EP. 3 — 3: John’s Double Life

John talks to Pam Brady (South Park, Lady Dynamite) about writing with her on The John Larroquette Show in 1995, when he was also going to grad school to become a therapist. John’s best friend from grad school talks about what a terrible therapist he would have been. Pam’s best friend Theresa Mulligan (Lady Dynamite, Baskets) drops by to surprise her. And creators of The Middle — Eileen Heisler and DeAnn Heline — join the party to mark the series finale (and convince Mary to remove John’s “Lipstick Jungle” credit from the podcast’s opening titles).

As the party winds to a close, John meets up with his first boss Michael Nesmith to talk about the Monkees, Television Parts, and the afterlife–and to find out if Nesmith tinkered with a video game to gain an unfair edge in a competition with John in 1985. Jack Handey refuses to take sides even though he was there, while Nick Kroll shares an old Deep Thoughts-related injustice. Sara Watkins talks about the invitation from her that led to Nesmith playing music again after a long hiatus. And John gets sloppy as he and editor and co-host Mary Kobayashi reminisce about the season…and take a risk.
