The Guests


Tig Notaro


Tig Notaro blew people's minds when she performed a set in L.A. last year and talked about her cancer and other troubles. Top-touring comedian Louis C.K. called it "masterful." Tig is known for her Professor Blastoff podcast and her role on Comedy Central's The Sarah Silverman Program. She has been a guest on This American Life, and later this year, she'll be in the film In a World.


Kathleen Edwards


Kathleen Edwards is a Canadian singer-songwriter whose Americana-tinged rock and folk songs are full of wit and compelling storytelling. Her debut full-length, Failer, was recorded in 2001 and garnered rave reviews. In 2012, Kathleen collaborated with Justin Vernon of Bon Iver on the album Voyageur, which climbed the charts in the U.S. and Canada.
