Mimi Pond, nat Faxon, and Werner Herzog . . . Bullseye

Mimi_Pond.jpg

Mimi Pond was an art school dropout in 1970s Oakland, and she was trying to figure out what to be. She walked into a diner and asked for a job application. Instead of a resume, the manager asked her to tell him a joke. She got the job. Her new graphic novel and fictionalized memoir, Over Easy, is based on her time waiting tables at said diner.  Hear Mimi Pond, actor Nat Faxon, and filmmaker Werner Herzog on this week's Bullseye with Jesse Thorn.  Sunday at 3pm.
