Brian Thompson (@Amsci) of the podcast QUIT IT is a comedy writer (Feb 19 UCB-LA) and a self-admitted, literary nerd. We are gathered to speak fo Kurt Vonnegut, and we do, we dork out hardcore on books for the hour. I do weed off and sypathize with the witch in Tangled.  Brian goes with it and makes it all so fascinating. It's a good one. Enjoy.

Feel free to DONATE again to the show. My dream is that, if you can, donate $100 over the course of the year. That's $8 a month. It just gives me cash to pay for the extraneous cost of doing the show and it REALLY makes me feel like you value the show and find it worthwile. So there's that.

If you want to order TDF merch (T-shirts, CDs, Hoodies) do it where my standup schedule and links to all things are found, There is also an AMAZON banner (white) on the front page that, if you go to amazon through that portal, order your stuff, I get a kickback. No additional cost to you. Very supportive. is the podcast network that I'm with and there's a lot of grea pods over there if you're looking for more goodness.
