I was a guest on my favorite podcast! The Todd Glass Podcast and couldn’t have enjoyed it any more. So much fun. Todd is a great comedian and very very nice. Rare combination in comedy. He brings on his funny friends and they talk about whatever they want. And, of course, there are bits! Lots of bits!!
My Theme Song!!!
