Greg does the podcast from New York this week with comedian Brian Regan. Brian talks a little about his family life, and his very regimented work schedule. Greg and Brian are much more comfortable with self effacing stories compared with stories where that person is the hero, which leads to how “Overheards” was created. They talk about how quickly they’ll judge a tv show that effort, time and money has been poured into, but stick with any porn almost instantly. They talk about dealing with comedy crowds, and trying to do one better than the crowd. Greg wraps up the podcast by announcing that his book, Dear Mrs. Fitzsimmons, is out.

Chris Hardwick shares the secrets of being a geek who is a winner and explains how to organize your life so you too can be a successful geek.
