I have a shameless plug to make. My first interview for The Society Page’s podcast, Office Hours hit the airwaves today (subscribe on iTunes). Dr. Peter McGraw and Joel Warner were kind enough to chat with me at Portland’s Bridgetown Comedy Festival on their new book, The Humor Code. We talked (and laughed) about Benign Violation Theory and their travels around the world in search of what makes things funny (listen here).
Peter McGraw (@PeterMcGraw) is a marketing and psychology professor at the University of Colorado Boulder and founder of the Humor Research Lab (aka HuRL). Joel Warner (@joelmwarner) is a journalist, writing for many prominent publications including Wired, The Boston Globe, and Slate.
