Category: Gettin’ Close Podcast

In this podcast I sit down with local entertainment personalities (and some national personalities) and talk about anything and everything. We get pretty in depth and often bounce from topic to topic. Always fun and always interesting- especially for those in the Philly comedy world. The frequency right now is one every few weeks, but I hope to do them more often. One day Seinfeld will be on this podcast. Available on for free on iTunes.
