That's right, friends, we're doing something special on this week's Field Guide: we interview ourselves! Or, as many might call it "simply having a conversation". Coming up in the next month, we're going to do some special Field Guide episodes where we talk about specific shows and videos that we both enjoy with their creators. To kick that off, we thought we'd discuss a sketch that we perform called "The Newlyweb Game". Our discussion though quickly turns into a referendum on the state of Wrestling Team! Are Mark and Andy actually friends? Why do we write complex things? What kind of Troll books did we order as children? Whose fault was Wrestling Team's avant-garde period? How do you deal with death anxiety and eating disorders? All this and more on Beginnings Field Guide!
