Episode 19

You Can’t Sleep Over at Dan Donohue’s

Something weird is in the air... a fly sneaks into the studio behind Dan Donohoe and we try to kill one of them. He and Lara offer the best excuses for missing out on work, how to know when you're following someone else’s dream, explain how the worst things in life can be the best thing for a comedian, and why ferrets are illegal in some states. We also learn a younger Dan failed to save his parents' marriage and Lara survived a panic attack on a plane. Dan says men can’t handle heightened emotions and Lara believes men mess with women’s emotions. Dan regrets the name of his podcast, "Danswers," and he dedicates this episode to the "filthy babies" out there.
