On today's show we talk to actor Maria Thayer. Originally from
Oregon and then Minnesota, Maria's first major role was as Tammi
Littlenut, Jerri Blank's best friend, on the incredible show
Strangers With Candy. Since then, she's been in awesome
project after awesome project including Forgetting Sarah
Marshall, Arrested Development, and lately she's been
co-starring in Chris Elliott's amazing Adult Swim show
In mid-August, Maria stopped by my Harlem studio to talk about childhood crushes, god as a terrorist, logic and meaning, synchronicity and complexity, her evangelical mother and libertine father, guns and pornography, social possibilities, and the chance that I may have discouraged a number of students from pursuing their dreams. And in "Andy's Learnin' Corner", I talk with my friend Ellena Chmielewski about crystals and energy - super fascinating!
