8 things the Fast Company community is loving this month.

"The Doughboys is basically two comedy writers eating at chain restaurants and rating them, but it’s so much more. They savage each other without sounding like jerks. Also, they’re really funny." –Jesse Thorn, owner, Maximum Fun; Fast Company MCP
