It's “That Guy… Who Was in That Thing” meets "WTF" but with people even less well known! Sure it's fun to interview the crazy famous and ask them about the difficult years, but that's been done. 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.

Original show notes:

The players are introduced:

Bryn Packard: Aspiring Actor recently moved to New York from Chicago

Jake Scruggs: Bryn's left behind friend, podcaster, and chief interrogator.

Laura Scruggs:  Innocent bystander and musical producer.

Why Bryn is not famous yet is discussed.

Notes from the future: 

I poured myself a stiff drink before the start of the show and the start was delayed. I made the mistake of continuing to drink while waiting what turned out to be enough time to get me slurring my words and meandering in conversation.

Even though I'v remastered the sound, it is pretty bad. We recorded this first episode using Apple FaceTime, Quicktime player, and the built in MacBook microphone on Chicago side. Bryn was in New York City receiving the call on his iPhone 4. I think he was wearing the headphones that come with an iPhone of the time. Later we would record both sides of the conversation, use decent microphones, and mix the tracks together in the edit.

We discuss how there was currently no way to see "Children Without Parents," which Bryn had just finished shooting. It is now on Amazon and free with Prime:

Intro Music: "Are You Famous, Yet?" - Laura Scruggs. Outro Music: "AYFY 1" - Christopher Kriz
