By | June 6, 2013 at 3:27 pm | No comments | News, Podcasts | Tags: , , , , , , , , ,

On a new episode of the Laughspin Podcast, Mike and I chat about Kathy Griffin breaking a so-called comedy record. Spoiler alert: I take offense at a comment she made about George Carlin. We’ll also get into the rape joke debate, reignited this time by a discussion between comedian Jim Norton and feminist writer Lindy West on Totally Biased with W. Kamau Bell. We also deliver news on Will Ferrell’s new project, Dan Harmon returning to Community, Bob Newhart and more. We’ll also listen a newly-released Natasha Leggero track, which is found on the new double-live Holy Fuck album. And we announce a new giveaway, wherein you, dear Laughspin readers, can win a free download of Dave Anthony‘s new album Shame Chamber!

Each week on the Laughspin Podcast, Dylan Gadino and Mike Gogel bring you comedy news, the most recent audio clips from the comedy world and a few laughs (and the occasional special interview episodes). Be sure to subscribe to the Laughspin Podcast on iTunes, SoundCloud or Stitcher.
