Hey Prosers,

I know. I know.  Let's not talk about that lil' missing in action thing. The important thing is that I'm here now and so are you!

This episode features a humor writer that I discovered earlier this year on McSweeney's. Adam Rotstein has an undergraduate degree in - get this - neuroscience - but he abandoned the field to pursue his love of comedy and humor writing and now he's in LA working on a pilot.

In this show, which was recorded in March but fell victim to my unbalanced work schedule, we talk about Adam's writing process, his experience writing for Reductressand how his degree helps his writing.
