This week, host Jesse David Fox sits down with long time friend of the show, Vulture staff writer Kathryn VanArendonk! Jesse has gathered Kathryn here today to talk about a topic that's been really irking her for a while now: the new trend of using documentary footage in stand up specials. From Yvonne Orji to Gary Gulman to Jenny Slate, Kathryn explains exactly why she feels specials are better off without it.
