Hey! Sad the World Cup is over? Feeling MLB All-Star postpartum depression? Zach Neumeyer, Matt Fisher, and I have a new podcast called Obstructed View. It’s a sports book club! We read sports books and then make fun of them. In the first episode we read Goose: The Outrageous Life and Times of a Football Guy by Tony Siragusa. You will love this podcast even if you don’t like sports or books (but, seriously, you don’t like either?). We also have the wonderful talents of Jonathan Marballi reading excerpts as Goose! Also, the great Geoff Garlock sings our theme song! Listen, subscribe, give us 5 stars!!!

The Mayday PAC is a SuperPAC. That means it spends the money it collects independently of any political campaign. But the ultimate aim of this SuperPAC is to end the dominance of SuperPACs in our elections.
We want fundamental reform that will change the way elections are funded. The first step towards that goal is to elect a Congress that will enact fundamental reform. Once we have that Congress, we will then consider the constitutional reform that will secure fundamental reform.
Help fund a SuperPAC to help kill SuperPACs.
Lawrence Lessig is a straight shooter for real, so think about giving him some money to do some good for American politics.
It’s time for Beginnings, the podcast where writer and performer Andy Beckerman talks to the comedians, writers, filmmakers and musicians he admires about their earliest creative experiences and the numerous ways in which a creative life can unfold.
On today’s show I talk to comedian Andy Daly. Born in New York, Andy started comedy in the late 90s first with Chicago City Limits and then with UCB, where he was part of the first wave of the theatre and performed on the legendary team The Swarm. In 2000, Andy moved to LA to join the cast of MADtv, and since then has performed on a number of awesome shows including Eastbound and Down, The Life and Times of Tim, and Reno 911. Recently his show Review premiered on Comedy Central, where Andy’s character Forrest MacNeil reviews life events like getting a divorce or being a racist.
Early in March, Andy came over to my Harlem studio to discuss The Monkees, the fragility of existence, fatherhood, “Cookies On a Shelf”, neighborhood games, living in your imagination, the character of Ridgewood, NJ, and trouble with school. And in the second half of the show, I talk to my friend, UCB house performer and former Beginnings guest Matt Fisher about how fatherhood has transformed him and how children affect your creativity. Matt’s one of my favorite people, and I learned a lot of stuff about how fatherhood affects who you are.
