Nick Offerman Nerds Out on Wilco, Mouse Rat, and They Might Be Giants: "They're kind of my first obsession."

Nick Offerman

Nick Offerman joins Kyle Meredith to discuss his latest stand-up tour, All Rise, which finds the humorist widening the scope of our current political era to encompass the follies of all humankind. We hear about Nick's ties to Kentucky farming through his friendship with author/poet Wendell Berry, who's 2017 documentary Look & See was produced by Offerman, the process of teaming up with wife Megan Mullally to direct the latest stage show, and his musical collaborations with Mark Rivers (of Mouse Rat, for you Parks and Rec fans) and Wilco's Jeff Tweedy. In fact, Nick and Kyle wax deep on the joys of Wilco as well as They Might Be Giants, who's video for "The Greatest" features Offerman in a starring role.

Listen to the interview above and then check out the video below.

Kyle is the WFPK Music Director. Email Kyle at kmeredith@lpm.org
