    Remembering Brian Baron

    Once again, sadly, another friend who I had the honor of interviewing on this podcast has passed away.
    On March 18th, 2020, Brian Baron died from cancer that seemingly came out of nowhere and took him from us in just a month from diagnosis to death.

    I'm grateful to have had this conversation with him, originally recorded in 2015. His message to make the most of the time we have left and to cherish those we love is as apt as ever right now.

    RIP Brian Baron... May his spirit live on.

    I sat down with comedian Rob Ryan, whose mother died when he was 19 after many years of alcohol abuse, and his brother Tim died by suicide a few years later. We talk about the difficulty that just talking about suicide brings, as well as the different ways in which we push ourselves to deal with the realities. We also have a discussion on how to write jokes about unfunny topics.
