725- I Finally Told Off My Stepfather with Comedian Gianmarco Soresi

Comedian Gianmarco Soresi (Comedy Central, The Downside podcast) likes to say that when your parents get divorced there's always one parent who's a little bit stricter and then there's the dad. That might be because his mom married his dad's former lawyer, an Ohio-born Putin look-a-like with a penchant for punishment. Not one for confrontation, Gianmarco avoided standing up to his step father until his authoritarian ways went a bridge too far.
