Unemployed with Anna Roisman

This week's episode of Unemployed is very special! Anna and Ellen discuss Anna's 2 year HQ anniversary, and then we have on one of Anna's oldest friends in comedy, the hilarious James Coker! You may know James from his brilliant sketches with Coker & Stratton, or those Spectrum commercials that air every few minutes. But before his comedy career, James worked at Balls Hamburgers and we love it. He also moved to NYC (ok New Brunswick which is v far from NYC) and started working as a Production Assistant on TV shows. Anna and James talk about all the gigs he had, partying too hard at an internship, and how he landed working on '30 Rock'! Also in this episode, they take a call from longtime listener and new friend Eric, who was working on 5(!!) political campaigns and after last week found himself unemployed. Anna and James give him a pep talk and discuss his future endeavors! It's a really special episode, so don't miss out.
