Paul Bae Pt. 2 (From High School Teacher to a TV Series Based On His Life)

In the second part of my conversation with writer and comedian Paul Bae, we’ll discuss the secret to becoming a great high school teacher, and the upcoming Amazon series based on his life, which will star a pretty memorable TV teacher Señor Chang aka Ken Jeong.
We’ll also talk about his successful podcast career, how after one became a 54 million download sensation, and another an acclaimed anthology series, led him down a path of success in writing, podcasting as well as lucrative offers from major TV Networks.

In this second half of my chat with Writer/Comedian/Podcaster Paul Bae, we talk about his move from comedic TV Host back to working in the the education system, and how he discovered the secret to becoming a great high school teacher. Paul spoke about being flat broke and  supported by his financially savvy wife, to finding his way to his real passion, writing. Paul Bae will also discuss his highly successful podcast 'The Black Tapes', critically acclaimed anthology 'The Big Loop', and how these led him to working with Method Man on 'Marvels', being courted by Network Television, and producing and writing 'Shoot The Moon, a Dramedy' series based on his life, with Ken Jeong and Daniel Dae Kim. And finally, why Paul Bae dancing on Breakfast Television is linked to the death of Michael Jackson (Some good CLICKBAIT right there).
