Episode notes

Comedian and writer Josh Gondelman is a pep-talk enthusiast and famously upbeat guy, with a solid career and a happy home life. Not one of these traits does he share with Llewyn Davis (Oscar Isaac), from the Coen Brothers’ 2013 film INSIDE LLEWYN DAVIS. And yet, when he saw it in the theater, Josh felt so seen by Llewyn — and not in a good way — that he couldn’t watch the movie again for a decade. Which brings us to now, when he tells us why!

Then, Jordan has one quick thing about the brand new movie your dad might be texting you about.

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.
