Episode 55 of 385 episodes

An in-depth chat Jonathan Katz and Tom Snyder, co-creators of Dr. Katz, Professional Therapist. We talk about that watershed show for Comedy Central, as well as the Snyder-produced Home Movies, “Squiggle-vision,” Katz's stand-up and the WB sitcom he created starring Bob Saget, and Katz and Snyder's latest collaboration, Explosion Bus, which can be seen at http://www.explosionbus.com/ (the new season of which begins Sept 18). Enormous thanks to Tom Wickersham, of Katz's team, who tracked me down while I was in Boston and arranged this interview before anyone could decline.
