The Comedian's Comedian Podcast with Stuart Goldsmith: Episode 184 - Barry Crimmins

Legendary comic Barry Crimmins kickstarted Boston's comedy scene in the 1980s, testified to the Senate against AOL.com profiteering from child pornography, and is to this day both a political firebrand and an intensely kind man. We talk about his new special Whatever Threatens You, released this week by Louis CK; political comedy and being your own trusted source; and Barry also acknowledges the personal cost of a life of activism.
