About this Episode

Twenty-six grueling miles of body punishment and for what? Glory? Accomplishment? Awesome selfies? Who knows what it is about marathons that attract us, but we love the spectacle of watching people in incredible shape make their bodies perform at their peak performance and watch as they poop themselves, collapse and nearly die as they cross the finish line.

  • “Not Quite a Genius” by Nate Dern | The book he wrote! — From the senior writer at Funny or Die and former artistic director at the Upright Citizens Brigade Theater, a collection of absurdist, hilarious stories and essays on relationships, technology, and contemporary society. This collection of essays and stories spans a wide variety of topics. There’s the open letter to Charles Manson, the report of a brave archeologist’s journey into a suburban man cave, and a long overdue missive from Leif Erikson to Christopher Columbus. Walt Whitman even teaches a spin class. Nate Dern’s razor-sharp eye examines modern society and technology, man buns, dating apps, and juicing crazes. Anyone who’s ever scrunched their eyes at WiFi Terms & Conditions, listened to the reasons that led a vegetarian to give up meat, or looked on in horror at the evolving audacity of reality TV will appreciate Dern’s wicked and funny take on modern life.
  • Nate Dern’s Videos on “Funny or Die” — Sure, he doesn’t work there anymore, but he was involved with some seriously funny videos there. I especially like the Aasif Mandvi sketch “How ISIS Really Feels About Trump”
  • Comedy Central Unveils a Pop-Culture Show for the Internet, Inspired by ‘The Daily Show’ — The announcement about the new show that Nate will be hosting “The Creators Show”
  • Watch Nate Dern be really young and awkward on Season 3 of “Beauty and the Geek” — There really isn’t anything else to say.
