JF Harris
JF Harris has his meditation on lock. We met at a comedy club and have always had perfect and deep conversations until one night, in passing, I didn't recognize him. When I made an awkward amends for being rude, he invited me over to record this podcast. One of those God moments I guess! Find him at @jfharris_Comedy on twitter.
