I read about Tyler's podcast in the AV Club interview from a few weeks ago, where you can also see a video about SF SOTO featuring Tyler, Cho, and Sam Rockwell. It's rather endearing.

Great podcast. I highly enjoyed this episode. There are some great insights about their methods and experiences in comedy.

Speaking of Margret Cho interviews, there's Gettin' Wet with margret Cho, part of Sara Benincasa's "Gettin' Wet" youtube interview show, where she interviews people in a bathtub.

I developed a pretty severe crush on Tyler when she correctly employed "exsanguinated" in the course of thatAV Club interview.

Margaret Cho doing a Cyndi Lauper imitation just flooded my brain with happy chemicals.

That's a very lengthy interview, and quite interesting. Thanks for posting!

Her interview with Adam Savage is not to be missed, either.

It's cruel to mention something like that without providing a link.

The full GirlOnGuy archive, for those who want to hear more such interviews.

Based on that AV club interview, Aisha Tyler and I had the exact same childhood. She, however grew up to be much better looking.

I was amused reading that interview how she had such a similar childhood to the interviewer (Jesse Thorn).

Good to know. I like Aisha in her other roles, but so far I'd only heard the first couple of podcast episodes & this one, and she just sounded so ...not-quite-there-yet in the early ones. I wasn't sure if it was that she's gotten more comfortable with the "interviewer" role or if it's because she are Margaret were able to talk like old friends because they are old friends, but it was an amazing improvement.

I really enjoyed the one with Sal Masekela

I was a big fan of this podcast initially (The Job Benjamin shit story is one of the funniest and best told things Ive ever heard) But after awhile I just found her a little too....keen? Excited? And it started to grind a little. May go back because the discussions can be great.

But imagine if her and Chris Hardwick had a kid! The energy coming off that kid could power the world.
