Hall of Fame

This week, Amy and Richard induct Girl On Guy with Aisha Tyler into the Pillowfort Hall of Fame. We all know Aisha Tyler from her work on Friends, Talk Soup, The Talk, Archer and Whose Line is it anyway, but have you been listening to her podcast? On her show, Aisha interviews one interesting person and digs deep into their life, career, passions and even some embarrassing moments. Past guests include, Jesse Tyler Furgeson, Dan Savage, Tig Nataro, Ryan Styes, Joel McHale, Marc Maron, Henry Rollins, Wil Wheaton, Kristen Schaal, and Jesse Thorn.

If you are still not convinced, Chris Hardwick, comedian and host of The Talking Dead and The Nerdist, said  “Aisha Tyler’s brain moves faster than a shock spell from the hands of a lightning mage. She is hilarious, hyper-articulate, and will kick your ass in Call of Duty. She is the life of the LAN party.”

And Aisha’s book  ” Self-Inflicted Wounds: Heartwarming Tales of Epic Humiliation” is available now

Things we learned this week

Richard – Babbles on about Kanye and Beck, plus the notion of “breaking the seal”
