TV writer and podcaster Caleb Bacon is not only on the writing staff of Vince Vaughn’s TBS show Sullivan & Son and the host of the popular Man School podcast. He’s also a journalist, sound expert, former weightlifter, San Fernando Valley resident—and many other things you’ll discover when you listen to this episode. Oh! He’s seven years sober as well, after a drinking career that started when he made his first alcoholic concoction from his parents’ liquor cabinet in junior high and ended in a night that involved Special K, bus stop punching, nudity—and a 12-step call from his boss, NYPD Blue and Deadwood creator David Milch. In this episode, he and I discuss being low-achieving drunks, boozing in England, bottoming out in LA and why Disneyland sucks, among many other topics.
