The podcast features performances from each week's live show, as well as selections from our archives. Past performers have included Sarah Haskins (Infomania's "Target Women"), Paul Brittain (new SNL cast member), Michael Phillips (At the Movies with Ebert & Roeper), Michael Patrick Thornton (ABC's The Practice) and Nathan Rabin (The Onion AV Club). The Paper Machete's live show and podcast are produced by Christopher Piatt and Ali Weiss.
