Mike Birbiglia and Fred Armisen. Two of my favorite comedians get together for a fantastic podcast. I don’t listen to a lot of podcasts. I just don’t have the time, and when you work in a podcast slaughterhouse, it’s like an invitation to go hunting. No real incentive. But Birbigs, who came to my college in the early aughts, is doing shows live for an at-home audience and we’re excited to support him tonight.


I got my first dose of Pfizer today, and am lucky our state is (among others) well run.

Everybody get your shot!
