In the latest Have You Heard This podcast, Aaron is joined by comedian Pete Kuempel for a discussion about Pete’s memoir-in-progress about a tumultuous relationship and its aftermath. The two best friends get deep and discuss writing about their insecurities and other strong feelings while trying to remain funny, relatable, and not coming off like big ol’ crybabies.
In the bonus episode, available now on Patreon, Aaron breaks the news to Pete that he’s going to have to break up with him as his best friend before Pete’s 50th birthday. Pete takes it surprisingly well. Support the show for as little as $5/month and get weekly bonus episodes and more!
