Wait didn't we do this movie before? Don't be ridiculous. That was Marmaduke (2010) this is Marmaduke (2022). How could you possibly have mixed that up? Anyway, this ain't your daddy's Marmaduke, provided you have a very young daddy (in the case of the previous film) or a very old daddy (who loves the comic). This is the animated one for Netflix, with Pete Davidson as the titular Duke of Marma. Does it make the previous one look like the Citizen Kane of Marmaduke films? Kinda!

[caption id="attachment_103937" align="alignnone" width="417"] (Photo: Rich Polk/Getty Images for IMDb)[/caption] Actor Aya Cash joins us on Bullseye for the latest installment of The Song That Changed My Life. It's a segment where creators we know and love talk about the music who made them who they are. Aya Cash has starred in a number of memorable roles, including Gretchen Cutler on the comedy series You're The Worst and Stormfront on the superhero show The Boys These days, she stars in the very funny sitcom Welcome to Flatch. The series is based on a British sitcom called This Country, and takes the faux documentary approach to TV comedy. It follows a film crew that heads to the fictional town of Flatch, Ohio to profile the residents and document daily life. The only thing is that the show is a comedy. So all of the characters are goofballs and weirdos, of course. One such weirdo is Cheryl who’s played by Aya. Cheryl is a reporter in Flatch who writes for The Flatch Patriot, the town’s only newspaper. When we asked Aya Cash about the song that changed her life, she took us back to her childhood. Back to the nineties when she was growing up in the San Francisco Bay Area, riding in the car with mom and dad listening to a classic song by Ani DiFranco. ]]>

Actor Noah Segan -- or, should we say, writer/director/producer/actor Noah Segan -- is the star and creative force behind his directorial debut, BLOOD RELATIVES. In it, he plays a century-old, lone-wolf vampire who suddenly has a teenage daughter to think about. Segan, a dad himself, chose another suddenly-a-father character for today's epsiode: H.I. McDonnough (Nicolas Cage) from the 1987 Coen Brothers comedy Raising Arizona. Listen and learn how fatherhood, creative genesis, vampirism, and work/life balance are all mixed into the space between these two films, made 35 years apart. Then, Jordan has one quick thing about an action movie really straddling that naughty/nice divide: Violent Night. *** With Jordan Crucchiola and Noah Segan Produced by Marissa Flaxbart Sr. Producer Laura Swisher]]>

This week jarrett and Tre’vell respond to listener questions and comments…but only after they describe every bite of food they savored for their Thanksgiving dinner. Skip this section if you’re feeling hungry. Plus, we asked listeners to tell us about Black, POC, queer and trans-owned businesses that they love for our ever-growing Holiday Gift Guide. We’ve included this week’s recommendations in our show notes, and ALL recommendations to date can be found on our Linktree page. Dis/Honorable Mentions jarrett HM: Love, Lizzo hm: The Freedmen’s Bureau  Hm: The Academy Museum’s Regeneration 1898-1971   Black History is Happening Every Day! Byron Perkins Makes History As First Out Football Player at HBCU   Mentioned in the Show   Listener Jen recommended  The Chochmat Nashim Podcast: Women Talk Judaism: What's Worse Than Antisemitism? (Season 6 Episode 2)   ​Shoshanna and Anne host guest Elisheva Rishon, a Black Jewish woman, who weighs in on the most recent spike in antisemitism, the knee-jerk reactions to it, what it means to be caught in the middle of both the Black and Jewish communities, and what we all can do about it.   FANTI Holiday Gift Guide Recommendations Linktree: @FANTI_HolidayGiftGuide   Meredith in Scotland recommends: I'm from the US, but I live in Edinburgh, Scotland, so these recs are Scotland-based.  I'm not sure how many of them ship worldwide, but would definitely be some good options for other UK-based listeners.  (I know I'm not the only one!)     Black-Owned Businesses:   Rafiki Coffee Delicious coffee!  Definitely recommend!   Matugga Rum   Theirs is my go-to spiced rum these days.  Love.  It.   Perf United I've loved their Go Bananas Babe Butter and Go Bananas Babe Bar, but my fave is their Sauce Pot Babe Butter.  Smooth and silky skin, yes please.   Queer-Owned Business:   Natalie J Wood Ceramics!  Beautiful bowls, vases, plates, clocks, and other things to beautify your home.  I've got like 7 or 8 pieces of hers and always want more even though I don't know where to put them.   Kari recommends: Kobi Co. I bought my niece in law a candle from Kobi Co. a Black owned women’s company from Minneapolis. They sell beautiful items that come with Spotify playlists.   Miiriya Also there’s an app called Miiriya. It’s a store front that sells items from black businesses and they also have a section for people in need that you can give to.    Mel in Australia: Trading Blak Australia has a violent and shameful history, since invasion, in how white Europeans (especially the British) have treated Aboriginal people. One of the ways this oppression has continued is in the appropriation of Aboriginal art by non-Aboriginal businesses. Non-Aboriginal people have profited significantly from commodifying Aboriginal art without working as equal partners with artists, without understanding the stories embedded in the art, and certainly without sharing profits fairly. Trading Blak is one attempt to redress this, and is self-determination in action.   Our Sponsor This Week   BetterHelp BetterHelp is customized online therapy that offers video, phone and even live chat sessions with your therapist, so you don’t have to see anyone on camera if you don’t want to.

