Consider this the bye week for the podcast, but that doesn't mean we don't bring you an incredible episode.  It just means we will deviate from the format of the first 29 episodes, but bring you a very special conversation between two friends. Jamie Flam and Sean Aronson have known each other for more than 20 years, dating back to their days at Granada Hills High School.  Jamie was the inspiration for this podcast (go back to Episode 1 and listen to Sean discuss how influential Jamie was in the process).  In this episode you will learn about both these guys and how they got to where they are. Learn more about Sean, and his route to St. Paul, and find out how Jamie handles the egos of big time comics, how he became the booker for the Hollywood Improv and which new SNL cast member he gave time to on the stage at the Improv that helped her career.  This is a crossover episode of The Voice Behind the Voice and Jamie's podcast, The Gatekeeper.  Subscribe to the podcast on iTunes and be sure to follow us on Twitter at @TheVoiceBTV and like us on Facebook at Facebook.com/TheVoiceBTV.  You can also find the podcast at 1500ESPN.com and at PodcastOne under the Society & Culture tab.
