RedPubPod #011 Mary Jo Pehl

Welcome to the Redhawk Publication’s podcast, REDPUBPOD!

Redhawk Publications is honored to have as their guest on this episode author/performer, Mary Jo Pehl. You might know her from her stand-up, comedic writing, or her lengthy work with Mystery Science Theater 3000, but we just know her as the kind, bright author of a funny and touching memoir, Dumb, Dumb, Dumb: My Mother’s Book Reviews. 

Mary Jo shares with us her background growing up in Minnesota, insight into growing up as a creative in a Midwest backdrop (“Does the Job have Benefits?!””) and more thoughts on what makes the Twin Cities so creative!

Great show with lots of laughs!
