On today's show I talk to musician and cartoonist Nick Thorburn. Born in British Columbia, Nick first came to prominence with the indie rock band The Unicorns in the early 2000s, when their album Who Will Cut Our Hair When We're Gone? was written up in The Village Voice, NME, Pitchfork and many other publications. When The Unicorns broke up in 2004, Nick then formed the similarly amazing band Islands. They've put out five great albums, and the latest one - Ski Mask - was just released earlier this summer.

On today's show, brought to you by Sal's Landscaping, I talk to comedian Todd Glass. Originally from Philadelphia, Todd began performing stand-up while still in high school. Since then, he's become one of the best stand-ups of our time. Todd's credits include everything from "Conan" to "Politically Incorrect" to the second and third seasons of "Last Comic Standing", and he also hosts the podcast "The Todd Glass Show" on the Nerdist Network. His latest album "Todd Glass Talks About Stuff" was just released in September.
