Al likes to say “This was a really good podcast…for a change.”  Every single podcast.  And I laugh…every single time.

The only thing better than a goofball…is a really smart ridiculously funny goofball.

Welcome to the forum.

Al Franken chats with Howard Fineman about what the hell happened to the Republican Party.

It’s nice to listen to two Americans who know what they’re talking about.  For a change.

I think funny people can be found in every walk of life.  In any profession.

Listening to Al Franken interviewing political experts is fun.  It’s like Marc Maron when his guest is a musician.  Not only was his voice made for radio his brain is a veritable library of rock and roll history.  The people he interviews are astounded by his knowledge and he leaves them with the impression he worked tirelessly researching their biography in preparation for the interview. 

It reminds me of a former Canadian television host named Brian Linehan who was known for his meticulous attention to detail.  Anyone who remembers the spoof version Martin Short portrayed on SCTV called Brock Linahan knows just how impossible it is to picture the actual guy now.

Listening to comedians interviewing comedians is my favourite.  It’s hard to be angry when yer laughing.

Bob Saget talks to Eric Idle in this podcast.
