The JV Club with Janet Varney

GUYS, MARK MCCONVILLE (Superego, Pistol Shrimps) WAS THE FIRST PERSON TO SIT ON JANET’S NEW COUCH. That’s a big deal! But sure, yes, lots of other things happen on episode 202 as Boys of Summer motors along, including talk of Mark’s parents finished basement (hello ladies!), his “meh” hockey career, and of course, his gorgeous mullet.

Boys of Summer 2016 hums along with considerably more relaxed ease than you’d feel if you had to drive a double-decker, British-steering-wheel-on-the-right-side bus through Savannah with Clint Eastwood counting on you. Luckily if you’re Gary Anthony Williams (Boondocks, Rick & Morty), you navigate everything with grace, humor, and killer improv chops.

It’s time to get the band back together. Or find yourself in a new band every week, if you’re Boys of Summer guest comedian, author, and This American Life contributor Dave Hill (new book! Dave Hill Doesn’t Live Here Anymore). Celebrate hearty loves of multi-genre guitar shreds, the class act that is Dick Cavett, and making the stuff YOU like instead of trying to conform.

Get ready to hurl that pristine-white toilet paper roll over a nearby tree, because it’s wonderful Boy of Summer Matt Gourley’s (Superego) time to shine in all his most-of-high-school 5-foot glory. Hear about Matt’s command of Spanish curse words, love of cookies, and the house that haunts him to this day… every time he gets a haircut.
