This Is Going Well, I Think is a show hosted by David Cooper. It is episode number and today's guests are Annie & Dan Linley. The couple announce they are getting married and the show kicks off, with Dan venting on and on about a band he had booked and they didn't show up. The first caller was a ask which is their favorite joke? They then go on to discuss Annie's Squirting. The next caller is from Indiana and there a bunch of gay jokes. English man Tony called and he is crazy and sort of funny. They then hear out a recorded message from Vik who is pissed out on David. And calls up and abuses David a lot. The show is weird and has lots of profanities and abuses. This is Karti from India rating this show 2 of 5.

Just the segway to the weekend I needed - the show about nothing is back! Chicken John is in the guest seat this week and our very own Colonel Sanders proves to be an opinionated man with the gift of the gab - starting with the upcoming California gubernatorial primaries and punctuated by side-boobs, we get a run down on the state of affairs, Qatar and even mundlebread! That was a good one, David! The first caller turns out to be a sport and lightens things a bit. The Chicken is so right about Trump supporters. Nixon and Universal Basic Income, really? - I learned something new today. The ever so sharp Miranda then calls in and I thought she had someone cling onto his plumes there for a few minutes; even gave me a goal for the rest of the month -brush my teeth with showmanship! One second thoughts, maybe not - it sounds too toothpaste heavy. Before we close for the week, Jamie Bond gets on the line after a night out from across the pond. Is that 138 miles or kilometers per hour?! Cos I thought they had real strict speed limits in England. Oh I forget, Bond makes his own rules after all. And you know what, I reckon you should have 'Tony time' towards the end of the show and close on a high note. That's me, Sam in the Far East rating this highly infotaining episode with 4.5 stars - that went pretty well, I think.

Hello David, it's long time to see you again. Hi Neptune, congratulation for your marriage. Well, This is a nice talk show, I always like this. In this talk show, David talks about starting to his guest "Neptune" about his marriage. Neptune Explain about his marriage that how to going all about this things. David talk from Neptune about his work. Sometimes he talks some funny thing like he asks Neptune about her sister like she is hot or not. Neptune shares some bad thing about his job. David also asks t Neptune about some adult thing. David shares such thing about Miranda and his love thing. This part of the show I really like. The first caller name I guess "tony" is looking very exciting. He talks very fast his voice not clear but I think he is really looking happy to talk with David. In the last part of the show there was alen, But I don't know about alen, why he was he there. So, this was a nice talk, I am sunil from India rating this talk show 4 star. Thank you.

Woo 72! - that's quite the journey right there! As this week's guest, David has the comedian Michael Makarov who is taking some time off after fixing an election or two. Michael reveals that he likes being at the Ritual. Miranda gets a call in quite early and the show suddenly comes alive - Face yoga, Cunnilingus advice, free bleeding tales and Raspberry Pis sets the stage for our caller from England - the man who tries his best to never make anyone uncomfortable - the man who usually has me going, WTF is he on?! After Tony hangs up, Makarov and David try to decide whose show it is! Oh boy! David Roth (of Courtyard by Marriott fame) is our next caller and three catch up on random goings on and Uncle Igor. Drama Queen Cooper then revisits his relationship with his older brother and for a few minutes, I thought we were in Dr. Phil territory. Before bringing the shutters down for the week, David talks about the two interesting shows he's lined up. And I agree, teenagers in groups can be tricky. That's me, Sam in the Far East rating this episode with 3.5 stars - that went bleed free, I think.

It's that time of the week again - time for that shitty show where no one's listening. Celeste (David's friend and former intern who moved to Oakland) is back in the guest seat. They get off the block by sharing notes about the legend of - who else other than Jamie/Borat Bond, our man from England with a villainous laugh. Celeste has been learning the ropes about being a comic with David buoying her on. We have the first caller for the evening and it's time for some (very toned down) Tony baloney - live streaming this week from close to the Wall the Mings put up. Wonder if they had any fake IDs back in the day, you know to get through the Wall - maybe not. The baloney aside, the thought of going to the Fringe in Edinburgh sounds brilliant. Celeste goes onto talk about her experience living away for the first time. And Miranda proves once again that she can hold the mirror up to David when it matters. After the Sh*tbag reveal, Miranda's sister calls in, followed by the other David a.k.a GroupChatter. Some straight talking and good banter ensues. Before closing, David reminds Celeste about the show he has in the works with Dan Linley and offers her a join in. That's me, Sam in Borneo rating this episode with 3.5ish stars - that went pretty abortion free, I think.

