Silverman occasionally writes and produces satirical comedy sketches for ATC, bringing in talented independent writers and actors to create material for the program. He has brought NPR listeners Patty Marx, Bruce Kluger and David Slavin, Brian McConnachie, Harry Shearer, Tony Hendra, and many others.
He is also a producer of long-form radio documentaries, and works with All Things Considered hosts in the field. He has not had any unwarranted outbursts since the late 1990s.
