I thought I’d start a thing where I write about guests coming over to talk. Henry Phillips is coming up next, so I thought I’d talk some about him. Mike Phirman told us we should interview him, so I emailed him. He said he could come by and then we began the dance. There is a certain dance that always seems to accompany the booking process—especially a booking process as nebulous as this. We emailed back and forth a couple times and then he showed up on Marc Maron’s WTF pod.
I listened to the podcast late over the Thanksgiving holiday. My son wasn’t sleeping. I think I continued it into the next morning. It was a good podcast. Most of theWTF podcasts are good. Marc Maron operates like a modern day Alan Lomax—sort of. The analogy may not be perfect, but the interview helped me uncover something interesting.
Anyhow, I’m watching Punching the Clown now. You can find it on Netflix. Henry is a good man. His voice sounds like gravel. He smokes. He writes funny music. He knows Dr. Demento.
