Changed the way I think about writing

This is billed as "a podcast about jokes" but really it's about writing and creativity. Each episode is a peek inside a different writer's mind, an in-depth look at their creative process. I've been listening to it for the past year and it has has opened my mind to so many new ways of thinking. The diversity of the guests is wonderful; Jesse interviews comedians of all different ethnicities, genders and backgrounds. This podcast has introduced me to so many new and interesting people, and I've gone on to enjoy their albums and specials and even seen some live. If I ever meet Jesse David Fox, I'm gonna hug him.

“Not Buns”

There once was a podcast called Good One
Where the nexus of jokes was the end run
The host is insightful
The guests, all delightful
In short the show Good One is “Not Buns”

Fantastic “inside baseball” for jokes

Found this wonderful podcast via Anthony Jeselnik’s podcast. As a huge fan of standup comedy, a longtime journalist, and somebody who appreciates reverse engineering how different creative things work, this podcast is a dream. The host is knowledgeable and does his homework; personable and easy to listen to; and gets out of the way of his guests, serving only to guide them deeper into increasingly interesting information.
