This week, Guy and the gang discuss different representations of their respective careers in pop culture. How accurately is stand up comedy portrayed in Seinfeld? Are the lives of archaeology professors anywhere near as interesting as Indiana Jones’? Does ER do a good job of showing the process of having a baby? Plus, Karen talks The Alienist, Margaret gets into more podcasts, and Guy is in love with One Day at a Time.
With Guy Branum, Wynter Mitchell, Karen Tongson and Margaret Wappler.
That’s My Jam:
Margaret Wappler – First Aid Kit – America
Karen Tongson – Matthew Wilder – Break My Stride
Guy Branum – The comedy of Bob Smith
Each week we’ll add everyone’s jams to our Spotify playlists.
