    Still Standing

    Still Standing is a documentary following the lives of George Saltz and Natalie K. Levant, two stand up comedians in their 80s, both starting stand up comedy after their 80th birthday. What begins as a story about comedy becomes a deeper conversation about aging, mortality, and creative persistence. Please enjoy my conversation with director Elizabeth Zephyrine McDonough.

Such a fun podcast!

First of all, the intro music is great! Then, Rob has one of those voices that you could listen to for hours. He’s so good at facilitating conversation, and he asks really interesting questions. All of the interviews I’ve listened to so far have been so unique… where does he find such interesting people?! My favorite is the spiritual concierge, definitely give that episode a listen. I’m not even much of a podcast person, but I definitely like Obsessed With Death.

Incredibly Intriguing

I've never actually liked a podcast until this one! Rob covers intense and interesting topics that I believe more people should talk about! Definitely well-done and keeps you thinking :)

Love it!

My favorite part is how they managed to work the Sopranos into the conversation, and the conversation definitely gets you thinking! It’s great listen for 7 in the morning lol. It’s great honestly! Can’t wait for more episodes! Leaves you with a craving for strawberries oddly.
