    Episode #260
    Jason Rodriguez talks with Valerie Lopez about
    The highly underrated accomplishment of reaching semifinals in the 2022 Cap City Comedy Club Funniest Person in Austin contest and the finals of the inaugural Austin Comedy Competition (hint: it's his broad appeal).
    How comedy is the first thing that he's wanted to continue pursuing despite trying and failing at (in the past, see bullet #1).
    How an introvert can survive and even succeed as a comic in a very social business.
    Recorded November 2022

Alleywhoa! ,

Get to know Austin comedy & beyond!

This podcast is an excellent resource to learn about the Austin comedy scene, who’s involved, and what’s going on. Meet the comedians and get to know them better than we probably know each other! These interviews are absolutely great.

Lotta great comics here

I listened to Brendon Walsh's episode back in October 2017 & just recently listened to the John Rabon ep. Scanning the names on the other episodes and I've found a new pod to binge. Check it out!

So good

The Hunter Duncan episode is the best one but they’re all good
