Episode 186: Bill Persky

  Does a sense of humor make you a better person? Bill Persky thinks it might, and he should know. He wrote for the Dick Van Dyke Show, co-created That Girl for Marlo Thomas, and directed 100 episodes of Kate and Allie. He says this about the president: “Nobody’s ever seen him laugh. He sneers, he smiles, he does that face. God, I hope they don’t make a stamp out of him.” Comedy and morality, plus music from John Sherman, Tim Speilios, and Mark Deffenbaugh at the Writers Guild of America East.
