The College Years is a look deep into the vaults of The Sound of Young America. Take a journey with us every week as we post a new program from our salad days.

Today's theme: My My Marmot

In this episode, Jesse first talks with the founders of Lebowski Fest, Will Russell and Scott Shuffitt. Lebowski Fest is an annual celebration of all things Big Lebowski. This year's Lebowski Fest is coming to Tampa, Florida on February 25th and 26th. There will be a screening of the film and bowling, among other fun things.


Jesse also talks with Seth Greenland. He's the author of the novel "The Bones," which satirizes Hollywood and the world of comedy. And Jesse fields some calls from callers eager to talk about marmots! What's a marmot, you ask? Listen to find out!

The LA Times on Literary Deathmatch

| 0 comments

Carolyn Kellog of the LA Times was kind enough to come by the Literary Death Match show I was part of here in Los Angeles the other night. The experience of arbitrarily judging literary readings before a crowd of drunk 20- and 30-somethings was new, but it felt as familiar as an old pair of shoes. Or an old, well-worn metaphor.

In her write-up of the event, Carolyn wrote that I "proved he doesn't need radio's quiet room and a microphone to be funny." That was very nice of her, though I like to think of my work as much more than just my world-famous "Lazzi of the Quiet Room and Microphone." (Admittedly, that's what I'm known for in Commedia Dell'Arte circles.)

By the way - the champion turned out to be Seth Greenland, who was a guest on The Sound some years ago, talking about his novel The Bones, about the comedy industry. It turns out that Seth is now a writer/producer with Big Love. So that's neat, too.
