Hello, my name is Antonio Barbosa and I am the host and creator of The Smoking Simian. In a world of cynicism (being the biggest cynic alive), the idea of this podcast is to give insight into the lives of people that you may never have known. Episodes will consist of controversial opinions, funny anecdotes and incredible personalities. Sit back, light up a smoke and enjoy.- Follow me on Instagram - https://www.instagram.com/abarbosa000/- Follow me on Twitter - https://twitter.com/TheSimian_- ...

Supposedly the U.S. is on track to run out of money (cash) this month and could default on its debts. Something that has never happened in the history of the country. My question is: did they ever have any cash in the first place? Enjoy you animals and force your friend to as well. - Follow me on Instagram - https://www.instagram.com/abarbosa000/ -…

Always great to catch up with someone you haven't spoken to in a while. Mo is definitely a vibrant and passionate guy, who firmly believes what he says. I knew that, but now so do you guys. Also you may notice the audio is a little weird, I don't care and you shouldn't either. The conversation was great, enjoy you beasts of the new world. - Follow …
 
I try to take as much as I can from every experience, regardless of how good or bad it was. This past weekend I got sick out of nowhere and it really put a damper on my weekend. No I don't think it was COVID in fact, it may have been a delayed side effect from the second dose of the vaccine I received. Anyway, I barely get sick and for whatever rea…
 
We are constantly bombarded with so much information that it can be difficult to define what is true. Speaking with healthcare professional and professor at Johnson and Wales University, Ashley Hughes, really helped clear up some of my Coronavirus questions and skepticisms. This is one of those episodes that anybody can benefit from, especially in …
 
I've been reading a lot of Albert Camus lately, mainly because of how fascinating his philosophy is. The idea of what man goes through when faced with the absurd nature of this life. Needless to say, it has been making an impression on me so listen! - Follow me on Instagram - https://www.instagram.com/abarbosa000/ - Follow me on Twitter - https://t…

For those of you who watch the show on YouTube, you will notice that there is no video for the beginning of this episode. That is because I am a neglectful podcast host who frequently forgets to press record. Anyway, enjoy this conversation between me and the Portuguese Powerhouse, Evan Oliveira. - Follow me on Instagram - https://www.instagram.com…
 
I understand we're all humans and we're all sensitive to some things. However, if you're thin-skinned maaaaaybe stay out of the public eye. You think Richard Pryor, Marylin Monroe or Harriet Tubman felt that they needed to be sheltered by what others say about them? Stop the whining and assume the position! - Follow me on Instagram - https://www.in…

He broke away from his environment and notorious (where we come from) last name, becoming a pro boxer and making a life for himself. Now, he runs Legendary Boxing Gym in North Providence, RI and continues to support his community. Big thanks to…
 
Sometimes, it takes tough situations to realize you have to make something happen. Whether or not you want to. Part of that realization is understanding when action needs to be taken. That all sounds pretty cool, yeah? - Follow me on Instagram - https://www.instagram.com/abarbosa000/ - Follow me on Twitter - https://twitter.com/TheSimian_ - Share, …
 
Christian Gonzales is a professor at URI and specializes in Native American and Indigenous People's History. He recently published a book titled: Native American Roots: Relationality and Indigenous Regeneration Under Empire, 1770-1859.

Brian a.k.a Mr. Magoo is preparing to do battle for the first time in over a year. He will be competing Friday August 27, at the House Of Blues in Boston for Lion Fight.

"Don't Try" a quote written on the great Charles Bukowski's gravestone. One that sounds awfully negative but intends to be the exact opposite. Often times, we find ourselves "trying" and not doing. We are at our best when we do, when the word try is not part of our vocabulary. Trying is a great safety net for us, when we don't succeed we can say "I…

Also, he was the head coach for…
 
Boring people are the worst. I've always liked the villain in movies because you would have to be an interesting person to take the perspective of the hero's enemy. I talk about some other stuff in here too so don't just read those two sentences and scurry off. - Follow me on Instagram - https://www.instagram.com/abarbosa000/ - Follow me on Twitter…
 
I've been meaning to get these two together for the show for some time now. James and John have both been on a few times but to have them together was a great experiment. This episode has quite the array of topics, some of which I have little to no knowledge about. Either way I think it's one that you all will enjoy. - Follow me on Instagram - http…
 
This past weekend, we watched one of the most polarizing figures in all of sports today take a big loss. Conor McGregor made his long awaited return to the octagon and came up short in disappointing fashion. There is something to be taken away from all our experiences and observations and this weekend showed that. Many of us look passed out goals o…
 
Sometimes, there is value in getting a point of view from someone who has a decades of experience. Other times, there is much to learn from an intermediate perspective, especially if you're attempting a similar feat. Sarry is a young entrepreneur and financial planner with a wealth of passion and knowledge. He owns his own financial planning compan…
 
A guest on a Monday?! That's right people and not any guest but the colossal Kevin Yepes. Some may remember him from our Christmas Eve and Halloween specials. Unfortunately both of those got removed due to copyright issues, damn Kanye songs. Anyway, enjoy this nice surprise on a Monday morning. It's probably the only one you'll get. - Follow me on …
 
