Based on Nothing

@Malive and I recorded a podcast on my 24th birthday after a blizzard. We play a game called Name as Many Cancelled NBC Shows as You Can, someone sings karaoke alone because someone else refuses, and we get to the bottom of some real deep stuff. Mal gives advice on super cats, freaky Fridays, getting to places, loud noises, Twitter meltdowns, immortal beings, fixing the Oscars, actual good life advice and much more. This is really and truly one of my favorite episodes of the podcast and one of the most fun to date.

Comedian NEEL NANDA is on the podcast this week. Neel is a great stand up, actor and writer who lives in Los Angeles. He does stand up all over town, he's been on a few television shows you've heard of, and he's very fun to talk to. We get to know each other, Neel talks about his experiences doing comedy in LA, we pitch each other bad sitcoms and movies, we played Name Ten Podcasts, we talk about first jobs, and finally Nee's acquaintance and fan favorite Based on Nation guest Natasha Dye joins us for some Growing Pains karaoke. 

2-3 more episodes coming in January! Thank you for listening! Please subscribe on iTunes, rate and review, and tell a friend!
