We know we say it all the time, but this really is a very special episode. And no, it’s not hyperbole: This is our 100th episode of The Vibe of the Tribe!

We’re excited to celebrate with an interview with Josh Gondelman, an award-winning television writer, comedian, author and podcast host—and a mensch after our own hearts.

A Stoneham native and Brandeis University alum, Gondelman is a writer for Showtime’s late-night hit “Desus & Mero.” He has also won several awards, including four Emmys, for his work on “Last Week Tonight with John Oliver.” He hosts his own podcast called “Make My Day,” is a regular panelist on NPR’s “Wait Wait…Don’t Tell Me!,” penned two books and so much more.

Our wide-ranging conversation includes Gondelman’s childhood in the Boston ‘burbs, his undying love for the Beastie Boys, behind-the-scenes moments from his shows and how to stay positive during apocalyptic times.

This milestone episode—coming at a difficult time for our country and our communities—managed to lift us up and give us some much-needed laughs. We hope it does the same for you!

Here’s to our next 100 episodes!

Edited by Jesse Ulrich, with music by Ryan J. Sullivan.
