On today's show, I talk to comedian and author DC Pierson. DC is a member of Derrick, a sketch group that formed out of NYU's official sketch team Hammerkatz, that includes Donald Glover and Dominic Dierkes.

DC is also the author of two young adult novels, The Boy Who Couldn't Sleep and Never Had To and his most recent Crap Kingdom.
