ABOUT OUR GUEST:

WHAT DO YOU DO? (Brief bio and how you like to be referred to on air. Think Twitter Bio)

I’m an improviser, actor, and comedian living in LA. Sometimes people pay me to write stuff. I’m also a science nerd!

WHAT DO YOU GOT GOING ON THESE DAYS?
I’m in the middle of pitching a few TV shows, which sounds like a much bigger, cooler deal than it actually is. I’m also recording a podcast called Braids for Howl, which is Earwolf’s premium content label. Braids is a trippy science show, meant to feel like the stoned 3am conversation everybody has freshman year of college about how big the universe is. I think it works? Who knows!

GOT AN OPINION?
I’m kind of over Marvel TV shows, but Legion is a notable exception. Also, the new Mass Effect game is deeply, deeply flawed, but very, very fun. I don’t think either of those are hot button? But they’re what’s on my mind these days.

NEXT WEEK: We welcome fellow TalkRadio.nyc host Kai Cole and prolific author Dara Lyons on the show to dish on the latest Pop Culture goodness!
