    [Contains explicit content] Neil deGrasse Tyson is the most famous astrophysicist to ever tell a story to Eugene Mirman on a show called Hold On. He's also probably the most famous astrophysicist ever to tell a story to any Eugene for any reason, but it's the story he told THIS Eugene that you'll want to hear. In it, a pre-fame Neil weighs a potential graduate school job. If you were given as many guesses as there are stars in the universe, you probably couldn't guess what that job was!

    [Contains explicit content] Nick Thune doesn't go looking for fights, but fights seem to find him anyway. When they do, though, it's his inability to let some things slide that causes his momentary anger to boil over into small acts of passive-aggression: snarky rejoinders, anonymous notes, and the occasional sarcastic email. Find out which option Nick chose when confronted with an unprofessional doctor in his story live at SF Sketchfest for Porchlight, A Storytelling Series.
