Guest Appearances

July 30, 2018

Paul F. Tompkins welcomes you, no matter near or far, back to Spontaneanation! This time out, Paul’s special guest is winner of the 2018 Scripps National Spelling Bee, Karthik Nemmani! Karthik chats about whether or not he pretends to like/read famous writers when they die, his love of tennis, and if he sees a time in the future where he doesn’t want to spell words. Then, they are joined by improvisers Matt Gourley and Mark McConville, to improvise a story set in Dallas. And as always, Eban (only the best) Schletter scores it all on piano!
