Tom Scharpling is ending The Best Show on WFMU after 13 years on the air. It will be missed — the show is typically one of the highlights of my week.

I recently had the pleasure of reading a short story at the 100th episode of LIVE at the Writers House. That episode was recorded at Kelly Writers House in West Philadelphia, then aired on WXPN.

It’s now available at the link above for your streaming and/or downloading pleasure. Enjoy!

Nathan Rabin interviews Tom Scharpling and Jon Wurster for The AV Club, asking them to talk about their three favorite episodes of Best Show Gems:

Because there will be these moments where we’re talking about calls, and we will start laughing, and then say, “That’s maybe the dumbest thing I’ve ever heard.” That’s the highest praise, in a way. Where it’s like, “Can you believe we might have thought of the dumbest idea yet on this phone call? We just created something so stupid.” [Laughs.] There’s a new level of stupid out there now that we just gave birth to.

Best Show Gems is a “best of” podcast for The Best Show on WFMU.  Best Show Gems is a great place to start with the Best Show if you’re not already a listener.
