Was really happy to have one of my favorite stand-ups, Eugene Mirman, from one of my favorite shows, Bob’s Burgers, on one of my favorite podcasts, Beginnings. We talk about how awful school was for him and how his family was able to escape Russia during the height of the Cold War. Subscribe and check out the episode tomorrow!
Oh shit, folks - this is TONIGHT! Super-excited about trying out a live-streaming episode of the show from the house I share with my lovely fiancee. And we’re not just taping some ol’ episode of the show, we’re doin’ it f’real with an audience, a musical guest and EVERYTHING.

How I Met Your Mother is over. I saw one episode of 2 Broke Girls and thought it sucked. What the frak else you gonna watch tonight at 8pm EST?
You can watch for free, but if you want to toss a few bucks at the show, there will be incentives like sweet posters made by artist Joe Karg (see above) and all profits will go to help Kitty Kind (I keep no $$$), a great all-volunteer, no-kill cat shelter here in New York.
And since it’s live online, you’ll be able to interact with us by tweeting questions and comments to @andybeckerman! Yeah!
This Thursday, an episode literally four years in the making! I got in touch with Eugene Mirman around the time we started the podcast, and he was into it, but busy. Periodically, I’d follow up with his publicist to try and work something out. Finally, a few weeks ago, he was able to make some time before going off to record some Bob’s Burgers V/O. Eugene’s a nice dude. Hear him talk about how awful the students at his school were and why communism is such a shitty economic structure. This Thursday! Subscribe and you won’t have to lift a finger in 4 days!
Yo wut up, peeps? Monday is a special all Spanish-speaking guests episode of Beginnings. In part 1, I talk to the Barcelona-based band SVPER about growing up in post-fascist Argentina and Spain and in part 2, I talk to actor and improviser Veronica Osorio about Venezuela, right-wing corruption and left-wing totalitarianism. Super-interesting people - I learned a ton about and had a blast while doing so! Subscribe so you don’t miss out!
