Julie Hoverson makes fabulous audio dramas. She writes, directs, produces and performs in three ongoing series. She knows her old timey radio, Lovecraft and the writing craft. LARPing is discussed and I try to keep up. It’s great, tune the hell in.

Guy Branum is a funny, funny comic and writer. You might have seen him on Chelsea Lately a lot; and he worked at G4. He's a great comic. He also knows some seriously obscure facts about Canada. Probably not obscure if you're Canadian. It’s excellent. Enjoy.

I did a LIVE show in Portland with Chelsea Cain at a Comedy Festival there. It’s a bit buzzy because of the mystery of me taping live. Sigh. Patrick Brady is not to be judged. But the show is so great. I can’t stop talking initially but, Chelsea Cain, famous author, is a Dungeons and Dragon Dork. IRL, she is the author of five best selling NYT thrillers described by the NY Times as, "steamy and perverse," which is being made into an FX series. She also wrote Confessions of a Teen Sleuth, a Nancy Drew parody. I read that. She’s smart, hilarious and, get this, a HUGE Dungeons and Dragons dork. It’s a good one. With stand up comedy, closing the show, from Barbara Holm
