Can't Miss: Good for the Jews


And that is it for this edition of THE BRYANT PARK PROJECT for this December 5th, 2007.


And today we say goodbye to beloved producer Ilya Marritz. He came to us by way of ALL THINGS CONSIDERED, and…

STEWART: He's walking by, gives a little wave.

BURBANK: …suddenly, come on in here, Il-man(ph). He came to us by way of ALL THINGS CONSIDERED in WNYC Public Radio.

Ilya, we're going to miss your open-collared shirts, your Orlando Bloom, but much hotter face, your utter lack of awareness of any pop culture event that has ever happened ever. Mostly, though, we're going to miss your amazing smarts, your good nature under the most stressful circumstances and the way you made every BPP episode way better through your work.

STEWART: Here, here!

BURBANK: I think I speak for everyone here at the BPP when I say, we are so screwed tomorrow.

(Soundbite of laughter)

BURBANK: Bye-bye, Ilya. Use some of your free time to buy a GD television.

(Soundbite of song, "Bye, bye, bye")

STEWART: Subscription of People.

BURBANK: Anything.

STEWART: Us Weekly. He's not going to say anything.

We'll miss you, Ilya. Thank you.

Thanks, everybody, for listening. Transcript provided by NPR, Copyright NPR.
