Ep. 91: Pro Wrestling, a Doggie Friend and Captain America

This week's episode of The Chauncey DeVega Show features two great guests and friends of the podcast. 

Psychiatrist David Reiss returns to the show and shares his insights and thoughts about the deaths of music legend Prince and professional wrestling trailblazer Chyna and how they are victims of America's epidemic of prescription painkiller abuse. Dr. Reiss also shares his experience and wisdom about the challenges of pain management, detoxing, and recovery. Of course, David and Chauncey have to talk some professional wrestling and how Roman Reign's "flack jacket" is symbolic of how he is "protected" by the WWE and is subsequently hurting his ability to get over with the audience. Dr. Reiss also shares his thoughts about the documentary, The Resurrection of Jake the Snake Roberts.

Bill the Lizard is the second guest on this week's installment of The Chauncey DeVega Show. Bill the Lizard stops by the virtual bar and salon to offer his critical assessment of the new movie Captain America: Civil War. Bill also has some ideas on where the films need to go in the future and offers a very sharp and insightful observation about the relationship between Tony Stark, Steve Rogers, and the Winter Soldier. Plus, Bill the Lizard suspects that we most certainly have not seen the last of HYDRA in the Marvel Universe.

During this week's show, Chauncey begins by offering up a dedication and remembrance for one of his doggie friends who was tragically killed last week by a reckless driver. Chauncey also talks about being invited to a "summit" at the White House and if he should go, as well as his recent guest spots on the RT Network and Free Speech TV. 

To close out this week's show, Chauncey offers up some thoughts on the Republican Party's sick toilet obsessions and sex deviants who hide in toilets and sewers to look up women's dresses.