I mean, even before you see the baked goods available at Depressed Cake Shop, the name alone is good for a laugh. Because what could be less depressing than a cake shop? And then you see the storm cloud cookies or the cupcakes with gray frosting and the joke gets even funnier. The world of depression? It can be pretty hilarious at times. Depressed Cake Shop isn’t fixed to one location, rather it’s a series of pop-up shops selling funny/bleak sweets to benefit local mental health charities. We speak with Valerie Van Galder, the CEO of the organization that helps make all the little shops possible. We also meet Sascha Biesi, co-owner of Skull and Cakebones, a bakery near Austin, Texas that has been hosting Depressed Cake Shops every May for years. And we get Sascha’s own story of a life struggling with depression, bipolar losses, and devastating grief. Both Sascha and Valerie also talk about the connection between mental illness, baking, art, and drawing people together. Go to DepressedCakeShop.org to learn more, get involved, and bear witness to the cakes!

[caption id="attachment_103703" align="alignnone" width="300"] (Photo by John Sciulli/Getty Images for Turner)[/caption] Occasionally, we like to ask some of our favorite creators about a work of art they wish they'd created. This time, our guest is Guy Branum. When we asked Guy about the thing he wishes he had made, he picked a movie: 2017's Lady Bird, a classic coming-of-age story set in the early 2000s and directed by Greta Gerwig. Guy is a comedian who's appeared on Last Comic Standing, hosted the TV show Talk Show the Game Show, wrote and produced for The Mindy Project, and much more. He most recently appeared on the big screen in Bros. For those unfamiliar, Bros is a romantic comedy written by Billy Eichner and Nicholas Stoller about a same sex relationship. It's one of the first such films to come out of a major studio, and the first major studio pictures of any kind to feature an all LGBTQ principal cast. The plot centers around Bobby, a bookish museum curator played by Eichner, and his relationship with Aaron - a… well, a bro. He plays pickup games in the park, has a rockin' bod, the whole 9 yards. Guy plays Henry, Bobby's best friend.  The movie is a lot of fun and a great watch for romantic comedy fans this holiday season. ]]>
Occasionally, we like to ask some of our favorite creators about a work of art they wish they'd created. This time, our guest is Guy Branum. When we asked Guy about the thing he wishes he had made, he picked a movie: 2017's Lady Bird, a classic coming-of-age story set in the early 2000s and directed by Greta Gerwig. Guy is a comedian who's appeared on Last Comic Standing, hosted the TV show Talk...

