He's a writer and comic, and, most importantly for the issue at hand, he lived in San Francisco for lots of years and still keeps an apartment there. Oh, and he also infiltrated Judge Joe Brown for a Cracked article once. Who better to tell me that everything I believe about the city is incorrect?
Speaking of new places, we recorded this episode in New York City. I was there for two weeks, and the fine folks at Stand Up NY Labs were kind enough to let me use their space to record my babbles. If you record a podcast in New York and you don't do it there, you're fucking up. Just look at the place!
I also brought along Alex Schmidt, who runs the Cracked Tumblr, among other things. He's a funny guy. We did a standup show together while I was there and everything (thanks to my pals at the Stand for that)! In keeping with the theme of today's article, we made the entire episode about living in different places, with one quick detour to talk about how goddamn awful Rolling Stone magazine has become.
