I’ve been doing a lot of thinking about what form the podcast will take; In fact, I’ve been thinking about it ever since the idea entered my brain.
Will it be a Marc Maron style thing where I rant for a bit, then interview people? Not likely.
Or will it be more like Bill Burr’s podcast where he basically just rants nonstop for an hour? Not sure I can do it.
I never imagined it to be an interview show, because as much as I like the few people who I call friends, I’m not sure I can just interview my friend Bob and ask him how painting houses is going. Who knows, maybe I can, but generally speaking it’s very different interviewing celebrities. People tune it to hear the celebrity.
I’m not sure if I can carry the podcast by myself, meaning I’m not sure I can just talk nonstop for 30-60 minutes and keep it interesting. I think I need a foil. A sidekick. Someone to challenge my thinking. Someone to yell at. Someone to make me laugh, or maybe more importantly, someone to laugh at my jokes.
I need an Ed McMahon.
