Episode 295: Comedian and fishmonger Danny Palumbo joins your podcast lions to talk about winning the Funniest Person in Austin contest, restaurant humor, and more. Plus, a surprise visit from entrepreneur Arthur Truckee.
For the first time ever we’re selling something! Now on our bandcamp is a collection of our interactions with one of our favorite characters, Arthur Truckee. Previously only available for people who pledged to a radio station five years ago, this 6-track album is now available for one lousy stinking dollar. That’s it! If you want to sample one of the tracks before committing 100 pennies to it, you may do so below.
Our Scharpling & Wurster love is on full display on this thing and we think that’s great. Enjoy!