Episode 107: Emily Cutler (Fresh Off The Boat, AP Bio) Interview (Step Dave After Show) https://maximumfun.org/episodes/dead-pilots-society/episode-107-emily-cutler-fresh-off-the-boat-ap-bio-interview-step-dave-after-show/ Thu, 24 Nov 2022 14:30:50 +0000 https://maximumfun.org/?post_type=episode&p=103707 Dead Pilots Society Logo

Happy Thanksgiving to all of our Dead Pilots Society listeners! This week we caught up with Emily Cutler (Fresh off The Boat, AP Bio) the writer of Step Dave! Emily talks in depth about how the Step Dave format came to her. Also, Andrew will give you a brief education about what a format even is! Emily felt a special connection to the material because, like Annie in the pilot, her husband is 10 years younger than her. She told us about how she mined material from her own marriage to pitch and develop the show. Emily also discusses her early career transition from an actor to a writer and she shared with us her best practices for people wanting to staff. This is a really great episode with a brilliant writer. Enjoy it and thanks for listening!

(Photo: Kevin Ferguson) Sudan Archives has been making music for all her life. She grew up in Ohio, where she played violin in church and school bands. Her dad was a label guy, and he tried to make a pop duo out of Sudan and her twin sister, but it didn’t take. Sudan needed to do her own thing. To be an artist in her own right. When she got her high school diploma, she headed out to Los Angeles. She then started hanging out at a club called Low End Theory, home to beatmakers Flying Lotus, Daedalus and Nosaj Thing. It was there she found her voice as an artist. Sudan Archives is a violinist who breaks new ground with what the instrument can do in pop music. However, she's not just a violinist. Playing the violin is only one color she paints with, one arrow in her quiver. When combined with her voice, her beatmaking and her songwriting, Sudan Archives' music is mesmerizing. She recently released a new album called Natural Brown Prom Queen, which has been met with rave reviews. The album just came out this Fall and Sudan recorded it at home, during the COVID-19 pandemic. Sudan Archives joins Bullseye to talk about her music and new album Natural Brown Prom Queen. She also talks about her process for creating music and performing it live. Plus, Sudan dives into some of the violinists who inspire her. ]]>

For someone that you know loves MaxFun shows but you aren’t sure which ones:

Gift a membership! It’s easy–just go to maximumfun.org/join/#gift and follow the instructions there. You’ll make a simple, one-time payment. Then we’ll contact your recipient so they can pick which shows they want to support, and we’ll send them the bonus content that comes with a membership! We’ve also got a bunch of brand new MaxFun merch if you'd like something physical that you can wrap up in nice paper.

The Adventure Zone

The McElroys have a variety of great TAZ merch over here, but I am truly enamored with this Garyl tapestry. If the person you're shopping for partakes in tabletop roleplaying games themselves (or just needs somewhere classy to put grocery lists), then they'd love these TAZ notebooks.

Baby Geniuses

Get yourself a Baen Chunch shirt designed by Lisa Hanawalt! Lisa also has a shop full of beautiful prints if you want to brighten up your walls. And you can get some Emily Heller merch or her 2018 comedy album Pasta, the cover of which is a work of art on its own.

Beef and Dairy Network

If it's not a T-shirt that says Mitchell's, get back in the truck. If you've got the cash to spare you could always get your loved one the greatest car ever made, a 2009 Hyundai i10.

Bullseye with Jesse Thorn

If you want to really impress the Bullseye listener in your life, get them the perfect find from the selection of Jesse’s Picks in his vintage shop Put This On.

Comfort Creatures

Psychedelically Tripping Out For Your Mental Health https://maximumfun.org/episodes/depresh-mode/psychedelically-tripping-out-for-your-mental-health/ Mon, 21 Nov 2022 10:00:31 +0000 https://maximumfun.org/?post_type=episode&p=103569

Granted, there have been people very high on the prospects of psychedelics for a long time as a means of achieving better mental health. But these folks didn’t appear in scientific and medical circles so much as they appeared in drum circles. Things are different now, with very promising research and results being reported on the ability of these drugs to kind of un-stick one’s mind and achieve a better state of mental health.

