It's been a controversial week for comedy legend Andy Kindler. The Letterman alum kicked a hornet's nest by tweeting that Sam Harris is an anti-Muslim bigot... on what turned out to be the eve of a jihadist attack on Westminster. Harris pushed back. A Twitter shit-storm ensued. #WeThePeople LIVE is the only show that has featured both Harris and Kindler as recent guests, so we sought a détente. Josh spoke with Sam via email, and sat down with Andy to discuss the disagreement, Islam, bigotry, and the ugliness of trolling. Who's right? Who's wrong? You decide! Our thanks to Harris and Kindler for their time. Make debate healthy again, humans.

Andy Kindler - Episode 634  

Greg is late to his own podcast, so Andy Kindler starts it alone and then brings him to tears.

Episode 792 - Fred Melamed / Andy Kindler  

Fred Melamed is instantly familiar, not only because of his scene-stealing performances in the Coen Brothers' A Serious Man and Maria Bamford's Lady Dynamite, but because he is an indelible New York character. But that familiarity came with a price, as 20 years of successful work actually led to a complete bottoming out in Fred's life. He tells Marc how he pulled out of it. Plus, Andy Kindler stops by to talk about the big change in his life. This episode is sponsored by Showstopper on Spotify, Proper Cloth, and Sonos.
