    Episode 168 - How To Have Writer's Block

    In their penultimate episode, Drucker and Dweck talk about how much it sucks to be a writer. Was this episode necessary? Definitely not. Was it just another way to procrastinate and avoid writing? Probably. Honestly, we just wanted to end on the number 169.

Recommend!

I love the sociopolitical commentary; glad to hear from sharp people who follow the goings-on so closely since sometimes it feels too bleak to engage. It’s also a great peek into the lives/careers of comedy writers in real time.
