The Host

Dave Holmes is an editor-at-large for, and his memoir Party Of One is out now. He was a VJ on MTV back around the turn of the millennium. Kids, go ask an old person what that sentence means.

Mike Doughty’s most recent albums include Stellar Motel and The Heart Watches While the Brain Burns. He led the 90s band Soul Coughing. A memoir, I Die Each Time I Hear the Sound, will be released by Da Capo/Hachette in summer 2018.





The castmates reflect; Dave and Mike reflect in turn. The season-ender was shot on May 18, 1992, and clearly nobody on the cast thought anyone would watch it. Final shot: the aquarium. The premiere aired on May 21, and a television epoch began.
