Norm Macdonald repeat from 2012


Norm Macdonald was just the greatest guest... and the greatest guy. In this, our most-listened-to episode, we had a semi-serious (okay, almost completely serious) 1.5 hour conversation ranging from family to science to God to comedy to literature to death to cancer. Some of it is especially hard to listen to now that he's gone. Recorded in 2012.

Podcast episode 593ish: Michael Teigen


Michael Teigen joins us from his cabin but it was the host's computer in civilization that wonked out for half the show. Still, we get unfiltered Teigen, which is always fun. He's an actor with 94 (count 'em... I did) imdb credits and a couple more coming soon. And he's a mainstay on the Vancouver improv scene. We talk about life without social media, William Shatner, Luke Perry, Bruno Kirby, and donating a kidney.
