"Beautifully made... brilliantly original," says The Telegraph. A 20-part public-radio-style series that asks big questions about life and how to live it. Ex-lawyer/comedian Daniel Kaufman takes on a different subject each episode using monologue, stories, interviews, music, and more. This show is made with a lot of love and care (and OCD) and new episodes come out very infrequently, but they will keep coming, so be sure to subscribe to get all future episodes. You can also be notified of new releases by joining the mailing list at the website. FYI, a myoclonic jerk is that twitch that happens as you're falling asleep that wakes you up. Scientists think the brain confuses the feeling of your muscles relaxing with the feeling of falling or dying and sends a startle impulse to your body to save it. Why is that the name of this podcast? Why not?

You are one of my favourites....please keep them coming
What a great podcast! An excellent blend of silliness, humility, self-reflexivity, and insight. I went back and revisisted the first ever episode on nihilism today, and I was super pleased to be reminded that Myoclonic Jerk is still really young to be so.good.
Plus, if I hadn't started listening to this podcast, I would never have encountered the term "myoclonic jerk." I'm glad this exists.
