EP. 11 — The Underwear Department at Macy’s
Paul F. Tompkins welcomes you and yours, including families, back to Spontaneanation! This week Paul’s special guest is singer-songwriter Aimee Mann! They chat about the thing Aimee desires that she is most ashamed of desiring, accepting that other people have opinions of their own, and Aimee’s response to a therapist telling her to talk to her younger self. Paul is then joined by his pals from his show No, You Shut Up!, improvisers Ted Michaels, Michael Oosterom, and Colleen Smith, to improvise a story set at the Underwear Department at Macy’s. As always, the glorious Eban Schletter scores it all on piano!
