As twin brothers, Randy and Jason Sklar share identical genetic codes. Beyond that, they also share a keen understanding of the nature of songwriting, joke structure, and what it means to be an artist. Utilizing an almost telepathic connection to play their timing and delivery off of one another, the dynamic duo of post-modern humorists have had twice the impact on the world of comedy than any individual performer could hope for, having released four critically acclaimed comedy albums, two Comedy Central Half Hour Presents specials, and made appearances in countless shows on FX, HBO, and ESPN. They bring the bulk of their lifelong Wilco fandom and knowledge to bear in this episode, as is needed given the amount of backstory there is to cover behind the band's 2002 release Yankee Hotel Foxtrot, broadly considered one of the best albums of this first part of the 21st century.
