Funemployment Radio
Greg Nibler and Sarah X Dylan's Podcast. Intelligent conversations about ridiculous situations. Based out of Portland, Oregon, both are former Commercial Broadcasters, who decided to break off and do it on their own. They have been sharing their lives and amazing guests, 5 days a week, since 2009.

An opportunity has arisen for Greg, from his work with The Manual that involves Indy Cars, a sports legend, and a potentially awkward interview, given Greg's complete lack of understanding about what he's talking about. Sarah attempts to help.
