Comedy writers Jason Hazeley and Joel Morris talk to people who make comedy about something funny that they love. Guests pick a TV show, a film, a book, an album or a comic that means something to them. Maybe we find out something about how comedy works. Maybe there's just a lot of giggling.

This fills a writer’s perspective gap between podcasts such as comedians comedian podcast, and more discursive ones such as RHLSTP etc. The hosts love for comedy, both old and new, shines through. I hope they can maintain the excellence of the first two episodes.
Funny and insightful. This has me going going back to the source materials—and seeking out things I missed first time around. Bravo and thank you to all concerned.
Under the hood...
