In writing Dudes, scriptwriter Randall Jahnson was partly inspired by visits to Old West locations which he felt were "frozen in time". In the early and mid-1980s, he later reflected, the punk and art rock scenes in Los Angeles were demonstrating a certain fascination with the West, exemplified by Wall of Voodoo performing cover versions of Spaghetti Western songs, the Dead Kennedys covering "Rawhide", and the Meat Puppets mixing punk with country music, which influenced his crossing of the two genres in his script. He settled on the film's title based on the Old West use of the term "dude" to describe a "tenderfoot" or "fish out of water", city-dwelling Easterners unprepared for life on the frontier, seeing his main characters as modern "dudes".

Abbott and Costello, Farley and Spade, Christmas and Dunne, and now... Bryant and Baumstark. I'm still trying to figure out who's the straight man.Whether it's a crazy taxi driver or feral in their kitchen, these two dudes make learning about the disabled community fun. They navigate some pretty serious subjects while breaking it up with stories and their quirky sense of humor.The large variety of guests keeps me coming back for more. Looking forward to the next one!
Really great insight to living with a disability and how to push beyond. Fun and effortless conversation. Funny and charasmatic dudes. A postive and encouraging podcast for all. Keep up the great work!
I love this podcast! I really appreciate the honest, open sharing that is peppered with laughter & good information about navigating the world for those with (and without) disabilities. The Welcome episode really sets the stage for what Kyle & Sean are facing with FA and it also reveals a friendship that is fun to listen in on. I've listened to the next 3 episodes so far & enjoyed them all - it's helping me with how I view myself and others in the world. We all face challenges and struggles. The hosts encourage us all to live better in each moment, yet apply compassion when we each may stumble. This podcast is a bright spot and motivation to "live with urgency" as a Kyle & Sean do. Thanks dudes!
Meet Kyle and Sean, two dudes who suffer from Friedreich's Ataxia (FA). Unfamiliar with FA? Doesn't matter. Give 'em a listen. You won't find two more genuine and likeable guys out there. Amongst their friendly banter and casual conversation, you'll find insight, inspiration, and encouragement... all this and more from a couple of guys who don't let their disability define what they can and cannot do.
Gives some much-needed brevity to the lives of people with disabilities. Doesn't try to be showboating or sugary inspirational. Just genuine. 2 dudes talking over Skype about their lives, which tends to be affected by a rare disorder they share, Friedreich's ataxia. Poignant. Can't wait for more episodes. 041b061a72
