Bob and Brooke’s Midnight Outtakes

Every Thursday night, Bob and Brooke record the script for the show. It’s almost the last step in the production process, so it usually happens late, after midnight. 

One of the fun parts of being a producer here is that you get to hear their late night back and forths. They’re funny, but a lot of it gets cut out of the show. Partly because they’re, uh, filled with unbroadcastable swear words.

Here’s an outtake from midnight last night that we liked a lot. 

One of my recurring daymares is that at the end of your life, you’re given Your Stats. How many hours, total, you spent waiting for your computer to load. Your total number of typos. An alphabetized index of all the people whose feelings you hurt without being aware of it at all. Most of those things are incalculable, thankfully. This website, unfortunately, reminds you that there are stats you can get right now, if you’d like.
So here’s a thing to know.
Alex Goldman’s wife Sarah runs a blog where she listens to every LP in his record collection, alphabetically. Alex is a record nerd, Sarah is not. The result is pretty sweet and also makes you think about why we love the art we love. And about how many times you’ve tried to convince someone you love to love your music. Or that they’ve tried to convince you to love their’s. Anyway, check it out.
