This week I hang out with Brad Hartland, comedians Joy Lane and Marysa Mavrakys, and James Boss from Babetalk. Joy talks late nights and crazy stories doing stand up, Marysa tells us about her upcoming live comedy game show, James talks about getting into heavy music despite a strict upbringing, and we all have a rousing discussion about penises.
Lastly, Joy teaches me all about hood living and we all learn some new terminology.
This week I speak with comedian Marysa Mavrakys about doing stand up in Indianapolis and Chicago, sketch writing at Second City, and gets very open about drawing material from her mother’s past drug abuse and having to become self reliant at an extremely young age.

This week I talk improv actor, stand up comic, and host of the Digression Sessions podcast, Josh Kuderna! Josh tells me all about the Baltimore comedy scene, hosting one of Baltimore’s biggest podcasts, and how he finagled his way out of work to interview Patton Oswalt.
This week I speak with Ryan Sweeney about his job running social media marketing campaigns for large corporations. Ryan was a member of my first band back in college and he gives some great advice regarding the best ways that artists can use various social media outlets. He also shares stories of touring back in our college days and we talk about using the improv technique of ‘yes, and’ing to generate good stage banter.
