Good One: A Podcast About Jokes

Good One: A Podcast About Jokes is a podcast about - well - jokes, and the people who tell them. Each week, a comedian will play one of their jokes and then break it down with Senior Editor Jesse David Fox.


episode 130: Kate McKinnon's Close Encounters

This week, Good One is graced with Saturday Night Live royalty: Kate McKinnon! Famous for her kooky characters and spot on impressions, Kate recently said goodbye to SNL after 11 memorable seasons. She joined host Jesse David Fox to talk about her incredible run; together they go over her repertoire of characters (including a deep dive on the Close Encounters sketches' Colleen Rafferty), Kate tells a silly story about sharing an office with Aidy Bryant, and she tells us what it was like break the news of her exit to SNL creator Lorne Michaels. We laughed, we cried, and we think you will, too.

Watch every Close Encounter sketch here and here.
