This week's episode of Beginnings is an oldie (as in a
month and half old) but a goodie (as in the guests were super-fun).
Earlier in the summer, I was invited to host a live Beginnings down
in Austin, Texas right before Labor Day weekend as part of the Out
of Bounds comedy festival. While the venue - the corner of a
coffeeshop - was perhaps not the best place to record a podcast, we
had some amazing guests that brought their A-game. Along with my
lovely fiancee, stand-up Naomi Ekperigin, I was joined
by film directors Todd Rohal (The
Catechism Cataclysm, Nature Calls) and Andrew Bujalski
(Funny Ha Ha, Computer Chess) and stand-up
(Return of the Son of Depression Auction, Opie and
Anthony), and we had a wide-ranging discussion about angry
childhood experiences, the best start to a fight ever, Prince,
telepathic spiders, high school rap dreams, horrifying tales of
summer camp, and Little Caesars. And in the second half of the
show, I talk to improviser and actor Dan Fox about bullying and being
bullied at school. Thanks for listening!
