    This week on Good One, host Jesse David Fox sits down with stand-up legend Paula Poundstone. Rising to prominence in the late 80s and early 90s, Paula became well known for her off-the-cuff conversational humor (not "crowd work", because she hates that term). She also details her humble beginnings in the Boston comedy scene before moving to San Francisco, where she truly found her voice. She later breaks down one of her most iconic bits from her 1990 HBO Special, "Paula Poundstone: Cats, Cops and Stuff". I know, she had a comedy special on HBO before they were cool.

    The Specials - Bo Burnham's Inside

    1:39:21

    This week, host Jesse David Fox decides to give the people what they want: some Bo Burnham's Inside content! BUT Bo isn't doing any interviews, so an episode of Jesse's Patreon podcast, The Specials, will have to suffice. The Specials is a podcast devoted to the fine and noble art of stand-up comedy, hosted by journalist and comedy expert Jesse David Fox (Vulture, Good One); writer and critic Kathryn VanArendonk (Vulture); and producer/comedy fan Jessamine Molli. Every episode, Jesse, Kathryn, and Jessamine dissect, rate, and review a stand-up special. It could be a classic like Dave Chappelle's Killing Them Softly or a newer special like Maria Bamford's Old Baby. We could also review something bad...for a price. Whatever we review, you'll hear the three of us do a deep dive into the cultural and artistic significance of the comedian in question and his or her work. If you are a fan of stand-up, this is an essential listen. Subscribe to the podcast on Patreon. You can follow Kathryn on Twitter. Follow Jesse David Fox on Twitter and Instagram.