Big thanks to the hilarious comedian/photographer/badass Brieana Woodward for coming on the show. I love meeting new people who have some sort of an edge to them and she definitely does. Make sure you check out her YouTube channel and Instagram: notadamncheese (don't call her brie) for a diverse array of content. - Follow me on Instagram - https://…
 
"Hard times is when a man has worked a job 30 years; they give em watch, kick em in the butt and say 'hey daddy, a computer took yo place daddy''. That's hard times." None of that happened to me but I can see why Dusty Rhodes went off the way he did. Listen here for my take on John McAfee (a man who saw some hard times), taking some college classes…
 
I'd rather be a warrior in a garden than a gardener in a war. Mind this war was not started by me and I had no idea that I would be dragged into one. My bum ass neighbor complains about some bull almost everyday so now he will be the butt of my unrelenting jokes. Other than that everything is groovy, including my existential crises. Enjoy my authen…
 
WARNING!! This episode is not for the faint of heart, just how I like it. My idea for this episode was mayhem and that's what we got. Big thanks to Chris Oldrid, Evan Oliveira, Johnny 'Noli' Mann and Chris and Nick Sanberg for coming on and having a good time. This was meant to be just an old school hang out session, cracking jokes, dropping names …
 
WELL SHIT, we got us an episode on a Thursday. Yes it's late and yes I didn't have anything planned but I had to make something happen! Could not let it rest. When I get to thinking about giving up or getting a job in sales or some other outcome that I would equate to misery, I have to make a move. So here is me as honest and real as can be. Please…
 
In an ever exciting verbal onslaught, I speak about my observance of the subtle nuances of everyday life. Some hilarious, some strange and some just plain upsetting.

It's not everyday I get to speak with the caliber of expert like my guest today, Ed Martin. Mr. Martin is a long time business professional who has done just about all you can do in that world. He's owned multiple different businesses from financial services, too retail, to restaurants. Not to mention his commitment to lifelong learning. He is a be…
 
Good morning all, please listen to me complain about my birthday and other various things, Hopefully you relate, find some comedic value or don't like it at all. If you're in the first two groups make sure you tell everyone some guy is screaming obscenities into a microphone in his house alone and that they should listen. - Follow me on Instagram -…
 
This one was just a fun ass podcast to record. I hope you guys enjoy Pete and I talking about a plethora of things. Some fun, others serious but all around a real great time. One thing my guest touched upon was, not letting an experience define you and figuring out a different route than the last. We also speak about crazy old ladies recalling vile…
 
As always, I try to be brutally honest with myself and transparent with you guys. This episode is no different. Many of us set goals in the back of our minds and forget to revisit them. Then when we DO revisit them, we lie to ourselves and don't revise them. Resulting in never reaching our goals. There is nothing wrong with missing a goal in pursui…
 
I love when I get to speak to an expert in a field that I want to know more about. Dr. Emmett Goods is a professor at The University of Rhode Island of Music and Jazz Trombone. With multiple degrees and a wealth of experience playing live music, his commentary on not only jazz but all genre was great to listen to. Music is a language that very few …
 
In true Simian fashion, something went wrong with the video and it is nonexistent. That being said, this episode is pretty much about doing the damn thing even when it's not pretty. So it is actually pretty fitting. This world can be so airbrushed and overproduced that truly organic works are extremely coveted. Be you, it's the only thing we can be…
 
Financial literacy is quite the common theme here on the show. Understanding how different markets work, interest rates, inflation, etc. can only benefit those who choose to learn. Much of what I talk about has been taught to me by Mr. Saatcioglu. He has a PhD in Finance, is a certified financial analyst and a professor at Rhode Island College. I r…
 
Yes, I am ACTUALLY excited for the college grads and no, I'm not being cynical. Ok maybe just a little. Graduating college can be a huge high for a lot of us, getting through the course work and completing something on our own gives us a sense of accomplishment. I understand a lot of you are eager to break into your field and that this high will ca…
 
You would probably recognize this two guys sooner by voice than you would by face, considering you are from Rhode Island. Paul and Al have been hosting their show on 94HJY for three decades, cementing themselves as road companions and radio legends. Many of us grew up on 94HJY and to see Paul and Al still doing their thing at the highest level for …
 
Sometimes we get bored with our current physical location and have a desire for something new. Having lived in only my home state for my whole life is beginning to affect how I interact with my all too familiar surroundings. Timing is always important in these matters, both lack there of and ample. Stay inspired! - Follow me on Instagram - https://…

We all go through our bouts with frustration during many different stages in life. Whether you're stuck in a position you don't want to be or want to break away from the path you were given, frustration plagues all humans. Especially the young humans, we are impatient, ill-prepared and uncertain. However, we can overcome and diminish our levels of …

Happy Monday all, please enjoy my take on the ass whooping that various individuals gave and received during UFC 261. I also have a little bit to say about cryptos.
