The Longest Shortest Time

EPISODE #129: Casey Wilson, Jessi Klein and a Dinosaur Dick-Punching a Bear

Actress and comedian Casey Wilson is guest hosting this week! Remember her? She was in episode 98, talking about becoming a mom after her own mom passed away.

Well, Casey’s back! And she brought along her friend — comedian and writer Jessi Klein. Jessi’s hilarious book of personal essays, You’ll Grow Out Of It, just came out in paperback.

Jessi has also written for Wait, Wait, Don’t Tell Me!, Saturday Night Live, and Inside Amy Schumer, where she won an Emmy for her work on segments like this:

Casey and Jessi met years ago as improv comedians. Casey was actually insanely jealous of Jessi — you’ll hear why in the show. But now, they’re buds. And now their toddler sons are BFFs.

Tune in as Casey asks Jessi all the big, deep questions she’s been dying to ask but never had time for in real life. Plus, they talk about the, um, pleasures of baby boy apparel! Hint:
