Comedian, actor, and all-around great guy River Butcher joins Jordan to dig into the ways he saw himself in Back to the Future‘s Marty McFly (and in Marty’s dad, George McFly), which he first saw at the tender age of four.
How did Marty’s cool skateboarding — and also his awkwardness with Young Lorraine Baines — strike a chord with a kid figuring out their place in the world? All this and more, plus Jordan’s deepest hopes and dreams for the teens of Euphoria, on this week’s episode.

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.
