Episode notes

The creative force behind the documentary ‘The Problem with Apu,’ comedian Hari Kondabolu, is on the show this week. Hari discusses a composite of media in which he saw parts of himself in growing up, but never the full picture. Here are just a few of the titles mentioned – Harold & Kumar, Office Space, the comedian Stewart Lee, and the BBC show Goodness Gracious Me. But that only scratches the surface. Plus, at the end of the program, Jordan elaborates on the need for better video game movies like ‘Resident Evil: Welcome to Raccoon City.’

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.