We talk with freelance reporter and researcher John Semley, who has been reporting on the gold rush among scientists and pharma companies to create and patent new drugs. We find out when these treatments might be available in clinical settings for the general public and when you can pick some up at your local Walgreen’s.

Don’t let the destruction of Twitter distract you from everything coming up– we’re ready to talk about it on a brand new episode of Tights and Fights! AEW still has a lot of uncertainty surrounding it, but Full Gear is still happening. Between MJF and The Elite returning, there’s hope that this PPV should end on a better note than the last one did. WWE is still working on folding Austin Theory, Seth Rollins, Mustafa Ali and Bobby Lashley into a compelling US Title scene, all with War Games in the background. Speaking of which, how optimistic are we that Mia Yim can succeed in her second act in WWE? Finally, it wouldn’t be the holidays without a convoluted match concept from NXT. Or rather, it would be… but not one that we’d want to face!

(Photo: Robin Marchant/Getty Images) Journalist and author Shea Serrano has covered basketball and pop culture for ESPN, XXL, Grantland, the Ringer and more. His path to a career as a writer was kind of unusual, however. Born and raised in Texas, Serrano originally worked as a teacher who'd find little moments to write in his spare time. It wasn't until his 30s that he went into writing full-time. He wrote his first book around this time, too: The Rap Yearbook is a New York Times bestseller and a critical favorite. When we first talked with Serrano in 2017, he'd just followed it up with Basketball and Other Things. Basketball and Other Things is kind of like a written version of a late night party discussion with friends - with cool illustrations. Serrano covers topics like "great basketball villains" and "which NBA players get remembered for the wrong reasons?" He also asks questions important to any basketball fan, like "Who's in The Disrespectful Dunk Hall of Fame?"  He's since followed up with Movies and Other Things - a similar book with movie rankings, hot takes and more ice breakers. This past month he expanded the illustrated series with another entry: Hip-Hop and Other Things. Like its predecessors, it's an illustrated collection of questions, rankings and thoughts designed to provoke deep discussion and maybe a few silly arguments.  A version of this interview originally aired in October of 2017.]]>

This week we're digging into the archives for a favorite from the past. Five years back into the archives, to be precise! Biz and Theresa talk about all the little things we hate that we hadn’t thought about in years….till our kids did them to us! Pool splashing, sparklers, being surprised…these aren’t phobias or life-threatening but they still bug the crap out of us! So, do we ban them or toughen up? What if we just try to explain rationally to a three-year-old that we’d like them to stop? Yep! That will work! Plus, Biz sees herself in Katy Belle and Theresa returns from the woods!

[caption id="attachment_103336" align="alignnone" width="448"] (Photo: Rich Fury / Getty Images)[/caption] Kareem Abdul-Jabbar is one of the greatest basketball players of all time: an NBA Hall of Famer, six-time MVP, 19-time All-Star, the master of the skyhook shot and a key part of the Showtime era Lakers. He grew up in New York City and was destined for basketball greatness. By the time he was in the eighth grade, he was pushing 7 feet tall and could already dunk a basketball. During his high school career, he scored a record number of points and led his team to three straight championships. He went on to play college ball at UCLA, and in 1969 he was drafted first overall to the Milwaukee Bucks. He played with them for six seasons, and in 1975 he was traded to the Los Angeles Lakers. He was a key part of the legendary Showtime-era Lakers alongside Magic Johnson. He spent 14 seasons in LA and retired from basketball in 1989 at age 42. Since retiring from basketball, Abdul-Jabbar has written books, columns and even worked as a writer for Veronica Mars. When we talked with Kareem Abdul-Jabbar last year, he'd just narrated a documentary: Fight the Power: The Movements That Changed America We'll revisit our conversation with the NBA legend. Kareem discusses playing alongside Magic Johnson, his roller disco days, and so much more. Plus, he shares why he was never able to play a game of Double Dutch as a kid A version of this interview originally aired in June of 2021. ]]>

