Tomorrow on Beginnings! Michelle Buteau (Best Week Ever, Enlisted, China IL) talks about the length of Lark Voorhies’ uterus and also talks about how creeps used to hit on her when she was 12. Catch it all tomorrow!
Oh yeah, this was a fun episode, as is evidenced by this meme. I mean, in the space of an hour, Michelle gets silly like this and then talks about how her high school bf destroyed her ability to trust people. Check it out Thursday - I hope y’all dig it!
Hey dudes! Next Monday the 21st at 8pm EST, I’m doing a live streaming episode of the show from my place. It’s going to be cool and weird, and I’m using the opportunity to play with the format a bit, so I hope you tune in to check it out, plus, I’ve got some great guests:
Josh Gondelman (Last Week Tonight with John Oliver)
Franchesca Ramsey (YouTube vlogging sensation)
musical guest Lady Lamb the Beekeeper (Ba Da Bing! records)
You can watch for free, but if you want to toss a few bucks at the show, there will be incentives like sweet posters made by artist Joe Karg (and other things) and all profits will go to help Kitty Kind (I keep no $$$), a great all-volunteer, no-kill cat shelter here in New York.
Again, 8pm EST on Monday 4/21 and you can watch here. And tweet questions to @andybeckerman to join in the fun!
Stand-up and actor Michelle Buteau (Enlisted, Best Week Ever, China, IL) stops by the Beginnings studio to talk about how her high school boyfriend cheated on her and (in this clip) how following her instincts led her to jump on a plane to London right after 9/11. Full episode out Thursday, April 17th! Subscribe!
Eric Drysdale of “The Colbert Report” once jokingly called Beginnings “a juggernaut of melancholy”, which I think is an awesome tagline, but true, sometimes the show can get too serious which is why I loved having Michelle Buteau (Best Week Ever, Enlisted, China, IL) on. It’s not like we don’t delve into Michelle’s past, but we also have a lot of fun and joke around a lot as well. That’s actually my favorite kind of episode, one that swings between serious and silly (see the Superego ep). Subscribe to hear the whole thing this Thursday!

Meme from Thursday’s ep. with Cassie Ramone of The Vivian Girls (RIP) and The Babies. I try out a new metaphor for identifying with what my guest is saying, and it’s as terrible as, “I’m identifying with you so hard.” Subscribe so you can hear what spoke to my heart! (Episode out this Thursday, April 10th)
Here’s a meme from Thursday’s episode with Cassie Ramone of The Vivian Girls (RIP) and The Babies. Super-psyched to release this one - Cassie’s a really interesting person, and I hope you all check it out on Thursday!
I dig The Vivian Girls and love The Babies, but didn’t know what to expect from Cassie. Turns out she’s an amazingly cool person with a really interesting background. For music nerds, we talk about growing up in the NJ music scene with members of Real Estate and Titus Andronicus, and for fear-of-death nerds, Cassie drops some knowledge on me, in this clip above, about how to feel better about dying.
