Paul Scheer

Couples Therapy

Paul Scheer was in the "graduating class" at UCB a few years before we started there, so besides making a lot of cool stuff we like (How Did This Get Made?, Black Monday, Human Giant, The League, Unspooled, Crash Test and so on!) - which would already make us nervous to talk to him - there's also an extra aura of "freshmen talking to a senior" that made us ANXIOUS before we started recording. HOWEVER, it couldn't have been more fun and natural chatting with Paul, and a discussion about the perils of carpooling leads into talk about this DISGUSTING industry we all work in which leads into some REAL TALK about relationships, and gosh darn, we couldn't have had a lovelier time! PLUS, of course, we answer YOUR advice questions! If you'd like to ask advice questions, call 323-524-7839 and leave a VM or just DM us on IG or Twitter!
