Episode 80: Josh Saltzman

I sat down with television writer Josh Saltzman, who I had the pleasure of working with on the animated series Pete The Cat for Amazon Prime.  Listen in, as we get to know each other better, while discussing grandfather humor, closeted memories, schizophrenic llamas, and manic frogs.