Kristin Hersh Wanted to Play Magenta Chords https://maximumfun.org/episodes/depresh-mode/kristin-hersh-wanted-to-play-magenta-chords/ Mon, 14 Nov 2022 10:00:06 +0000 https://maximumfun.org/?post_type=episode&p=103289

Kristin Hersh is an acclaimed and accomplished musician and songwriter through her solo work and as part of the bands Throwing Muses and 50 Foot Wave. When Kristin Hersh was young, her father, Dude (that’s what everyone calls him), taught her some basic chords on the guitar. And that was fine but to Kristin, Dude was just showing her the red, blue, and green chords whereas she wanted to learn, like turquoise, burgundy, and magenta chords. Synesthesia has always been part of Kristin’s approach to music, she sees sound as color. Another more alarming aspect of her music was that for many years she didn’t really remember performing. She was mentally present between songs and all the rest of her day but when it came time to play the song, it was like someone else was doing it while Kristin just went... elsewhere. We talk about those phenomena as well as trauma, car accidents, babies, misdiagnosed bipolar disorder, and her journey of mental health discovery.

[caption id="attachment_103219" align="alignnone" width="479"] (Photo: Michael Moriatis/IFC)[/caption] Bashir Salahuddin is a comedy actor and writer. He attended Harvard where he met his friend and longtime collaborator Diallo Riddle. They worked together as writers on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon, before leaving to work on their own projects. One of their projects is South Side. It’s a very funny sitcom set in Chicago starring both Riddle and Salahuddin. It follows two friends on Chicago’s South Side seeking different business ventures while working at a rent-to-own shop. It also intertwines stories and subplots from other residents living in the neighborhood.  The other show they created is Sherman's Showcase. It’s sort of like a sketch show, but with a unique format. It's set up like a variety show with elements comparable to those you might find on Soul Train, The Muppet Show and even Laugh-In. Bashir stars as Sherman McDaniels, who's been hosting Sherman's Showcase for nearly forty years. Each episode looks back on some of the show's greatest hits including musical numbers, clips from Sherman's movie and TV work and more. Bashir Salahuddin stops by Bullseye to talk about Sherman’s Showcase, and shares how it draws inspiration from shows like Soul Train and The Muppet Show. He also talks about meeting his friend Diallo Riddle while in an acapella group at Harvard. Plus, Bashir shares how casting real Chicagoans in South Side has helped make the series even more hilarious.]]>

Michael R. Jackson created the Pulitzer Prize and Tony Award winning Broadway musical A Strange Loop, and he joins jarrett and Tre’vell for a nuanced conversation about making art that’s based on one’s own life…kinda. Michael doesn’t consider A Strange Loop to be autobiographical, so much as self-reverential.

Maximum Fun Donates $53,436 to Trans Lifeline https://maximumfun.org/news/trans-lifeline-donation/ Wed, 09 Nov 2022 19:00:53 +0000 https://maximumfun.org/?post_type=news&p=103154 A collage of photos of staff members and show logos

