This week, host Jesse David Fox decides to give the people what they want: some Bo Burnham's Inside content! BUT Bo isn't doing any interviews, so an episode of Jesse's Patreon podcast, The Specials, will have to suffice.

The Specials is a podcast devoted to the fine and noble art of stand-up comedy, hosted by journalist and comedy expert Jesse David Fox (Vulture, Good One); writer and critic Kathryn VanArendonk (Vulture); and producer/comedy fan Jessamine Molli.

Every episode, Jesse, Kathryn, and Jessamine dissect, rate, and review a stand-up special. It could be a classic like Dave Chappelle's Killing Them Softly or a newer special like Maria Bamford's Old Baby. We could also review something bad...for a price. Whatever we review, you'll hear the three of us do a deep dive into the cultural and artistic significance of the comedian in question and his or her work. If you are a fan of stand-up, this is an essential listen.
