - but sill fun, I think.

Time again for that show about nothing - Pamela, who doesn't really hold back on her farts, is David's guest for the week. Things get moving with Cooper unpacking a rape joke, which made me cringe slightly. When it comes to things like having a gift of the gab, our guest proves to be more than a match for David. A few interesting callers from across the glass divide and Miranda's call line the first hour - I'll probably see pink salmons in a whole new light from this day forth. But 'Adolf Gasser' has to take the weird snippet award for the week. David's childhood friend Jacob calls in and spills some of their peccadillos, which set things up nicely. Our man from across the pond then calls in and the show kinda enters a whole new level of reality. It was hilarious and painful at the same time. Oh yeah, talk of the Atlantic Ocean being a cock-blocker! - Well, maybe not for our drone man - but that's a good one Pamela! Oh Jenny, my Jenny! - full marks to her for being a sport. Oh boy, that was a cracker of a closing from Pamela! That's me, Sam from the Far East rating this episode with 5 stars - that sure went off the rails in the end but in a good way, I think.

Episode 91 of "This Is Going Well, I Think with David Cooper" and today's guest on the show is Trish Pandya who had bailed out the last time. And the second guest is a Watson. They are on the show for a date, cant think of a worst place for a date, but hey who am i to judge. The show has a boring start. The first caller is Gay Gallow, who goes on to talk about his date/break up. They all go on to discuss polyamory relations. Then next boring discussion is on Martinis. The discussion was so boring, Gallow hung up without saying good bye. Finally another caller Miranda, who had to hold on till they dispensed off with Rommey. The next call is from a person who is confused about the show. This the most boring episode in recent times. Get some better guests, David. This is Karti from India rating the Episode 91 with 1 star.

It sure feels like ages - am I glad to be listening to Cooper again or what!? Sounds like the show has even moved up the ladder with a new station picking up the feed - way to go! David gets things rolling with his usual drill and introduces his guest Tracy Nguyen. However, the episode gets off the blocks with a whimper. Tracy brings up something that I've often wondered too - why does David get worked up when someone refers to the show as a podcast?! Miranda then makes an early call in and the three get chatting. But it doesn't take long before our leading man from across the pond calls in. Between tinder swipes, ass wipes, getting rimmed, boob squeezes and being on call to Her Majesty's Drone service, our man in London still makes his Friday morning dates. That's commitment! Tony comes to Cooper's rescue when he needs him the most - kinda like a laxative for the show (although Tony might argue it's the other way around!). After Tony hangs up, Cooper and Tracy strive to salvage the rest of the episode. Cooper goes on to play a hilarious clip from Burning Man. The curtains come down for the week with a karaoke duet which to be honest, cracked me up. That's me, Sam from the Far East rating this sing-along episode with 4 stars - that turned out well in the end, I think.

Episode 89 (not 69) of "This Is Going Well, I Think with David Cooper" and today's guest on the show is Dan Linley after Trish Pandey rescheduled to sometime in November. Quite early in the show there is a call who hangs up. Dan has a list of things to be discussed on the show. They go on to discuss Davids butthole, not the best part of the show. The first call on the show is from Clint, who works for San Francisco parks alliance, a non-profit. and they discuss a bunch of parks. The next caller is Vic. They go on crack jokes on the Jews. They have a long Q&A. Then Dan has a verbal diarrhea on the Kardashians, who he hates to the core. The next caller is the show regular, Tony. Tony has testy relation with Dan. Then we get a dose of typical Tony humor, but its quite subdued. The last caller is another regular Miranda, who has fought with her. One of the boring David Cooper shows in recent times. This is Karti from India rating the show a 1 out of 5.

