Episode 94 - David Wain

Canadian podcaster Corey Pierce joins me to deconstruct the art of comedy by not only focusing on the films of director David Wain, but by going down a list of our favorite lowbrow comedies.  We digress a bit here and there, but overall, I just wanted to do an entire episode devoted to the comedy genre and "state" my case for why WET HOT AMERICAN SUMMER is my favorite comedy.  Other hot topics include metal music, Tim & Eric, the recent Netflix prequel of WET HOT, and a whole lot more. Surprisingly, I think neither of us said the phrase "Comedy is subjective" once!  It's a miracle!
