TDF Ep 12 – Mary Lynn Rajskub and Mike Siegel

over 10 years ago

A LOT of whispering. This week’s Dork Forest has a lot of whispering. Hopefully Patrick can make it not matter in the fix. Me, Mary Lynn Rajskub and Mike Siegel are also - ill prepared. Merry busiest season of the year. We do find out Mike is a travel dork, and we didn’t get into it ENOUGH for my tastes. He’ll be back. And Mary Lynn updated her racecar story from the last episode she was on, enjoys her dogs and some guilty pleasures in unathorized autobiography. And, there is plenty of me dorking out about many things. Enjoy.   Blackberry inventor - Mike Lazaridis Russell Brand – My Booky Wook Linda Barry - Cruddy Malcolm Gladwell – Outliers: The Story of Success Gloom, the card game Janis Joplin interview – I’m sure there’s a better version – minute 6:50 to 7:50 Funny or Die video Mary Lynn did which may or may not be safe for work.   Credits: Audio leveling by Patrick Brady!Music by Mike Ruekberg

Today’s guests have “other” dorkdoms and we FINALLY get to it at the end of the show – but we mostly discussed how much we like standup comedy. Because what the three of us really are, are comedy dorks. So, it’s another great show about how much we love standup...
