Super funny comedian Howard Kremer (@howardkremer on twitter, instagram & fb) from the podcast Who Charted (@whocharted on twitter and fb) was in town recently and was kind enough to sit down for an interview. He could not have been more gracious and cool and funny and he was very generous with his time! Please check him out if you are unfamiliar. I love this interview. It is one of my favorites, but of course as soon as we were done I thought of a million more things to ask. I hope I did the chartists right with this one. Enjoy!
