    What to say in the wake of loss, besides the old cliché platitudes.

    Featuring a standup comedy clip of Matt Knudsen from our live show in Denver!

El marinero salado ,

Valid educational advice

As a teacher who used to watch “Those Who Can’t,” I have always appreciated their satire of US education. But, if you’re a teacher, too, check out the episode “Those Who Can Give Good Advice” for some (unexpectedly) good advice on what makes a great teacher (and, many solid laughs).
