    Get Off Chris Gethard’s Lovingly Hand-Tilled Lawn!

    We’re wrapping up our first season with one of our favorites: Chris Gethard! Known for his daring, experimental comedy, Chris has been doing jokes about landscaping and fatherhood since moving out to the ‘burbs—and he has feelings about it. He also talks about telling some of his most graphic, embarrassing stories in front of his parents and the time his dad taught him that violence actually CAN solve problems.

Good so far!!!

It was a good one!! One of my favorite actors is Vince Vaughn and I can’t find him in any podcast and I think he would be a fun guest and him talking about his dad. Also BatDad the internet dad.
