Recording: Featured Session: More Than a Joke: The Road from Sitcom Success to iHeartPodcasts Powerhouse, Mar 11, 2023

Ed Helms and Brian Baumgartner are known as TV and film funny men, but they’ve branched out into podcasting with iHeartPodcasts – in surprising ways. Ed’s show “SNAFU” tackles the stories of history’s epic screw ups, and Brian’s show “Off the Beat” gets guests to talk about their favorite jobs. Join moderator Holly Frey (Stuff You Missed in History Class) as she finds out what led these comedians to seek out meaningful stories in the audio medium, and how they manage to still keep it humorous.
