​I used to do the typical comedian podcast ​like everybody else but then I realized that all of the great conversations I've ever had involved family, friends, and food! Somehow sharing a table together opens up memories of times unlike anything else. So now, I'm launching Breaking Bread with Tom Papa. A mix of all the things I love great guests, comedy, food, and wine. Join us for episodes every Tuesday!
