THEY SEEM FUN - EPISODE 1  

This episode of I Seem Fun is very special because Jen sits in the All Things Comedy Studio - not alone but with a guest for a conversion. “They Seem Fun” is going to be a new sometimes addition to the I Seem Fun podcast - bonus episodes if you will and I know you will. But this week since we needed the content - I’m putting it up as a regular episode. Please welcome my guest Dan Bucatinsky as we discuss, what is real success, the worst ways to die, growing up in the real world, wanting to stay in reality, going to therapy, and so much more. Please excuse that I say “yeah” a lot when I listen. TERRIBLE habit. Won’t happen again.
