SPEAKEASY WITH PAUL F. TOMPKINS: GILLIAN JACOBS
Gillian Jacobs is an enviously gifted performer and I have gotten to share stages and microphones with her so many times. I am lucky! Luckier still to have this conversation with her while all you creeps eavesdrop.
(If you like the show, please let people know about it! If this is your first time watching Speakeasy with Paul F. Tompkins, there are many more episodes for your viewing pleasure to be found here on my YouTube channel.)

Thank you, Sean Serino, for posting this comment on James Franco’s Instagram photo of the cover of the Richard Scarry book What Do People Do All Day? I mentioned on an episode of The Pod F. Tompkast that I am terrified to say Mr. Scarry’s name out loud because I don’t know how to pronounce it and both pronunciations that I can imagine are rather negative.
I was delighted by the reference and by Ms. Serino’s phrasing.
That’s all for now, you LOWLY WORMS.
Finished a book on the plane and found this new one waiting for me when I got home. Hooray! #hooray
