The Garry Shandling episode of "Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee" is great, including plenty of talk about Garry's health (there's a kvetch-o-meter) and eventual demise – he wanted a boxing referee to do a 10 count but stop it at five and say 'he's not getting up.'

Very late to the game on this but President +Barack Obama's appearance on the WTF podcast with Marc Maron last year is incredibly revealing in many ways, most acutely in the 25-35 min. mark, looking at how slowly change occurs in a democracy. His thinking is so historically adept and out of step with our poll-frenzied, daily freak-outs. "Hawaii in the mind," indeed. +Michael Hraba +Heidi Kotansky
