MIKE EDISON is the former editor and publisher of High Times magazine. His books include the celebrated memoir I Have Fun Everywhere I Go, the sprawling social history of sex on the newsstand, Dirty! Dirty! Dirty! and the deliciously filthy political satire Bye, Bye, Miss American Pie. More recently he collaborated with Joe Bastianich on his New York Times bestselling memoir, Restaurant Man. Edison is also a noted musician and storyteller and a professional wrestler of no small repute.
Since the Mid-’70s PETER ZAREMBA has fronted the New York City Garage Rock legends, the Fleshtones. He’s also been an MTV host and a food & travel columnist for the New York Daily News and Time Out New York. He is a celebrated bon vivant, and truly a man for all seasons. When not showing off his Sputnik-era humor on Arts & Seizures he can be heard on his own kooky late night show on Sirius XM.
