Today I'm super-glad to welcome stand-up and comedy writer Frank Conniff back to the show. Originally from New York, Frank ended up in the midwest  in the19 80s doing stand-up. During this time, he met the future creators of Mystery Science Theater 3000, and was later brought aboard the show during the second season, both as a writer and appearing onscreen as TV's Frank. Since then, Frank's worked on a number of cool projects including Totally Biased, The Jimmy Dore Show, Invader ZIM, Cinematic Titanic and more.

On today's show I talk to Katherine, Teeny and Lizzie Lieberson of the fantastic band TEEN. The Lieberson sister come from a long line of musicians and dancers, but originally, only Teeny had pursued music as a career, playing keyboards in the popular band Here We Go Magic. While she had some time off from the band, Teeny began to write and record songs on her own, and eventually recruited her sister and friends to form a band to play the songs. They've released a number of albums and EPs, and their latest album The Way and Color is now available on Carpark Records. It's genuinely an awesome album.

Couldn't have had a nicer time on this week's episode with Brian Huskey. Known as a comedic actor, Brian actually started as a musician, playing in the band Bicycle Face in the North Carolina scene that gave birth to bands like Superchunk and Archers of Loaf. After moving to New York, he started taking classes at UCB, where he formed the group Naked Babies with Rob Corddry, Seth Morris and John Ross Bowie, and became one of the founding members of the seminal house team The Stepfathers. Since moving to LA, he's written for and acted in countless shows and movies including Children's Hospital, The Onion News Network, Veep, This Is the End, Kroll Show, Neighbors, Bob's Burgers and more!
