Michael Schur, best known on the internet as Ken Tremendous, is the guest on this special Christmas-week edition of the Awful Announcing podcast.
Schur and Dan Levy spend a good 70 minutes—good in terms of length and, hopefully, quality—talking all about his career as a television writer and producer for Brooklyn Nine-Nine and Parks and Recreation, going back to his days at The Office and SNL as well, and how all that comedy writing compares to what made him internet famous a dozen or so years back: Fire Joe Morgan.
Here is a quick rundown of most of what we discuss during the conversation.
- Talmudic Law and the notion of being "half-Jewish"

December 02, 2015 03:13 AM PST
As Awful Announcing begins a new season of the AA Podcast, we had a chance to talk with ESPN's Kenny Mayne exclusively about his new contract.
As the call began (before the interview even technically started) and the conversation veered into directions most ESPN stars wouldn't dare talk about on the record—what would Jesus do if Syrian refugees showed up on his shores, for one—Mayne insisted he was fine with the tape rolling, and off the conversation went.
We learned there is no real start to an interview with Mayne, and 45 minutes in to a ride that goes in directions neither thought it would go, part of you wishes there would be no end.AA Podcast #119 - Men in Blazers
