In our 3rd podcast we shake it up a bit, and interview someone from the comedy world instead of the DS community.  Matt Braunger is a very good friend of SUFD founder, Rob Snow, and will be the headliner in an upcoming SUFD event on September 27th in Chicago.  Matt has 2 Comedy Central specials, appeared on Letterman, Conan, was a cast member of Mad TV, cast member of NBC's Up All Night sitcom, regular on Chelsea Lately, and many other network and cable programs.  He's also an all around great guy.  I interview Matt about his past, and we get into his view of the R-word, and how it relates to the comedy community.  Incredibly insightful and throught-provoking comments from Matt.  Enjoy the ride!

Very entertaining and informative interview with Sara Weir(VP Advocacy and Affilitate Relations) and Mark Priceman(VP Marketing and Communitcations) of the NDSS. They provide some great info on the NDSS, the current bills in Congress, and how they work get those bills into law.  Can't believe the work they do, and the things they have to know.
