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.

Laura got back from Door County a few hours before our release so the notes will be abbreviated for this episode.
Summary: Laura wanted to go on trips to Baltimore, MD (to see a fairy festival and interview Uncle Fun's husband) and Door County (for a writing retreat) so she used Postmates, an "app based delivery service," to earn 1300 bucks. She also tried Caviar and Door Dash (similar apps) along the way.
Questions we answer: How much, on average, did she get paid per hour? Is it a good way to earn money as an artist? How many tickets did she get? What are other downsides and unexpected perks? What's it like to hang out with Uncle Fun all day? What was her writing retreat like?
