Jason Sims Puts You In Your Place is a series of conversations with creative people about how the places in their lives effect them and their work.
In this episode Jason talks to writer, comedian and broadcasting legend Tom Scharpling.
For 12 years Tom has been the host of the three hours of mirth, music and mayhem that make up the free form radio juggernaut The Best Show On WFMU as well as contributing, writing and producing on a number successful television programs such as Monk and Tom Goes To The Mayor.
Recently Tom has added the job title ‘Director’ to his CV in the form of a long string of really entertaining video clips for artists like John Hodgman, Aimee Mann, Ted Leo and Real Estate with his collaborators at PCP LLC.
Also an enormous music fan and buff, the Low Times podcast, created with friends Daniel Ralston and Maggie Serota, has sideswiped the podcast industry by taking online music journalism to the next level.
