Sherman and Jess read from some of their shortest stories in this episode. Sherman’s is called Loyalty, which he figures is just three sentences short of being done. Jess reads from The Famous Actor, which was inspired, sort of, by True Detective. This leads into a conversation about meeting and not meeting celebrities, which starts with Prince and Jack Nicholson, and ends with Sherman calling his dad from Kareem Abdul-Jabbar’s toilet.
They also welcome musician Aaron Guest of the band Polecat, a rootsy, genre-hopping band out of Bellingham, Wash., play a few of the band’s tunes, and discuss their own favorite songs.
