Part 1 deals with comedy, features, and how he got that rather unusual name.

Did you ask if there is any way of seeing "Thanks"?

Great interview, Ken. I was one of those who thought he was a women. As far as THE FAN, I didn't see it but as he indicated I guess hiring a Brit to direct a movie that's even indirectly about baseball might not have been the best of ideas.

Am I crazy that I automatically knew how Phoef's name was pronounced?

Thanks for that, first one I've listened to and enjoyed thoroughly. Gives the lie to the trope of comedy writers together being unfunny.
