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.
If you missed part one of the interview, you can find it here.
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.
