Kliph Nesteroff comes by Danny’s place to talk word origins, comic origins, podcast origins and why he writes about history but should not be thought of as a historian. Kliph requested that his philosopher be Bertand Russell and the two discuss Russell’s views on “First cause”, Religion and race.

Also Kliph does a pretty pretty pretty decent Larry David impression at some point in the show that he credits Danny for originally conjuring up in him.
