Podcast: Terrified with Dave Ross. Episode 33: Clare O’Kane (#Native). Download Link: Here. iTunes: Here. Official Link: Here.

Clare O’Kane is a comedian in Los Angeles and a good friend of Dave’s.  They talk failure, and comedy, and success, and success in comedy and failure in comedy.  They both feel like failures and they are both WRONG.  (Only Clare is wrong.)
