You can hear my next guest, Dan Soder, at night and sometimes in the morning on SiriusXM satellite radio. He co-hosts The Bonfire with Big Jay Oakerson Monday and Wednesday nights on Comedy Central Radio, and often sits in as the third mic in the morning on Opie with Jim Norton. Soder also co-stars as Mafee on the Showtime series, Billions, and will be featured in the upcoming movie Drunk Parents starring Salma Hayek and Alec Baldwin. Soder’s relationship with Comedy Central extends past radio to online and TV, where he appears in sketches on Inside Amy Schumer, stars in the webseries, Used People, and presents his first hourlong stand-up special, Not Special, this weekend. Dan and I also are neighbors, and he kindly invited me into his home to tell me all about how he’s gotten this far.

So let’s get to it!
