EPISODE 055: A Star Wars Outta Body Experience: Silas Lindenstein

O55_Silas_Lindenstein_Losing_Our_Religion.jpg

This episode, we begin by talking about Star Wars as a Religion, and we end by talking about Out of Body experiences and seeing an Angel! 

Silas and I met through Facebook.  He and I both drive for Uber/Lyft on the side to make some extra cash and a local Facebook group for "drivers" introduced us.

When asked what we all do for a living I mentioned the podcast, and Silas jumped at the opportunity to introduce himself and ask about being on the show, stating that we could talk about "Star Wars Religion."

The Silas story goes much deeper than that, and I am happy to introduce you to such a funny guy, with some amazing life stories.


WHO IS SILAS LINDENSTEIN?

Silas Lindenstein is the mocha almond fudge of stand-up comedy; not very dark, but not very light, bringing balance to the force of comedy. Sweet, yet savory, and just the perfect amount of nuttiness. With his sharp wit and confusing ethnicity, he examines his life as a father, husband and wannabe starship captain.
