Join comedian and New Yorker cartoonist Emily Flake and guest hosts Jason Chatfield and Kat Burdick as they talk to the funniest and most interesting people around about what messed up things go through their heads at night. They’ll poke around looking for deeper meaning behind that dream where you’re still in high school somehow even though you know you graduated years ago and oh god, you’ve been blowing off first period all semester – and then Emily will present each guest with artwork based on their worst nightmare, suitable for framing or ritual burning!
