Episode 152: Andrew McMahon


Andrew McMahon In The Wilderness’ namesake came by to discuss his battle with cancer this week with fellow survivor and guest host Vanessa Bayer. Although they had the disease at different ages, there are many parallels with their struggle from their ability to use it as motivation to making them realize that laughter can help even during the seemingly darkest times. But don’t worry, we also find time to discuss our shared love for “guilty pleasures” such as Phil Collins and Bruce Hornsby, what drove McMahon to practice piano for hours a day when he was a teenager (to the chagrin of his siblings) and, maybe most importantly, what it was like for Jonah to have his very first Cappuccino alongside his sister at Lilith Fair.
