Dr. Demento was arguably the most famous comedy radio host…that is, until Scott Aukerman joined the business! The key to Demento's success was one Mr. 'Weird Al' Yankovic, who Scott steals away to bring himself fame. On this episode they discuss Al's success and music and are joined by celebrated author Richard Dalton and winner of the Indie 103.1 Unknown Comic Contest Jim Pipe.

Paul Scheer should have a character in every episode.

Paul Scheer was great on this, loved his kidnapping-story. Interesting stuff about Yankovic. Overall a nice episode with a lot of fandom towards Weird Al coming from Paul and Scott.
