The UCB Long-Form Conversations Podcast is the definitive source for news, information, and in-depth conversations about the best alternative comedy theatre on the planet. Now in its fourth incarnation, this podcast is a LaRonde, where the guest of episode 1 becomes the host of episode 2, the guest of episode 2 becomes the host of episode 3, and on, and on, and on. Sporadically, we also present “Palate Cleansers”, where UCB teachers and staff present official UCB news/updates, and offer experimental one-off episodes. Tune in for passionate, insightful conversations about the art, comedy, and love of long form improv, presented by the comedians who teach and perform at UCB (NYC and LA). This podcast feed also features the full archive of this podcast going back to 2009.

I miss this show! Such wonderful discussions and theory that you can’t find anywhere else!
Please bring this back!
It has been over 6 months without an episode! This podcast is great. Best podcast about improv conducted by real improvisers.
40 min is too short
I noticed recently the episodes shortened to around 40 min. And you can actually feel that the conversation is rushed, and they jump from question to question, and there's that feeling of urgency. 1 hour was perfect - you get the journey of the improviser, his/her POV about the improv, good advices for the listener and etc. Please, go back to 1 hour. Still 5 star!
