This week’s episode (and next week’s) is a real treat for comedy history buffs.  I was able to get the director of my graduate program, Norman Steinberg, a writer and producer with a career spanning multiple decades, to come on and talk about his numerous accomplishments, like writing with George Carlin on the Flip Wilson Show, co-writing “Blazing Saddles” with Mel Brooks, and producing the film “Johnny Dangerously” with Michael Keaton and Joe Piscopo, and other encounters and experiences with some of the biggest names in show business. Alex and I don’t do a lot of talking, since he really brings all the interesting stuff.

One thing, though, he is in his 70s and a bit of a quiet talker, so I recommend listening to this episode with headphones without too much background noise.
