    43. R.I.P. iO West

    iO west is dead.
    Jeremiah and Ryan were both performers there for years and we will miss it dearly. We decided to scream into the black void that is the internet on this week's episode. We both loved the opportunities that iO gave us, we loved the community and we loved our teams. We gained many, many things from the theatre and we owe it a lot. We get into all positives and negatives on the podcast and if gossiping like high school kids is your thing then this is the episode for you. #RIPIOWEST

    41. Henry Kaiser and the FOOW Pod renaissance

    Boy Howdy is it good to be back!
    Jeremiah and Ryan took a 4 month hiatus to make some videos, work some jobs and kick some ass and we're all out of video ideas. So here we are, ready to do season 2 of the Fish Out Of Water podcast!
    We got really lucky to have our first guest of the new season be Henry Kaiser. This is actually the lost episode from season 1 but we wanted to start here because it was such a good episode. Moving forward we are switching up the format to feel like more of writers room where we have our favorite writers and best friends come on and share sketch notes, stories, and all the crazy b******t we do in the real world. We are going to still be accepting user submitted sketches to get notes from our esteemed colleagues and we will also be pitching ideas just like we always have.
    If you have ever wondered what a sketch team meeting feels like or want to get some quick tips to make all your sketches better then stay tuned because it's about to get real. Stupid. It's about to get real stupid. But also with notes. It's about to get stupid AND WITH NOTES.
    Whatever just subscribe to us HERE

Great Sketch Writing Resource

I signed up for a sketch writing class at UCB and was looking for a podcast on the topic to hopefully learn a little bit more and keep myself motivated. The format was perfect for me. They interview a guest, then get to some actually practical stuff like generating ideas and pitching. My favorite segment is at the end where they read a sketch and then get notes on it from the guest.