Episode eighty eight of the show and today's guest on the show is a repeat from the last year Alexandria Love. They kick off the discussing Bitcoins later it gets a bit emotional when David mentions his ex-girlfriend. Its one of David's least swearing show, well atleast for first thirty minutes. Then they go on to discuss some TV shows. The second caller is Ray Connelly, who is a fellow comedian and had visited Alex's show last night. The next caller is Tony, a regular on the show and brings in a whole lot of shit. Blurts out a lot of profanities and racial comments. They go on to discuss some serious stuff. The next caller is Miranda, a weekly here. And some more discussions. This episode has lesser profanities, racial comments. This is Karti here from India (still waiting to hear back from you) rating episode eighty eight a Four out of Five. [Editor's Note: we'll call Karti at a later date.]

This is the 87th episode of the show called "This Is Going Well, I Think with David Cooper" and today's guest on the show is is Munette, Anally. [Editor's Note: a pseudonym] Munette is podcast host herself and also does editing for it. She is self-proclaimed smelly person and baths only 4 times a week which is more than David. They go on to discuss an episode which they had shot together and David uploads its only for her mom to find it. There the show kicks off its dick, masturbate jokes. The part where they rename Munette as Ma-anally was hilarious. The first guest is the old time favorite Miranda. They all go on to discuss their porno likes and dislikes. The next caller is the crazy guy Tony, another regular. And the show goes to another level. I am beginning to like the show, its wicked vulgar sense of humor is fun and quite enjoyable. This was one of the better shows after a couple of previous shows. Thanks for taking my name in show, i would love to call the show. This is Karthi from India rating this episode o 3 out of 5, thanks for the entertainment.

Today's guest on the show is called "This Is Going Well, I Think with David Cooper" is Rachel Raphael. It is episode 86. They go on discuss their friend Marty, Then they discuss Rachel's life, her earlier life and all. They both discuss their Jewish school experience. Lots of sex. The first caller is Miranda, a regular on the show. They together go on to discuss Rachael's cancer and she overcoming it. The next caller is Tony, yet another regular and brings in a bunch of profanities. The show picks some pace after Tony's entrance into the show. Not the best David Cooper show, but still okay and good. This is Karthi from India rating this show with 2 stars.

This is the show is called "This Is Going Well, I Think with David Cooper" and today is the episode. Today's guest on the show is Erica Johnston, a longtime friend of David. [Editor's Note: David and Erica barely know each other.] The initial part of the part is boring specifically about the cult that Erica has joined. The first call is Ezra, a regular on the show. He has a beautiful voice. It has all the typical jokes with whole loads of cuss words like penis, gay jokes. Can be disgusting. Then Tony, another regular on the show, calls up. The discussion of the stripper show was quite good. The next caller is Miranda, yet another show regular. Erica's answer on her early marriage was heartfelt and felt genuine. This is Karti from India rating this episode a 3 out of 5. Never a good show, always okay. Cheers bye!

David takes the show to the East Coast this week - to the Hamptons where his brother Jon is having a gay bachelor party with some of his mates. The show is almost a non-starter with Jon's mates who promised to help, washing their hands off at the 11th hour. But David persists, and persist he does - albeit with the help of Miranda and Tony - Jon chips in as well. You know, with the kind of upbeat radio persona Tony puts on week after week, you sometimes tend to take it for granted that he may be the same in real life too. It was refreshing to hear him open up and take us for a peek behind the curtains - only to be derailed by McNuggets! - yes Tony, only on the David Cooper show indeed! Well, Tony manages to get himself invited for Jon's wedding later in the summer, and I have a feeling he's going to make it. If he does, it sure is gonna be a riot! Sounds like we have a few interesting weeks lined up. David gives next week's episode a heads up before deciding to give the nuggets his undivided attention. Nuggets on alcohol?! - that could be a wind-breaker isn't it? I hope not. That's me, Sam from the Far East rating this episode with well, no stars (to borrow from Tony - we're not in a competition, are we?). That was a decent listen, I think.

