Episode notes

This one is for everybody working to strike that balance between caring for yourself and caring for your “family of origin.” A forgotten and surprisingly dramatic SNL spinoff directed by Harold Ramis in 1995, Stuart Saves His Family spoke to a younger Kevin Maher as an adult from a family where alcoholism was an issue. It even factors thematically into Kevin’s new humor book, Santa Doesn’t Need Your Helpillustrated by Joe Dator.

Then, Jordan has one quick thing about feeling uncomfortably seen by Banshees of Inisherin.


With Jordan Crucchiola and Kevin Maher

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.
