Sunday Brunch: A Conversation With Lindsey Wojcik and the Week’s Top Posts

Writer’s Bone’s Sunday Brunch features fresh commentary or interviews, jazz recommendations, and a roundup of the week’s top posts. We encourage you to enjoy this post on a weekly basis with a mouthful of omelet and home fries, as well as an unhealthy amount of the aforementioned mimosas, Bloody Marys, or bellinis.

Podcasts for Dessert

Writer’s Bone got a whole lot funnier this week with our podcasts featuring Broken Lizard’s Steve Lemme and Kevin Heffernan and Bryan Johnson from AMC’s “Comic Book Men.”

The Writer’s Bone crew went to see Lemme and Heffernan’s show at Laugh Boston on Oct. 10 and are happy to report the two aren’t any funnier than Sean Tuohy after a few drinks (we’re kidding, they were great!).
