More Episodes

This week on the show we bring you another off the beaten path episode. Sometimes nobody is free Labor Day weekend to do an episode. It happens. But if you're smart, you have a conversation you had with Tom Goss while in Chicago to fall back on. Kyle and Tom sat late at night in Kyle's hotel room and ate chips and talked about comedy. If you're a stand up nerd there is a chance you might dig this episode cause Kyle and Tom explain their processes for putting together their albums. This was originally gonna be part of a bigger collection of pieces from Chicago but scheduling got kinda wacky. Things seem to be settling back into a bit more normalcy now so we should be back to some more regular episodes soon. In the meantime, please enjoy this very raw but very fun chat with Kyle and Tom!

 

Trigger Warning: Tom eats some chips.
