Golden Spiral Comedy: Mindy Raf and I host a show where the sets get longer or shorter according to the Fibonacci sequence: 5 minutes, 8, 13, and 20 minutes. We always get an amazing lineup! We're at Dream Baby (162 Ave B @ 10th Street) every first Tuesday. Follow us on Instagram for lineups and show photos.

Kid/Life Crisis Podcast

Fellow standup comic and author Raquel D'Apice (buy her book!) and I sit down with various guests (past episodes include NPR's Ophira Eisenberg and NASA's Michelle Thaller) to talk about the decision of whether or not to have children. You can listen online or subscribe in iTunes. New episodes coming in 2018!

The Shade Of It All Podcast

After my friends Sharron and Kyle and I watch RuPaul's Drag Race, we gather around the table to throw shade at the queens, the producers, and each other. We've covered the last three seasons of RuPaul's Drag Race, plus All-Stars. When the show is on, we record weekly; when it's off, we gather according to our whim!
