Judge John Hodgman Episode 187: Cease and De-Thrift

| 14 comments

Alex brings the case against his wife, Mandy. Alex prefers to buy clothes secondhand, and will buy any item that fits his needs. He recently bought a pair of secondhand sneakers and wears them as his "strolling shoes". Mandy thinks they are "grandpa shoes" and says Alex needs to think more about his personal image when purchasing clothing. Who's right? Who's wrong?

Thanks to David Hobson for suggesting this week's amazing case name! And thanks to Julian Burrell for engineering this week's episode.

WHERE CAN I SEE JUDGE HODGMAN IN REAL LIFE?

I've got more than one answer for you. You can go see his remaining 2014 tourdates in Alexandria, Virginia on December 15 & 16. You can also buy your tickets for next year's MaxFunCon, a weekend of creativity and comedy in the woods of Lake Arrowhead, California. At the time of this writing, we're more than 80% sold out -- so if you want to come, now's the time to buy your ticket.

Bob Odenkirk: Cult-Comedy Icon, Reluctant Celebrity

Millions of Breaking Bad fans know Bob Odenkirk as sleazy criminal lawyer, Saul Goodman. He’ll be reprising the role in February in the spin-off show Better Call Saul.

But comedy fans already knew about Odenkirk from another show -- Mr. Show with Bob and David. Odenkirk’s outrageous and profanity-ridden outbursts were a staple of his performances and helped make him a cult-comedy icon.

Before that he wrote for Saturday Night Live. Perhaps his most notable work was co-writing the sketch Down by the River The bit featured a 35-year-old divorcee motivational speaker played by Chris Farley and is considered one of the best sketches in the history of the SNL.

When Mr. Show ended, Odenkirk appeared in a number of one-off roles for TV before working behind the camera. He directed Let’s Go to Prison, Melvin Goes to Dinner and The Brothers Solomon. Even though he loves directing, it’ll be a while before he decides to gives it another shot. He’ll explain.

Odenkirk talks to us about why writing timeless humor is so difficult, transitioning from comedy to drama and why he still doesn’t consider himself a celebrity.

Odenkirk will also read a selection from his new collection of short-fiction humor. It’s called A Load of Hooey and is available now.

Odenkirk also just released his debut stand-up comedy special, Amateur Hour. We'll be showcasing a clip from it in our Best Comedy of 2014 Special at the end of the year.

Cannonball: Touring Parliament's Mothership Connection with Rickey Vincent

Every so often we like to take a closer look at albums that should be considered classics, to find out what makes them great. It's Cannonball.

This week we're joined by author, historian and self-described funkateer, Rickey Vincent. He's going to talk about Parliament's landmark R&B album, Mothership Connection. The album is at once a celebration of the past and a glimpse into the future. It touches on a lot traditional soul ideas, but delivered with a new funky edge. Vincent will explain more.

Vincent has a new book out. It's called PARTY MUSIC: The Inside Story of the Black Panthers Band and How Black Power Transformed Soul Music. You can also hear his radio show The History of Funk on KPFA.
