The Faucet with Myq Kaplan

Comedian Myq (Mike) Kaplan is The Faucet. Except instead of water like from a literal faucet, what comes out are words, thoughts, ideas, jokes, rhymes, philosophies, fun, and more, in a stream of consciousness. A stream. Like water. See? Like this.


152: Questions From a Seven-Year-Old Future Astronaut/Comedian
In today's pod-meal, we dig into some questions that a friend's child has asked! She is funny and creative and makes jokes and wants to be a comedian/astronaut later in life (or maybe right now) and so her mom asked me if I'd answer some questions about comedy (and space). I do, and also my wonderful girlfriend Rini answers some as well. We all have a fun time and I hope you enjoy! Much love!
