NPR's Fresh Air remembered Robert Schimmel today by replaying 14 minutes of the interview Terry Gross conducted with the late comedian in March 2008. There's something about hearing Gross ask Schimmel to describe merkins on NPR, and then hearing her giggle as he did so, that's comforting today.

NPR used to include embeds for their radio broadcasts, but no more? Hmmm. Listen to Fresh Air's remembrance of Robert Schimmel.
