This week I sit down with the mahogany-voiced Eric Martin of the This American Wife podcastÂ and Web Series. Â It’s quickly becoming one of my favorite things, so it was exciting that Eric picked a Weird Al album we haven’t done before. Â Apologies for the hot sound in advance, but I think it’s worth it.

This week, I get to talk with one of my great friends, one of my favorite actors, and a comedy legend. James, Jeremy and I talk about Bob & Ray with The Firesign Theatre’s Phil Proctor. It was a great experience
This week I finally get to talk to one of my favorite character actors, Dan Bakkedahl, about one of his favorite albums – Rodney Dangerfield’s “Rappin’ Rodney.” I’d never heard it before, and was surprised at how well a strong set-up/punch routine still works. Sure, it’s dated, but it still works. Do yourself a favor and pull yourself out of the mindset that what you love now is the best. At one point, this was. And it was still old-timey then.
My favorite film of all time is Blazing saddles. In fact, there used to be a subway/bus poster for the film hanging where I now hang my LPs. There’s plenty around Fort Awesome Studios to indicate my love for this film and anyone who had anything to do with it. So, only a few months after getting to play Hedley Lamarr onstage, I was honored to speak with Andrew Bergman by phone from New York about my favorite film, which started from a kernel of an idea, turned into a novella that I desperately want to read, and became a classic, sparking off the career of my favorite director. I had a wonderful time, and Andrew was a super-classy, nice, insightful writer – everything you’d hope. Enjoy.
