RadMon Recommends: Please Like Me

Situational Comedies, or as they are more commonly known, “Sit-Coms”, have been through interesting phases of development since I Love Lucy graced people’s tiny black and white boxes in the 1950s. In the 66 or so years that sit-coms have been popular, shows within this genre have been fake documentaries, candid peeks into “real” family lives and tales of “nerds” trying to exist in the real world. And although these shows attempted to represent “situations” between a family or a group of friends, no other modern show comes even close to being as realistically situational as Josh Thomas’ Comedy, Please Like Me.

PODCAST: Episode 4 – In the Nick of time

This week’s episode wasn’t all fun and games as my new business partner, Nick Pederson, came into the studio to make business decisions. Nick and I teamed up to disrupt the huge industry of University Shuttle Bus Timetabling and Nick was so impressed with me during the interview he promised me 100% of profits from our new lucrative app.  When not making big corporate decisions Nick and Jamie discussed their shared love of comedy podcasts.
