My guest is ME. Maria Bamford is the guest host interviewing me about my dorkdoms that she most enjoys. She’s thinks I haven’t talked enough about Chicken or Romance Novels. Maria, btw, is much better than Andy in not talking about herself. She says she’s over talking about herself right now. So she interviews me. We’re at lunch. It’s noisy. And Maria has taken up a loud hobby of crunching ice. I hope you enjoy meeting me. Again.
