#54: Hypothetical Ghost Experiments with Kevin P Hickerson and Erik Griffen

November 25, 2015

Nuclear physicist Kevin Hickerson and I listen to voice mails from my brother and get super sciency. Workaholic's Erik Griffen pops on for a while and Craig Robinson fact checks one of Kevin's mold claims as he chills on the couch. The magic of the Hollywood Improv at it's best.

#52: Seinfeld writer Peter Mehlman

I finally got my Filipino nurses joke to work, and give a preview to "60 Minutes 7 Days." I got to talk to the legendary Seinfeld writer Peter Mehlman who's responsible for the term "shrinkage" and wrote one of my favorite episodes "yadayada." Check out his book "It Won't Always Be the Great." He wrote most of it in the shower and I'm for sure reading it now.

#51: Wheat Paranoia with Sam Tripoli

November 11, 2015

Thank you all for sending me videos suggesting joke topics for my new hour I'm trying to write in a week. I go over a new joke I'm trying to do about Halloween costumes and exit rows. After a long day and too much coffee and reading "Sapiens" by Yuval Noah Harari I start getting very paranoid that wheat has enslaved all of humanity. Sam Tripoli joins me and we both get super fired up about random shit. Starting a new thing where you guys can put a tip in a cyber tip jar on my website and I will send you a video of me playing your favorite song on the piano. I miss being a bar piano player. owenbenjamin.com Email me any of your thoughts I love reading them whydidnttheylaughpodcast@gmail.com subscribe, comment, and rate our podcast