Every year, Maximum Fun ends our fundraising drive with a sale benefiting a staff-selected charity. It's a wonderful celebration of the power of our community, and it's one of our favorite traditions. The past few years have been difficult for most and have left many budgets tighter, but our generous audience have continued to support the podcasts and artists that brighten their day. We are extremely grateful for everyone in the Maximum Fun community, both for their support of our shows and for buying thousands of patches in our charity sale. You make it possible for us to do good in the world. When we considered an organization to be the recipient of this year’s charity sale proceeds, Trans Lifeline was a natural fit. MaxFun is home to transgender artists, staff, members, audience, family, and friends who make our network better every day by being part of it. Anytime is a great time to donate to Trans Lifeline, but it feels particularly important in the United States right now. To add to that, the holidays are quickly approaching, and this season can be challenging and isolating for a lot of folks. We hope this donation to Trans Lifeline helps provide resources to people who need extra support right now.
The week, Maximum Fun sent Trans Lifeline a donation of $53,436.
[caption id="attachment_103155" align="aligncenter" width="600"]A collage of photos of staff members and show logos Normally we’d take a group photo of us handing over a giant novelty check (along with a real, cashable check) but we’re still working remotely so instead we have a collage of staff photos and show logos![/caption] Most people are familiar with Trans Lifeline’s hotline, where trans operators assist trans and questioning callers through immediate crises. But that’s only one branch of the lifesaving work they do. Trans Lifeline also operates a microgrant program to help with legal name changes, updating IDs, and hormone replacement therapy. And they have a wide library of resources, including specialized support for trans people who are incarcerated or undocumented. Since 2016, Trans Lifeline has given over one million dollars directly to trans people. Since 2017, Maximum Fun has donated over half a million dollars to nonprofit organizations through our limited-edition merchandise sales and other charitable endeavors. All of us at MaxFun are thrilled that this donation will help Trans Lifeline connect trans folks to the support and resources they need to survive and thrive.  A heartfelt thank-you to everyone in the MaxFun community for making our work and this donation possible. Time and time again, our audience have shown their commitment to supporting and uplifting folks in their and our communities. We’re also very grateful to the hosts of Maximum Fun shows who have helped bring our audience together. And, of course, thank you so much to everyone working and volunteering with Trans Lifeline, providing much-needed peer support for trans people. We at Maximum Fun are honored to help out in this small way, thanks to the generosity of our community.
If you’d like to join the Maximum Fun community in donating to Trans Lifeline, you can by making a contribution at translifeline.org.

[caption id="attachment_103161" align="alignnone" width="260"] Photo by Michael Loccisano /              Getty Images for SXSW[/caption]     Bruce McCulloch is one of the founding members of the Canadian sketch comedy team The Kids in the Hall. He starred in the eponymous TV show that aired for five seasons in both Canada and the U.S., and the follow-up movie Brain Candy. KITH was a legend of 90s weirdo sketch comedy, featuring unforgettable characters like Cabbage Head, Gavin, Tammy, and the infamous Kathie.  Kids in the Hall wrapped their original TV run in 1995, but since then Bruce has kept busy - he's had acting parts in shows like Gilmore Girls, Trailer Park Boys and Arrested Development. He's recorded albums and written for TV and movies. And earlier this year, alongside Dave Foley, Scott Thompson, Kevin McDonald and Mark McKinney - the group that created the beloved TV show in the 90s - he rejoined Kids in the Hall for their return to TV on Amazon Prime.  Bruce also spends his time working behind the camera. He's directed sketches, music videos for bands like Tragically Hip, and his most recent project: Tallboyz. Tallboyz is a sketch comedy TV show featuring four Canadian comedians who are, as the show's promises, tall. Luckily for the audience, they are also talented and incredibly funny. Bruce joins Bullseye to talk about his trajectory from being a young punk in Calgary that got into bar fights to a beloved fixture in the sketch comedy world. ]]>

Jason Kander on War, Politics, and PTSD https://maximumfun.org/episodes/depresh-mode/jason-kander-on-war-politics-and-ptsd/ Mon, 07 Nov 2022 10:00:54 +0000 https://maximumfun.org/?post_type=episode&p=103131

Jason Kander had heard of post-traumatic stress disorder. He just didn’t think he had it. After all, he hadn’t been in any firefights while stationed in wartime Afghanistan, he had merely worked as an intelligence officer. And even though that job put him in positions of tremendous vulnerability where he may have to kill or be killed in an instant, it never occurred to him that he was experiencing trauma.

So when Jason got back stateside and remained hypervigilant, was destroyed by night terrors, patrolled his house with a gun, and was generally a mess, he figured it was something that would soon go away. As he waited for that to happen, he climbed the ranks of Democratic politics, eventually being told by Barack Obama that he should consider running for the highest office in the land.

