Things have changed. Like, we wanted to stay "Podcast Humble" for as long as possible, but when you're fielding as many A-List phone convos as we have over the past few days, it's tough to stay true to your roots.
Suggested talking points: Phone Calls With Celebs, My Hairy Friend, Game Jail, Clean Plate Club, Noodleboy, Hot Cereal, Busting a Nut
Nick Adams joins Jordan and Jesse for a discussion of the paradox of local radio personalities, the subtle differences between David Puddy and Patrick Warburton impressions and the magic of character actors who do one thing really really well.
[r] Zach Galifianakis is an actor, writer and stand-up comedian whose humor isn’t for everyone. His comedic observations and characterizations in television and film have made him a unique voice that some people love and others love to hate.
Galifianakis is probably best known for his roles in The Hangover films and in the Between Two Ferns web series. But he's also been in a lot more, from Up in the Air, to Birdman to Bored to Death. He's now the star and co-creator of the FX series, Baskets, currently in its second season. In the show, he plays a clown who can't keep up with the tuition or his classmates at his French clowning school, and returns to his hometown of Bakersfield, California to work in a rodeo.
Galifianakis sat down with Jesse to talk about creating a show that revolves around a mean and unlikeable character, how he contended with the sudden fame that came with The Hangover and what it’s like be dissed on public radio.
Baskets airs on Thursday nights at 10 pm on FX.
Michael K. Williams is an actor and dancer who broke out in the role of Omar Little on HBO’s The Wire. His characterization of a criminal “with a code” made the show a favorite among critics and viewers, one of whom was President Obama.
He was a club kid turned professional dancer, and later turned to acting. His resume includes everything from Boardwalk Empire to Twelve Years a Slave to Inherent Vice. He currently co-stars in the new Sundance TV series, Hap and Leonard, which begins its second season in March.
Williams sat down with us to talk about his memories of being a New York club kid, the difference that playing Omar made in his life and others and the opportunity that led him to realize that being a performer could be a career, rather than just a job.
The second season of Hap and Leonard begins airing on March 15.
Jesse remembers the poignancy of the late rapper Poetic, who detailed his harrowing fight with cancer in one of his final songs.
This week on One Bad Mother, while Theresa is out on family leave, Biz is joined by her husband Stefan Lawrence to talk about the language of love. Or maybe its the language of Swedish and the love part comes from staying married while one parent speaks only English and the other only Swedish to the kids. Does it get frustrating? Does it take patience? Does it take commitment? Yes…and Stefan finds it challenging too. Plus Stefan Hotdogs the intro and Biz wants to was on down the road that takes her away from the school talent show.