Episode 70 it is and a sleepy David goes through his intro drill and introduces this week's dog loving, truth speaking guest, Nick Katz. And this week's headline reads - is James Bond really loosing it? From what I hear, looks like he's decided to change his first name to Borat! Oh well! After sharing some interesting comic field notes, Nick and David get the first caller on the line - how else could it be other than Borat taking some trivia-time off between drinking alone in a bar, watching people use chopsticks and not sleeping much. And I had one of those bulb moments and got reminded of watching Steve Jobs introduce 'Podcasting' in 2005 - the man termed it as a concatenation of 'iPod' and 'Broadcasting' - you're right, David. Moving on, Nick reveals his Jewish credentials and a pretty elaborate one at that. An upbeat sounding Miranda then calls in (I think the 'Womanizer' is back in action!). Jokes aside, it's always nice to hear her. David then returns the call to someone who tried calling in and the two end up talking to an even keeled (or maybe up & down) Patrick from Texas. The super-texter/long term fan, Vic then calls into the show - he comes across as a you know, an even keeled person. He brings down the curtains for this week, just about. That's me, Sam from a cafe in the Far East rating this episode with 3 stars - that went pretty easy-peasy, I think.

The show about nothing does a 69! - Now that's something! Fellow comic Ray Connolly is back in the guest seat for the third time (really!?, maybe it's the coffee!). The two dive in talking about Ray's family situation and his staycation pursuits. Apparently the first time Ray came on the show was Episode 2, which sounds like a real pickle from the way David keeps talking about it. David runs Ray through the show's how-we-got-here story and the two go on to share some field notes from the comic circuit. And suddenly things light up(or not) - we have James Bond working the transatlantic lines again - giving English lessons and spilling his expertize on things Russian. Ray tries to hold it together, but you could tell that he wasn't too impressed with Bond. Our fact checker for the day (Miranda) calls in with, well - some facts. Hmm has the 'Womanizer' run out of batteries?! David tries his uncomfy-questions-list on Ray again, but he doesn't bite. The son of Cony has a show coming up next week and to the question whether he'll ever be back at the Ritual on a Thursday night - time will tell! . That's me, Sam from an Airbnb place in the Far East rating this episode with 2 stars - that could've been much worse, I think.

Another week and David is back at the coffee shop, this time with (just) Bronson - the lady who manages the place (or maybe not) as his guest. The (Born-Uncomfortable) David gets the show rolling by turning his charms on, but he seemed to overcook it to begin with. Turns out the articulate Bronson who likes to walk, moved to San Francisco about a decade ago. The two just about ease into their conversation, when we get the first caller - and who else could it be?! - the James Bond from England is back doing what he does best on early Friday mornings (his time) - dialling long distance while searching for his clothes! After Tony hangs up, Bronson opens up about her Dad who came across as a rather colorful person. David gives Bronson's stepmom a call - a trip down memory lane and some kerf(L)uffle later, Bronson's straight-shooter stepbrother also joins the conversation - yeaayhh! Miranda calls in and wonders whether Davids' been on Viagra?! - well, maybe that's an appropriate question for Tony - just thinking out loud! Streams, ADD, bleeps (more like, missing ones), Bronson's nerdy pursuits, and stemmy mushrooms keep things streaming. You know what, I think Bronson made a wonderful guest and her folks were great too. Good on you, David! Aside from the ritual lined up at the month end, Bronson has a show in May. That's me, Sam from an Airbnb place in the Far East rating this episode with 5 stars - that went great, I think.

You're right David - I really wonder how we got to Episode 67 with this shit show!? - but hey, here we are! A couple going by the moniker, Next & Donkey Show have the guest seat this week. David takes a shot at an intro before we get a Jewish caller on the line. Crosstalk, pubes, vagina fleshlight, suction pumps, cake-farts, crosstalk and some more crosstalk later, Tony comes to the rescue with his penis-puzzle! Oh boy, how does he come up with shite like that at 5:30 in the morning?!! After he hangs up on a cuppy-slappy note, Donkey proceeds to give us the load on her pubes, setting off a T-M-I alert in my head (too much information!) and drawing Miranda into the conversation. David then asks Donkey if they can call her Mom - she is reluctant but relents after David agrees to her condition. They are unable to get Mom on, but Donkey's Dad calls back and takes the show down the PG route for 15 minutes - to be honest, Dad sure came across as a charming and big-hearted fella! Before handing over their space to the cleaners, David Copper T.P says that his show at the Deli will be on in May. That's me, Sam from a backpacker's hostel in the Far East rating this episode with 3 stars - that had a slow start but came alive towards the end, I think.
Thursday, March 22 2018
Tracy Nguyen is back on the show for the third time - sober and steady. David kicks things off by addressing her bladder - don't think Tracy saw it coming but she dodges it well. Tracy feels she needs to be socializing more - well if you ask me, spending a Thursday evening on a show about nothing is a pretty decent start! Celeste calls in and Tracy shares some insight on Asian ways - which I thought was kinda true. David reveals his nurturing side and tries to help Celeste learn the ropes of becoming a comic. I then hear Kimchi being mentioned in a rather poopy circumstance, which wasn't exactly music to my ears cos I had one earlier and will be hitting the sack after this. Our new Womanizer fan then calls in and I don't know if it's her or some weird Womanizer side effect they didn't put on the box - she sounded slightly off it this week. The show then truly comes alive with a call from the middle of the Mediterranean - it's Jamie Bond masquerading as Johnny English - a.k.a Tony from London! Tracy tells David that he should consider having Tony on the show - that'll be some riot! Before the curtains go down, Tracy reveals that she has some shows coming up in April. That's me, Sam from a hostel not too far from the Vietnamese border (with Cambodia) rating this show with 3.5 stars - that went quite smooth and easy, I think.

