Alice Fraser is a comedian, podcaster, Australian, and (among many more things) a friend who is currently performing at the Edinburgh Fringe Fest right now (August 2018), as am I. This conversation was recorded there (here)! If you're anywhere near Scotland, come on by and see our shows. And wherever you are, thanks for listening. It will be just like you were/are there/here.

Episode 25: Luke Null and the Four Ordained Ministers

Luke Null is a comedian, a musician, and a mystery. He's two parts known, one part unknown. At least that's what we know. Maybe there's even more parts that we don't know. Listen up, and head into parts unknown. And parts known. (In the episode, the conversation goes even farther than this nonsense. But there is a lot of fun nonsense. Please enjoy, as desired!)

Episode 21: Ben Seidman and All the Secrets of Magic Just Kidding Only Some or None of Them

Ben Seidman is a delight. A delight of a magician, a comedian, a human, and maybe more things that he keeps hidden because he is a magician. That's what magicians do. Hide things in all aspects of life. Listen and find out ALL OF THIS MAGICIAN'S REAL LIFE NON-MAGIC SECRETS. Or some at least. Or none. I forget. But it's fun, and I thank you!

Josh Gondelman is a delightful human, wonderful friend, hilarious comedian, thoughtful writer, and many more adjective noun combinations.

Episode 16: Caitlin Durante and the Chainsaw Atheists

Caitlin Durante is a co-host of the Bechdel Cast, a comedian, a wonderful friend, a writer, and someone who was raised by chainsaw atheists. What does that mean? You must listen to find out. I think. I'm pretty sure we talk about it. Thanks and love!

Episode 15: Sam Kusnetz and a Horse of a Different Coconut

Sam Kusnetz is one of my oldest friends. Without him, this podcast might not exist, because I might be a different person, and also he might not have taught me how to use my podcasting equipment. Sam knows sound, so thanks for listening to these sounds of Sam's knowledge. And my nodding. And also saying some things. You are appreciated!

Jasmine Pierce is super funny and great. She writes for the Tonight Show. She's written for Reductress. She's had a podcast where she wakes people up in the middle of the night and starts recording whatever they say. And here, she says things while wide awake. Please enjoy the waking things she and I both say. If you like. Nothing is mandatory. LIVE HOW YOU CHOOSE!

Episode 13: AJ Jacobs and the Danger of Nouns

AJ Jacobs has read the encyclopedia, the bible, and lots of other books I'm sure. He's also written several books, so he's probably read those too. But now, he's on MY turf... talking out loud! As a podcast. (He's also made podcasts.) We have a delightful chat. Thanks for listening, or even just thinking about it. Good thinking!

Kenice Mobley is a delightful human, comedian, podcaster, and friend. On her podcast, "Person About Town," she meets people at their favorite places and chats with them there. And this conversation is one of MY favorite places. In a different, non-geographical way. You get it. Why still reading? Listen! Thanks and be well.

Episode 11: Jay Michaelson and the Rounds of the Night Table

Jay Michaelson has done rabbi things, poet things, meditation things, Jewish things, Buddhist things, lawyer things, writer things, and most notably right now, speaking to me on my podcast things.

Episode 10: My Grandmother and Her Love of Me

Today's guest is my grandmother. I love her. She loves me. We talk about laws she may allegedly have broken or not broken. We talk about statistical anomalies that have worked out for and against her. We talk in a conversation that after the fact she has assessed as "kind of fun," saying "are you sure people will want to listen to this?" It's her first podcast, and I love it. And I love you for listening. Thank you!

Episode 9: Todd Barry and the Nothing At All About Death

Todd Barry is a comedian, actor, writer, nice man, and more. He sits down to chat with me (while I am also seated) about many of those things and more, but definitely not death. Nothing here about death. Don't be afraid. Or do. Be whatever you want. No death though. Love!

Episode 8: Rebecca Vigil and a One and a Two and a...

Rebecca Vigil is a wonderful improvisor, and this podcast is entirely improvised. You know, like a conversation. We didn't plan almost any of it in advance. I had "Hi, Rebecca Vigil" ready to go at the top, but that's about it. Her live improvised musical comedy show "Your Love Our Musical" is always amazing, in large part because of Rebecca's own amazingness. So why are you still reading this and not listening? Because it's polite to read everything to the end? Thank you! As a reward for reading to the end here, these words shall end here (ish). Thanks for listening and hope you enjoy!
