This episode of An Hour With Your Ex is about The Jinx, Serial, and the rise of true crime as entertainment. How true is true crime? Why are we so fascinated by convicting people over the course of 6-8 weeks? What was the deal with Jarecki? When will the public turn on you? When will they turn on us?

Friend and Chicago film maker Aaron Amendola and the folks at VStheUniverse asked me to film a sketch for them. Aaron wrote, sings, and performs in the video as Luigi. A ton of folks came out to Stage 773 in Chicago to help out and play in the crowd. This was a pleasure to shoot and Aaron did a great job with the edit.
This was fun. Colt and Marty let me film a sketch they wrote and star in. I edited as well. Mike Malarky did the score. Dan Myzinger helped us out. Read a profile of Colt Cabana in Rolling Stone where the video is featured. Thanks to Colt for helping me sneak into Rolling Stone.