But you can’t run from mental illness forever. It catches you. It caught Jason in the middle of a race for Mayor of Kansas City. That’s when he hit bottom and got help. It’s a story told in his new book, Invisible Storm: A Soldier's Memoir of Politics and PTSD.

Get your copy of Jason's book, Invisible Storm: A Soldier's Memoir of Politics and PTSD, wherever books are sold. Listen to Majority 54, Jason's podcast with Ravi Gupta, wherever fine pods are cast.

Plus, AEW has a PPV coming up, but that doesn’t mean they’re not also INCREDIBLY petty on the road there, right?

[caption id="attachment_103071" align="alignnone" width="393"] (Photo: Bertelsmann Music Group)[/caption] The Song That Changed My Life is a segment that gives us the chance to talk with some of our favorite artists about the music that made them who they are today. This time around, we're joined by Billy Idol: Rebel Yell. White Wedding. Dancing With Myself. Billy Idol throws us back to 1954, to one of the first songs Elvis Presley ever recorded: That's All Right. He first heard the song at an Elvis convention with his sister in the '70s.  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=k-5p5djJAZg At the time, Idol was playing in punk rock bands and a lot of punk rockers disliked Elvis. Idol defends Elvis, and explains how the song changed how he approached his craft when he was first starting out. Billy Idol tours all the time, all around the world – he's got a residency coming up at the Cosmopolitan in Las Vegas. He's also a prolific recording artist - this past September, he released a brand new EP called Cage.]]>

“Weird Al” Yankovic https://maximumfun.org/episodes/bullseye-with-jesse-thorn/weird-al-yankovic/ Tue, 01 Nov 2022 07:00:24 +0000 https://maximumfun.org/?post_type=episode&p=102935

[caption id="attachment_102936" align="alignnone" width="495"] (Photo: Kevork Djansezian/Getty Images)[/caption] "Weird Al" Yankovic is the undisputed king of parody music. He’s been recording music for over 40 years and sold millions of records. He's got an iconic voice, the chops for pop and a sense of humor that's both distinct and approachable.  After all this time, Weird Al is getting the biopic treatment. Weird: The Al Yankovic Story was co-written by Al himself and debuts on the Roku channel on Friday, November 4th.  True to the biopic genre: Weird chronicles Al's life from childhood to present day. But unlike most biopics, it is not probing, emotional and dark. It is not grounded or not realistic and there are no facades to be lifted.  What Weird Al does to popular music, he does here to biopics. It's a very funny, joke-a-minute parody. The film stars Daniel Radcliffe as Weird Al, and Evan Rachel Wood as Madonna who’s Al's main love interest in the film. "Weird Al" Yankovic joins Bullseye to talk about Weird and the creation process behind the film. He also talks about how he got into making music and learning to play the accordion at a young age. Plus, he tells us about the time he decided he could make a living out of recording parody songs about food. ]]>

Tabitha Soren on Photography, Panic Attacks, and Overwhelming Grief https://maximumfun.org/episodes/depresh-mode/tabitha-soren-on-photography-panic-attacks-and-overwhelming-grief/ Mon, 31 Oct 2022 09:00:02 +0000 https://maximumfun.org/?post_type=episode&p=102921

People are many things. Tabitha Soren became famous for her conversations with star musicians of the 90’s during her stint on MTV News. But that’s not who she is anymore. Tabitha is, among many things, a mother grieving the loss of her daughter, Dixie, in a 2021 car accident. She talks about the challenge of having to come up with words to talk about Dixie and what her family has been through in the last year and a half. And she talks about the inspiration she stills draws from the life Dixie led. Tabitha is also a successful and acclaimed artist, working within the medium of photography to create pieces that are vibrant, complex, and multi-layered in both the literal and figurative sense.

