This week the host of my favorite podcast is on my podcast - TOM SCHARPLING from THE BEST SHOW is here. Tom is a writer, director, television producer and one half of the comedy duo Scharpling and Wurster who are playing at Union Transfer in Philadelphia on Sunday 12/13.

Tom and I discuss meeting at a Destroyer show, all kinds of music from Death Cab For Cutie to Wolf Parade to Springsteen, Northern New Jersey, podcast persistence, Tarantino movies, what goes into making the Best Show every week, Google being despicable, the Scharpling and Wurster live shows, karaoke and much more. Tom is the best of the best at what he does and it is truly exciting to have him here on my little old podcast.

Garbageman Cole Johnston (@KeyboardCole) returns for a make-em-up episode of the hit morning radio show Jacob and The Garbageman. Full disclosure - this episode is dumb. I am not great at improv and we make up lots of stuff on the fly. We had a blast doing it. There are aliens, burned down chain restaurants, fascinating zookeepers, callers and strange products galore in this episode set in a weird, non-existant town. This one is as silly as they get and I hope it gives you the giggles in more than a few places.

LOTS of episodes with great guests coming at you in December. Subscribe to the podcast on iTunes, maybe give it a rating or a review, and look for more to wrap up 2015.
