It's “That Guy… Who Was in That Thing” meets “The Nerdist Podcast” but with people even less well known!

Memories are plastic - we're getting the real dirt from people still crawling through it. Laura Scruggs is the playwright and Jake Scruggs is the technical guy who listens to a lot of “This American Life” and thinks that qualifies him to interview people.