Oh yeah, the Cooper train wreck is back with another episode - the redhead going blonde, Sara DeForest is this week's guest. The two get the show going by striking up some banter before David reveals that his ex is having a child - listening to him talk about it, you kinda get the feeling that it's been on his mind a lot - or maybe not. Wrong Sara to the wrong Gabe! - insane indeed. Wonder what the odds on something like that would be!? Talking about odds and sanity, you don't have to go far to find someone who pushes both - it's our Bond from across the pond! Apparently Tony has been going around trying to get random people to wear David's cutout face masks - a topless woman with Cooper's face sounds hilarious - looks like Tony has his work cut out. On second thoughts, he might pull it off while he's out walking his dog - I wouldn't be surprised. After Tony hangs up, a couple of persistent teenagers ring in from the street and throws Cooper off, slightly. It's Sara's turn when he hears David's views Ali Wong's comedy. I reckon Cooper was on to something when he talks about one's choice to get offended. A drowsy sounding Miranda calls in before the curtains go down for the week. Always something, indeed! That's me, Sam from the Far East rating this episode with 4ish stars - that went alright, I think.

Today is episode number eighty two of the show called "This Is Going Well, I Think with David Cooper". And today's guest is Sticky Buns. They go on to remember their summer camp and his horrible experiences in it. THey speak of masturbation. Then later their college days. later Tracy calls on the show, whose boyfriend is busy with something else. There was an emotional moment as the host and guest fought over some unresolved issues from their past. Tracy is a regular caller, and hangs up. The next caller is Tony who loves Sticky's accent. He is also a regular caller. They go on to discuss Tony. as expected from a David Cooper show there are lots of cuss words like fuck, suck dick, gay jokes. This is one of the boring episodes of this show, with no proper jokes. This is one of the most boring episodes of this show, with no proper jokes. Karthi from India rating this show a -5 stars.

That time of the week again - an upbeat sounding David introduces his hinged guests, Marty & Michelle who sound like a real fun couple. The first caller, musically inclined Momo sets things up for a cracker of an episode. Yeah, no din-din cos he's on Android - way to go Michelle! And thanks to Momo, now I know what the track which won't be getting the next Grammy is called - Don't gimme rabies! VCR Head Cleaner, really?! - man, that just gave some of my childhood memories a whole new tinge - thanks David! And guess who's back on the transatlantic line!? - The one and only Tony! Boy did we miss him or what? And what a comeback story! The last time I was at a farmhouse I just saw sheep, dang! You know, I still can't figure out why Tony goes off the rails each time David has a go at his physical appearance - he can do better! Our guests get some game talk going and Miranda rings in just as things were warming up. But boy did she have me cracking me up today - there was a Mohammed in there as well! - talking about classic liners, that one's up there! And what a nice thought to finish the episode, Michelle. My cheekbones are aching from all the laughing. That's me, Sam from the Far East rating this episode with every star I can think of - it'll be hard to better this one, I think.

Made it indeed! - a hung-over David is back at the Ritual for #80, with Annie and Dan Linley returning as guests. The trio gets the bantering going on a laid-back note. David brings up the recent outing of Shitbag and Dan is not happy with how the show went. An apologetic David floats the idea that he could take a step back and have someone else fill in. From what I can make out, the show is still in it's infancy and it's probably a good time to try if something new works. Annie's plug for her new show, 'Bottomless Standards' is interrupted by the evening's first caller- Womanizer's greatest fan! Talk about silken ocean waves and minute long crests - you know, I was thinking - maybe the Germans could use that line for one of their ads, but good luck matching Miranda's conviction. Tina, the next caller may have tripped on some outcropping and hung up. And yeah, think I was a bit Arachnophobic too but I've gotten over it over the years - trekking in a rainforest sure helps! Vic rings in and takes things on a different tangential. For a second there, I wasn't sure whether to feel happy or sad for our Obama fan. That aside, it sounds like Dan has some interesting shows in the pipeline. That's me, Sam from the Far East rating this rather drivel of an episode with 2 stars - that could've been better, I think.
