Shepard Fairey on WTF with Marc Maron
Fairly goes into heavy detail about his career as a skateboarder, graphic designer, clothing label and artist. His stories about the Obama “Hope” poster and Obey Giant are fantastic.
Neil De Grasse Tyson on The Nerdist with Chris Hardwick
I have to thank this episode for reinvigorating a love for science. NDGT was funny, charismatic and “what keeps him up at night” is so simple but mind blowing.
Barry Katz on Mohr Stories with Jay Mohr
My line of the year “Break the Pattern” comes from Jay’s manager Barry as he explains to Jay the things certain individuals did that took them up a level after years of grinding.
Jay Leno on Mohr Stories with Jay Mohr
Regardless of what I think of his act, I appreciated Leno a lot more after listening to him talk about his work ethic. His story about how he got the guest host gig on The Tonight Show is classic.
Baron Davis on The Moment with Brian Koppelman
Funny enough this was recorded about a week before the tapes of Donald Sterling came out. Obviously the things he says about Donald are bad, but I think he held back. It’s interesting to think what Baron would have said if this took place the week after.
