Audio: Novelist/David Letterman writer Bill Scheft talks tributes, plastic surgery and Jay Leno’s voicemail

Greatest podcast guest of all-time Bill Scheft returns to talk about putting together a tribute to his wife and comic extraordinaire Adrianne Tolsch, a phenomenal new documentary about plastic surgery and a voicemail he recently received from Jay Leno.

Other topics covered include the week The Late Show spent in London, former Johnny Carson producer Peter Lassally’s role in the Letterman organization and Chris Rock’s place on the Mt. Rushmore of stand-up comedy.

And for The Truants, no music this week past 1968.
