A Conversation With Michael Ian Black

Monkeys Fighting Robots kicks off the second season of our podcast with Michael Ian Black.

The comedian, writer, and actor stopped by to talk about his new book – Navel Gazing – True Tales Of Bodies, Mostly Mine (but also my mom’s, which I know sounds weird).

Black delivers a frank and funny memoir about confronting his genetic legacy as he hits his forties.

On the second half of the show, we discuss the Darth Vader is Supreme Leader Snoke rumors.

Navel Gazing – True Tales Of Bodies, Mostly Mine (but also my mom’s, which I know sounds weird) is available now.
