“Talking out of both sides of my couch” Episode 31

in episode 31 I make a live appearance courtesy of Eugene Mirman at the Paradise in Boston, I find myself, Jonathan Katz, in therapy with Dr. Katz and the episode features a special guest, Susie Essman who knows more about oral hygiene and men than any woman I have ever met.

“Then and Way Back Then.” Episode 28

I don’t live in the past, but if you are trying to find me, I don’t recommend the present. In this–my last audio only episode–I return to an old radio show from the ’40s that helped form me as a young man. Then I go way back to ancient
Egypt, where I discover the world of Audio Fossils. Using a new technology, we are now able to hear sounds that were made thousands of years ago.

Special guests include Sarah Silverman, Andy Kindler, Tom Leopold, and Israeli scientist, Jonathan Devor.

Thanks for listening.

“When bad things happen to good ideas.” Episode 27

“Worst Case Scenario” is an old radio show I loved as a kid. Tom Silver, the host, is interviewing Arthur Köeppler, a leading expert on traffic safety.

“Bring Your Cousin To Work Day” is Sid Steiber’s favorite holiday. He loves it so much, he celebrates it once a week.

“Listener Response” is where we get to hear some of Jonathan’s favorite responses to the question he posed last week.

For next week’s question, Jonathan talks with Israeli physicist, Jonathan Devor, about the likelihood of audio fossils dating back as far as ancient Egypt. And then he poses the following question: “If you could hear any sound that was generated in the last 5,000 years, what would that sound be, and why?” The number to call in with your response is: 617-866-8000. Thanks for listening.
