Building the Perfect Ice Cream Sundae (with Maria Bamford)

Clog lover, author, and princess of the Midwest Maria Bamford has landed! Put simply, she is a freaking icon, from viral tik tok-worthy character work in her seminal Maria Bamford Show, to her amazing standup career, Maria has always been comedian’s favorite comedian. Her new book Sure, I’ll Join Your Cult is an incredible memoir that fully translates her unique voice from the stages to the pages. We discuss the very specific details of her book deal, bag salads and Jon Hamm (who, according to Maria, is one of the larger celebrities). Also, I receive alarming and contradicting reports that a full ice cream sundae is NOT just a lil’ snack.

Accumulating Wigs (with Fortune Feimster)

We are so freaking lucky, Fortune Feimster is here! We had a blast diving into her character alter egos, hoarding wigs, and her start at the Groundlings Theater. We talked about Fortune’s transition from journalist to comedian and she gave me a sneak peek into Chelsea Handler’s hilarious hiring practices.

Being a Mark For Yourself (with Ron Funches)

Ron Funches doesn’t suffer from imposter syndrome, and it makes perfect sense, because he’s a truly talented and joyful stand-up comedian, and he knows it! During our conversation, we delve into his relationship with ambition, the art of comedy, and recognizing his successes. It’s no wonder he has unwavering self-belief, he’s done the work. Ron’s deep love for pro-wrestling and how it intertwines with his comedy is such an amazing metaphor for self-investment and pursuing our passions. My mind was blown about ten times during our chat, he was sharing such good wisdom with me that at one point I became speechless. Ron’s standout quote of the episode was, “I am a vessel here to bring joy and I am the motherfu@king $hit!”

Managing Everybody’s Expectations (with Chris Olsen)

Settle in for a delightful episode featuring the mega-talented Chris Olsen! We plunge headfirst into a discussion about TikTok fame, the beauty of the internet, and our initial meeting on the set of a Meghan Trainor music video. Chris is such a thoughtful and funny human, he should probably have his own podcast by now! We also delve into shamelessly watching our own videos and how I would rather throw my phone across the room and break it, before I let my husband watch me create a piece of content.

Trying To Be as Cool (as Tony Hawk)

Well well well, if it isn’t skateboarding pioneer, entrepreneur, and total sweetheart Tony Hawk! Tony has been doing some of the biggest and toughest tricks in skateboarding since 1979, and now he’s here! Did you know his first-ever skateboard is in the actual SMITHSONIAN? It’s in history now. Tony dropped in (get it?) to discuss high school, finding community, and what it’s like to do something before anyone else thinks it’s cool. Also, he tells me about the time a construction company unearthed his hometown skate park. You can probably guess what he did before the security guards arrived!

Walking Down Memory Lane (w/ Punkie Johnson)

We sat down with the hilarious standup comedian, actress and writer Punkie Johnson! We had an amazing conversation about the early days in Punkie’s career that ended with her sharing a story about a big comedy breakthrough she just had in Indiana. We also discuss a very specific Craigslist job interview and the science behind fake laughing. The biggest takeaway from this episode is that a giant brownie with two scoops of ice cream and hot fudge can still be a lil’ snack’ if you just believe it is.

You may know him from his star turns in Broadway hits like “The Book of Mormon” and “Hedwig and the Angry Inch,” to his memorable roles on TV shows on “Girls,” “Big Mouth,” and “The Boys in The Band.” In this episode, we dive into his newly released book, “Uncle of The Year,” a project that holds a special place in his heart. Andrew also shares with us the hilarious and heart-wrenching tale of the worst date he’s ever experienced, which ended up being featured in the New York Times. For two people who can cry on command, we had a very stable and delightful time!

Entering Power-Save Mode (with Ellie Kemper)

Hold on to your backpacks people, cuz’ Ellie Kemper is here! Her roles in The Office, The Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt and Bridesmaids are nothing short of iconic. We passionately discuss energy hoarding, family and setting boundaries at work. Newsflash: Me and Ellie are deeply on the same page about virtually EVERYTHING. I couldn’t let her go without asking about her big break on The Office, and how she became a deceased ghost the moment she found out Tina Fey wrote a TV show just for her.

Sharing a Dream (with Greta Titelman)

Greta Titelman is a brilliant actress, standup comedian, and writer set to star later this year in the highly awaited film Problemista, from A24 Studios. You might know her from her totally unique, singular roles in Los Espookys, Search Party, and Norah From Queens. Greta tells me all about how she created her online personas, built a support system, and learned how to love LA. Also, our early days with our respective husbands are similar stories which I found out by liking gossip a little too much.
