This podcast was culled from a recent phone conversation between Xpress reporter Jake Frankel and Lizz Winstead, who co-created The Daily Show and is coming to town this weekend for a stand-up comedy performance and writing workshop. In the interview, Winstead talks about her Asheville events, the role of The Daily Show in popular political and media culture, what she thinks will happen in the upcoming midterm elections and much more.

    Fine interview. I think it’s awesome that Winstead is coming to AVL.

    One, albeit minor, thing.

    From El Wiki…

    A podcast (or non-streamed webcast) is a series of digital media files (either audio or video) that are released episodically and often downloaded through web syndication.

    Y’all have made great strides in becoming 2.0 savvy. Just thought I’d do my small part to help. I know it’s a nitpicky sort of thing, but it’s like mixing up ‘your’ & ‘you’re’ to a grammar nazi.
