Episode notes

We’re celebrating our First Birthday with the one and only Paul Feig, writer/director/producer behind stuff like FREAKS AND GEEKS, BRIDESMAIDS, SPY, THE HEAT, A SIMPLE FAVOR, and lots more stuff. Starting off with his deep identification with the singularly obsessed Roy Neary (Richard Dreyfuss) in CLOSE ENCOUNTERS OF THE THIRD KIND, Paul shares stories of his childhood as a sci-fi loving movie nerd, his adulthood as a newly minted horror fan, and a bunch of stuff in between.

Paul’s latest is The School for Good and Evil, streaming on Netflix right now.

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.
