Episode notes

New Yorker cartoonist and writer for The Late Show with Stephen Colbert, Asher Perlman, related to Charlie Kaufman’s self-deprecating self-portrait in Spike Jonze’s 2002 film Adaptation – a movie we discussed here in one of our earliest episodes, with author Susan Orlean. As he’s grown up — both as a person and a creative — has he gotten more in touch with his inner Donald, Charlie’s (fully fictional) identical twin brother?

This, and Jordan’s take on Furiosa: A Mad Max Saga!

Well, This is Me is available for preorder and will be released on June 18, 2024

About the show

On Feeling Seen, writer and general enthusiast Jordan Crucchiola invites filmmakers, writers, comedians, and artists to discuss the movie characters that made them “feel seen.” It’s about that instant when a person connects to a piece of art so deeply that they see themselves reflected in it. Every week Jordan gabs it up with a guest about those magical moments when they were watching a film and realized, “That’s me!” It’s an informative, funny, and comforting show about our intimate relationship with movies, the impact they have on our lives, and how they influence our art.
