The Intellexual

Home The Intellexual
The Intellexual is hosted by David S. Dawson, with occasional hosts Steven Schwartz and Jesse Kozak. It's an open discussion podcast that covers whatever topic is of interest to the hosts. Discussions will be free flowing, lively and entertaining.

Waxing poetic…

Many of my female friends have told me...come to think of it all my male friends as well, that I have the ugliest back and shoulder hair on the planet. I never gave it much thought. Yeah, it's unsightly, but I can't reach my back and I didn't want to go through the pain and cost of having it done. Fast forward to yesterday.

Kalibo – Halfway Point of Journey

Driving through the province hasn't been all that different from driving through the urban areas of Manila. Everywhere you go the suffering of people who survive on next to nothing is very apparent. The shanty towns of Manila give way to the shanties in the fields. But the living conditions are the the same... appalling.

Eddy Salazar

Writer/Actor Eddy Salazar joins the podcast! Eddy talks about his real world nightmare that turned into the script for The Insomniac, a thriller/horror film about home invasions and the psychological impact they have on people.

Bizarre Foods

The IntelleXual on the Road is in the Philippines! David and Steve are on the journey of a lifetime as David visits his family in the Philippines for the first time in 30 years and Steve takes his first ever trip outside of the confines of the continental US. In this episode the boys try a bunch of Filipino foods they wouldn't have tried at home!

40th Anniversary – Paco Park, Philippines

For my mom, Paco Park was truly an oasis within the city. A place of refuge. Her happy place. Within the walls, amongst the funeral niches of fallen Filipino heroes, she found hope and comfort. It is no wonder that when she was facing the choice of where to get married she chose Paco Park.

Alex Merkin

Carlota’s 59th Birthday in the Philippines

David celebrated his Mother's 59th birthday in the Philippines with her.

Balut, Sweat and Tears!

So far 2014 has become the year of firsts for me. First time getting a passport. First time traveling outside the country. First time going through customs, the first time setting foot on foreign soil, first time getting a mani-pedi, (clear polish if you were going to ask) And, first time eating balut.

Bakit Why? Balut?

David and Steve are truly global podcasters now. Their premiere episode of The IntelleXual On The Road has them discussing flying on the Hello Kitty plane, their first day in the Philippines and Steve's adventuresome spirit leading him to downing a balut. It's a very yummy podcast from the other side of the Pacific!

EVA Flight 01 – LAX to TPE

We weren't sure what we were getting when we purchased the tickets on EVA Air. What we've found is my favorite airline. It's a good start to the journey!

24 Hours to Go…

In my 48 years I have traveled to different parts of the United States. Most recently, to Florida for a wedding of two friends from high school. A first for me. I had never been to Florida, but I have never left the country nor have I ever needed to get a passport. Another first.

Island Time

I'm going with my Mom and with one of my closest friends and co-host of my podcasts Steve Schwartz. He's nearly 50 years old and has never been outside of the U.S. for anything. Between my Mom being unpredictable because of her battle with liver cirrhosis and Steve's inexperience in traveling internationally this is going to be one interesting trip.
