Dancing on a Weeknight w/ @JoshGondelman— #KatieSpeakShow Ep169 04/20/2019

In brief: The fantastic ray of comedic sunshine, Josh Gondelman, is back on the show — finding time on his album release day, no less! — to talk about life, optimism, humor, pep talks, work-life balance, topic fatigue, making socially conscious material for diverse audiences, his new gig at Showtime’s Desus & Mero, an upcoming book, and more.

Funny and genuine, Josh is more than just an award-winning writer and standup; like his colleague on the Blonde Medicine label Emma Arnold, he’s exactly what you need right now.

Note: This show is available to stream and download for free so it can be accessible for everyone. If you’re able, consider becoming a supporter for as little as $1/month at PATREON or making a one-time donation at PAYPAL.me/KatieSpeak. Thank you!