The show about nothing rolls into town again - this time with Marcus Peverill in the guest seat. Marcus travelled south to be part be part of the show and our boy is turning 21 soon, having spent over a year trying to be a comedian while juggling two jobs. Celeste (David's Social Media Intern) happens to be friends with Marcus and she has a bunch of questions for him, which David tackles one by one. Among other things, Marcus reveals that he has no interest in putting it up Hitler's back burner. C*nts, an absent father, Dr. Pepper, Miranda's new German Womanizer and clits reveling under pleasured air just about kept me in my seat - until the phone rang. And guess who was back? - Who else could it be other than Tony?! He wasn't going to stay away for long, was he? After we learn about Tony's exploits in Athens, David tries to get Marcus to open up about his Dad followed briefly by some 'women-logic' from New Jersey. Miranda gets on the Find-Sanchez case and gets her browser fired up while David brings down the curtains for this week. As a closing note, Marcus plugs the shows he's got lined up for the next few weeks. That's me, Sam from a backpacker's den in the Far East rating this show with 3 stars or maybe 3.5! - that went alright, I think.

The comedian Dan Linley is the stand-in guest. The man wastes no time in getting things rolling by narrating the reason why he came in late - who would have guessed? - he got held up with some hazardous poopyactive waste that refused to slide! Just the kind of entree you need to sit back and enjoy the show. Dan is irked further when he is asked about his foot fungals. After David makes a rather pointed comment about his brother, Dan wonders why he always tries to rile people up. At this point, I'm thinking - where is Tony when you need him?! But it's Sam and Justin who call in, followed by fellow comedian David Roth. Porcupines, Dan-edonia and a phonetic lesson keep things moving. Dan suddenly blows his top after watching someone litter and he steps out to see if he can get a whiff of Mr. Inflamed Testicles. Dan then tries to establish his handwash/pee-streaming credentials. For all you know, with a bit of work he could have his own Netflix show! Or maybe not - the man is too caught up trying to establish that he is not a misogynist. Dan mentions that he has some shows lined up and the two sign off to a Stones track. That's me, Sam from Singapore rating this episode with 4 stars! And if I'm ever at the Courtyard by Marriott, I'll have something to smile about - that went kinda well, I think.

The show may be a crap or disgusting to others view. But from my side, it is a nice show with a different idea that a radio show with conversation without topics. David Cooper's chat was so funny with some bad words, but that's not seen as a big issue in this episode. It was great when he mostly accepted to improve the episode which was requested by Indians fan Banu and Svatish. Not only from them, from my side also i request you to run this show with a reasonable topic. As the show has international following, the topic may also bring any changes. But David Cooper is really a great man who publicly read out the comments given by the followers though it has bad reviews. Overall the show was good to hear and it was a funny 2 hours spent in my life listening to a topic less speech. Miranda girlfriend of david is nice to listen. Anoop from India rate this episode 3.5 stars. That was well I think.

David has the comedian Justin Lockwood on, as his guest. Not even 10 minutes into the show, guess who's back on air? - it's a Tony coup d'etat all over again - nearly! He reveals that he got to meet up with David's social media intern Celeste and his girlfriend Miranda, while in San Francisco. I breathed a sigh of relief when our man was off after giving us some ginger insights. David gets Miranda to call in and we get the load on David's bottom burps, among other things. David admits to Justin that he wasn't a huge fan of him earlier and the two talk things out. David narrates how a fellow comedian helped him name the show and two take a trip down memory lane. It was interesting listening to a comedian's take on how a comedian ought to be and the interplay between being a designer and an artist. Justin reveals that his favourite comedian growing up was Richard Lewis. On a closing note, David discloses that he's going to be co-hosting a new radio show with a real interesting setting. The episode closes before Tony can come around for another ambush. That's me, Sam from Singapore rating this train wreck (David's words, not mine) with 5 stars - that went really well, I think.

David hosts Oli who is visiting from Scotland. David and Oli first met online while playing the role-playing game called Ultima Online. David mentions that he had a rough upbringing in Toronto, Canada and he took to Lego at a very early age. A caller then dials in from a few blocks away - the man happens to work for Mozilla (of Firefox fame). The next caller Tony (visiting from the UK) was hilarious but he probably maxed out his cards paying for roaming. I was glad when he finally got off - the show was going a bit sideways at that point. David struck an apologetic tone with Oli for his teeny gaming persona but Oli was pretty sporty about it. And Tony pops up again - does that bloke ever give up? Christian (from the gaming days), whom David tried to call earlier in the show, leaves a text but he's unable to get past his voicemail. And guess what? - think I'll step out for a pizza too. Or maybe a table-shower first. That's me, Sam from Singapore rating this episode with 4 stars - that went quite well, I think. But we know that listening could be a waste of time.
