Melody and Liz welcome comedy enthusiast and part-time stand-up hobbyist Jared MacKay into the tiger den this week to nerd out about comedy and comedians, both good and bad. We discuss joke-writing, comedy consumption, body biases, burning complaints, intermittent rewards and the psychology of comedy, as well as Steve Martin, Mitch Hedburg, Taika Waititi, Anthony Jeselnik, Jim Gaffigan, Bo Burnham, Hannah Gadsby, Nicole Byer, Robin Williams, Marc Maron, and more!
Find Liz @lizzouse on Instagram and Melody at melodystarkweather.ca. The podcast is of course at teachmetigerpodcast.ca, and you can support us over at patreon.com/teachmetigerpodcast. Thanks so much!
