Malignant Brain Humor

Hey folks! This episode went in the can ages ago, but a bunch of time-sensitive releases pushed it back. Thank goodness that the excellent writer Joe Berkowitz is still killing it over at Fast Company, and also in a wide range of other publications including The Atlantic, Mcsweeny's Buzzfeed, GQ and more (and more (and more)). 

Clever, insightful, and (most importantly) I like him because (just like me) he was a fat kid. 

Check him out at:

@JoeBerkowitz, on Tumblr, and at Fast Company.

And as a taste, here's a recent bit he posted that I particularly enjoyed: EMINEM'S TONGUE-TWISTY, FURIOUS FREESTYLE SOUNDS LIKE BILL COSBY WHEN SLOWED DOWN

Dan Wilbur joins the podcast to discuss his book How Not To Read, the differences between being funny in writing and being funny out loud, Venn Diagrams and the role of esoterica and self-promotion and internet culture on Comedy & more. Excellent episode, excellent fellow. 

Buy his book (I own a copy and very much enjoyed it), check him out at DanWilbur.com, on twitter @DanWilbur, on his podcast Two Book Minimum and Thursdays in NY at UCBEast where he hosts Lasers in the Jungle.
