It is fascinating to hear skilled practitioners explain just how they practice skillfully. In this episode, two writers for The Daily Show with Jon Stewart describe how they bring the comedy from the farm to your family’s table. In addition to their day jobs, Tim Carvell has written the book Planet Tad. Daniel Radosh’s book is Rapture Ready! Adventures in the Parallel Universe of Christian Pop Culture. Between them, they’ve won what seems like 350 Emmy Awards.
