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"
- Jews for Jedis
- Christmas with Regis Philbin
- Filming holiday episodes in October (and Halloween episodes in August)
- The legacy of television comedy, and how that's changed from watching re-runs of Gilligan's Island in the '80s to now
- Harold Reynolds, Tom Verducci and John Smoltz
- NFL, Star Wars, DraftKings and the Parks & Rec future of seven companies running the world
- Andre Braugher's comedic presence, and why he doesn't win every award, ever
- Chris Pratt, and if/when Schur knew he was going to be the biggest star on the planet
- Writing comedy for comedians, and the collaborative process of producing quality TV
- Aaron Sorkin
- Donald Trump

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.
