Transcript 11/1/2020 - Joel McHale

#1 Post by BBTranscriptTeam » Wed Nov 11, 2020 2:13 pm

Joel McHale

Joel has a podcast and is the host of "Card Sharks". He formerly hosted "The Soup" and there was no audience for that show, either. They joked about Jimmy's weight. He's playing for Groundswell, out of NYC, bringing youth together to make public art for social change. They've done 253,000 square feet of art. Those in the program have gone on to college. The smartest person he knows is Brad Stevens, from Dayton, OH. He's one of Joel's dad's best friends. He was one of two choices, the other being his writing partner.
