Episode 93 - Tim Nordwind

Tim Nordwind (OK Go) breaks the tradition of only having comics on the podcast! He talks about growing up working for a children's community theater in Kalamazoo, MI before bailing to Chicago to hold all the coolest 90s jobs while getting OK Go off the ground. Its a rare actually inspiring interview to go out there and make stuff happen!
