Emmy-award winning comedy writer Rob Kutner stops by to talk about his latest production, a comedy album that "spans the past, present and future of America."

The cast features a wide and varied cast of characters from NPR's Nina Totenberg, who appears as more or less herself, in the distant future, providing a musical report from the Supreme Court, to Alex Trebeck, who joins a group of fellow Canadians in a strange paean to our northern neighbor.

It's called "2776," and it's set in the future during the nation's 1000th birthday.  The cast also includes Patton Oswalt and Margaret Cho.
