Hey! Sad the World Cup is over? Feeling MLB All-Star postpartum depression? Zach Neumeyer, Matt Fisher, and I have a new podcast called Obstructed View. It’s a sports book club! We read sports books and then make fun of them. In the first episode we read Goose: The Outrageous Life and Times of a Football Guy by Tony Siragusa. You will love this podcast even if you don’t like sports or books (but, seriously, you don’t like either?). We also have the wonderful talents of Jonathan Marballi reading excerpts as Goose! Also, the great Geoff Garlock sings our theme song! Listen, subscribe, give us 5 stars!!!

As a stand-up comic and producer, she was an integral part of the comedy community…
