Here's some more of my interview with Anne Beatts. She talks about getting her first byline in The National Lampoon, the work of her then-boyfriend Michael O'Donaghue, and more.
If you're interested in learning more about the history of The National Lampoon, which in many ways is the dividing line between mid-century and contemporary humor, on this show, in which I interviewed the biographer of Doug Kenney, the magazine's editor.
I'll be running this interview on the radio show, but it might not be for a few weeks.
Some technical notes: I learned how to put still photos in there! And how to bring outside audio in under video! And my cross fades are slightly better! If anyone out there is a video guru and wants to help me improve in shooting this stuff, please get in touch.
