Seph and Lex talk to the elusive humorist, novelist, editor, interviewer, and underground comedy writing legend Mike Sacks.
"If you don’t know who Mike Sacks is, well, you should. His writing is funnier than just about anyone’s..." - David Sedaris
Mike is the author of the comedy novels Stinker Lets Loose, Randy!, Passable In Pink, Slouchers, and Passing On The Right.
His books Stinker Lets Loose and Passable In Pink became Amazon Audible features with all-star casts including Jon Hamm, Andy Richter, Gillian Jacobs, Adam Scott, Rhea Seehorn, and Bob Odenkirk.
Stinker Lets Loose and Randy are being re-released in January 2023 by Simon & Schuster.
In this free-wheeling conversation, Seph and Lex learn about Mike's origin story and discuss everything from how he became an enemy (and hero) in the trucking industry, why he originally published anonymously, how he landed an amazing wife, and why he thinks cult leaders are comedy gurus.
Mike also discusses a special 1-800 number for the terminally ill. Then he gives one of the most inspiring pieces of writing advice ever given by anyone.
