On the week of the 100th episode of his delightful podcast, Hunk, Mike Bridenstine recounts the long winding journey to that 100 eps. mark as well as how the pandemic inspired him to change his podcast format for the better, specifically by adding a panel discussion by comedian (a facet of comedy that needs reinvigorating in America). Of course, this discussion with TCB’s Jake Kroeger leads to several different, but deep, winding tributaries on the state and philosophy of comedy way. They cover the whole gamut of comedy’s past and very likely and not so distant future, especially in regards to stand-up comedy.

Also, “hot” takes on the new Sex & The City reboot and late night stand-up being done on a ferry.
