When ShowbizMonkeys.com gets a chance to interview someone cool, but it's not part of one of our other featured podcasts, then it falls to our long-running (and always insecure) Kinda Sorta Maybe Like a Podcast. With no discernible format, we do get to talk to some really awesome folks, including comedians, musicians, actors, filmmakers, and more.

Often hosted by Paul Little, other contributors include J.D. Renaud, Mark McLeod, and Tim Gray.
