This is The Last Exit Show.
We're a comedy podcast. The comedy podcast for you to stagger into after all the reputable comedy podcasts have closed, where improv kids are regarded with deep skepticism and happy people are banned outright.
We talk, we do sketches, we try to be funny sometimes but we don't force it when we have something interesting to say, and we've been doing it awhile. This episode is for people just discovering the show on Libsyn. It's also a way to hunker down and get nostalgic if you've been listening for a long time. There are a few of you, and I can prove it.
It's not our first episode, of course. How insane would that be, to preserve our first episode for the whole world to see? It was probably just a collection of "umms" and ironic belligerence. Besides, it's gone. I threw it away. It's buried six feet underground in a train yard in Tehachapi.
Our archive, such as it is, starts at episode 40. Episode 40 is when we found an EQ method we were content with, had pop screens, real mics, and consistent volume leveling. Before that, there were usually audio problems that we blindly tolerated because we had no idea the show would survive this long. Maybe someday we'll do a "best of the first 40," but you don't need to hear the whole thing, unedited.
Episode 40 is the first episode we don't have to apologize for. Much. So it's the first episode you'll be hearing after this. I hope you enjoy. We put a lot of work into it. Tell your friends. Subscribe on iTunes when that feature becomes available.
