Ben Gleib

Comedian Ben Gleib (Neurotic Gangster on Showtime, The Idiotest on GSN) talks with me about the addictive nature of podcasting, technology's affects on society, clarifying the narratives in political & social debates, not needing to be right, valuing being wrong, and that the other side always has their own good reasons for feeling the way they do. We also talk about his recent travels to Israel and Palestine, the way he integrated that into his great podcast Last Week on Earth, starting conversations, and building communities. We share a ton of laughs, along with many large & small revelations, unique philosophies, our fears and hopes about the world, but did I mention the laughs? They are ample and various!! Strap in for one of my favorite comedians who also happens to be one of my favorite thinkers in podcasting-- we had a blast making this excellent episode!
