Just posted a new episode of The Dan Naturman Show. In this episode I play a call I made to “The New Yorker” magazine on my friend Dan Lobell’s radio show. Why did I call “The New Yorker”? Because they rejected a comedy essay I wrote that I felt was perfect for the magazine. I end up locking horns with a guy that sounds a lot like Bill Cosby, although I picture him looking more like Al Roker. Not the thin Al, but the older, fatter Al. Of course I could be wrong. He may not look anything like Al Roker. Hell, he may not even be black. I wasn’t able to get my essay in the magazine, but a good time was had by all. The show ended, as alway, with our weekly news roundup. Rob and I talked about Justin Bieber’s New Zealand interview where he appeared to not know what the word “German” meant. On his twitter page he claims he thought the Kiwi interview said “Jewman”. What do I think? Listen to the podcast. We also talked about Lawrence Taylor’s arrest for allegedly raping a 16-year-old girl. I made the point that LT was such a great player, even I had heard of him before the alleged rape. I pay such little attention to sports that I usually only hear of these guys when they run afoul of the law. We discussed the big oil spill as well and Rob and I wondered whether the spilled oil was still usable and if it’s worth going down there and trying to collect some of that spilled “black gold”. All in all, a fine podcast and worth a listen.