And yeah, she is still the same person who had a front row seat to important musical moments. She fills us in on what it was like to be an extra in the Beastie Boys’ “Fight For Your Right” music video. It involved cream pies that were far from fresh.

For more information and Tabitha's photography, visit her website at TabithaSoren.com. Follow Tabitha on Twitter @tabithasoren and on Instagram @tabithasoren.

Keith Boykin joins us this week to talk about his new book, Quitting: Why I Left My Job for a Life of Freedom. In September 2021, 4.4 million people quit their jobs, beginning a trend that’s been dubbed The Big Quit, The Great Resignation and The Great Reshuffle. Whatever the name, millions of workers discovered they didn’t have to be tethered to an office to do their jobs, and the pandemic opened their eyes to this reality. But as Keith explains to jarrett and Tre’vell, “quitting” isn’t so much about leaving a job, as it is discarding an unhealthy mindset.

When Mariner wants to gush about life on the Cerritos to a visiting reporter, everyone mistrusts her intentions and tries to shut her out of the story. But when Captain Freeman assumes the worst about her daughter’s unauthorized interview, her epic overreaction forces Mariner to choose between Starbase 80 and striking out on her own. Is nepotism still legal in some states? How are we supposed to feel about Captain Freeman? Is a bunk bed shuttle the ultimate indignity?

Our annual Bullseye Halloween Spectacular is here! We talk with R.L. Stine, the creator of Goosebumps, Monét X Change of RuPaul’sDrag Race, and Ana Fabrega of Los Espookys. R.L. Stine, creator of Goosebumps [caption id="attachment_102750" align="alignnone" width="304"] (Photo: Macmillan)[/caption] R.L. Stine is the creator of Goosebumps, the series of kids horror books. Stine has written over 200 Goosebumps books, selling millions of copies. His books have inspired TV shows, movies, and even video games. He's written about ventriloquist dummies that come to life, haunted garden gnomes, and even wrote a book about giant hamsters.  Stine can never resist a good title. Say Cheese and Die, Werewolf Skin, and Go Eat Worms are just a few that stand out from his Wikipedia page. His latest book has a clever title as well. It’s a play on his last name called StineTinglers. It's a collection of 10 short horror stories for kids that’s out now.  R.L. Stine joins the show to talk about how the phenomenon that is Goosebumps came to be. He shares how he comes up with the storylines for each book and how he got into writing children's horror. Plus, he talks about his time as a comedy writer for a magazine he worked on during college. Monét X Change on the Craziest Day of Her Entire Career [caption id="attachment_102751" align="alignnone" width="387"] (Photo: Hulu)[/caption] Monét X Change is a drag queen. An icon in that world. A legend on Ru Paul's Drag Race. She is also the co-host of the 2022 Huluween Dragstravaganza on Hulu. Monét and her co-host, Ginger Minj, get stuck in old haunted Television. Of course, the only way out is to host a hilarious, larger than life variety special: sketches, musical numbers and cameos galore! Monét joined us to talk about the craziest day of her career. She throws us back to one of the most wild nights she's ever had while touring her live show. Monét still hits the road, click here for more info on when she'll be near you. Ana Fabrega on Los Espookys [caption id="attachment_102754" align="alignnone" width="395"] (Photo: Pablo Arellano Spataro / HBO)[/caption] Ana Fabrega is a comedian, actor and writer. She's worked on the Chris Gethard Show, had great parts on High Maintenance and At Home with Amy Sedaris. She's probably best known as a star and co-creator of HBO's Los Espookys. The show is about four friends who love horror. They run a company where they go around town and bring scenes from horror movies to real life. They're often hired for gigs to fool and scare other people. Together they use special effects to scare folks into believing in demonic possessions, sea monsters or creepy aliens. But it's not really a horror show, it's very funny. It's also a very sweet, goofy, kind of surreal show about friendship, identity and carving a place in the world for yourself. Ana joins us to talk about the latest season of Los Espookys, and how the show came to be. The show just wrapped up its second season, you can find it on HBO. ]]>
