New Podcast: College Town

I guested on College Town with Ryan Gaul, playing a new character this time. It’s always fun to play with Erin Whitehead and Seth Morris, and I’d describe this one as “cheerfully gross.” It’s part of Comedy Bang Bang World and you can listen and subscribe on The episode is: College Town E81: Kiss Kiss, Jan Brain Jan Brain (feat. Ryan Gaul, Lesley Tsina) Here’s the blurb:

This week, on a very varicose episode, Beebo and Jan welcome Doug Hancock of Hancock Toyota (Ryan Gaul) and Museum of Spite curator, Claudine LaBong (Lesley Tsina). They talk relationship baggage, old school men, family dinners, toothpaste flavors and the great Monty P (mons pubis).

New Podcast: The Storm Runner

I have a recurring role as an extremely friendly and helpful alien in this sci-fi audio drama made by some very cool people. Check it out! I show up starting in Episode 4, but you should really hear the whole thing. Get it at or wherever you get your podcasts.

“Beyond the civilized worlds lie the Five Rings, a cluster of planets racked by storms. Ezz Bennil is a storm runner, making her living collecting the valuable crystals that form on these dangerous worlds with the help of her attentive (and somewhat reluctant) ship A.I., Boat.

But a chance encounter with a deadly new threat forces Ezz and Boat to embark on an epic journey across the stars in an effort to save the world. Er, worlds. Plural. All of them.”

Recent-ish Podcasts

It’s been a while since I’ve done an update but I wanted to send links to a couple of podcasts I’ve been on, both really fun.

I watched Are You There God It’s Me Margaret and discussed it with Anne Rieman and Ryan Perez. Spoiler alert, it’s good! Mama Needs a Movie: Are You There God, It’s Me Margaret.

David Ferguson (The Birthday Boys) and I guested on College Town with Erin Whitehead and Seth Morris. This is a really fun improvised podcast about all the people living this one college town. For some reason, I can’t stop bringing up the Mütter Museum every other time I guest on something. You can listen to it by subscribing to Comedy Bang Bang World. The episode is “Two Jans and a Weeny.” Here’s the blurb:

“Jan and Beebo chat with Middleston College professor of figure drawing, Janet Vanderwurf and local Mammet Valley slumlord, Don Weeny. Tune in for a mental patient era debate, Jan’s nipples, Beebo’s Toilet woes at Lake Havasu, barrel sleeping and more! Produced by Scott Aukerman and Brett Morris.”

“Totally Pals!” Podcast

Did an episode of the Totally Pals Podcast with my old I Can Haz Ringwurmz friends Steve Szlaga and Amy Vorpahl. It’s basically a fake sitcom behind-the-scenes recap. I haven’t improvised with these two in ages and we laughed until we cried recording this. I hope it translates.

The Last Fallen Star Audiobook

Cover of Graci Kim's The Last Fallen Star

My first audiobook just came out! I recorded Graci Kim’s bestselling middle-grade fantasy novel “The Last Fallen Star,” which is about “an adopted Korean-American girl who discovers her heritage and her magic on a perilous journey to save her witch clan family.” It’s a lot of fun. My recording was made for LearningAlly, a great organization that makes audiobooks for kids with reading disabilities. Here’s a link you can use if you have or know a kid who is part of their program. For everyone else, I’ve uploaded a short book trailer:
