Episode 53: Turning A Dead End Into A U-turn With Jensen Karp Of Kanye West Owes Me Three Hundred Dollars
So, I wasn’t supposed to bring you another pod this month buuuuttt to celebrate the OPP cookbook shoot, I’m doing it. Your support really helped make this book happen, and I wanted to give you a little something in return. And this little something is pretty special, because Jensen Karp is this week’s guest. Jensen is a writer, comedian, and old friend who once had an intervention with me about wearing fewer capes (and by fewer, I mean none).
Jensen and I talk about his million-dollar rap-record deal, how he dealt with that record never being released, the health scare that inspired him to write his new book (Kanye West Owes Me Three Hundred Dollars: And Other True Stories Of A White Rapper Who Almost Made It Big), and why he believes that when you hit a dead end there’s always a U-turn.
