"Today. There are too many good podcasts. To listen to now why not avoid that whole problem by listening to an extremely silly podcast hosted by me on. Wait wait don't tell me. It's wisecracks about the week's news. Shenanigans fart jokes and general silliness. And doesn't that sound pretty great right. Now listen to the weight. don't tell me podcast from. it's bullseye. Jesse thorn my guest. John wilson is the creator of. Hbo's how to with john wilson. It's a very funny and entirely unique documentary series that just wrapped up. Its first season on. Hbo it's executive produced by nathan fielder. Let's get back into it this a lot of emotion in the television show especially I think often the episodes start with the premise. That they are going to be explanatory and in some ways kind of a series of interconnected images that are just gonna flash past you. And sometimes they're i. I ran a funny sometimes. They're gee whiz and you know that kind of thing in the you tend to find people or find something in yourself. Are you able to plan any that. Or do you have to stumble upon plan. Any of of what like the those feelings like any of that. Any of those arcs that reveal themselves over the course of that twenty five minutes you know like if if it was reality television you plan the heck out of it. You know what i mean even if it was even if it was one of your executive producers on the show is nathan fielder who did an amazing show for comedy. Central called nathan for you and like. I'm sure that while there were things that they didn't know exactly how they would go they. I'm i'm sure they figured out what they were doing in an episode before they started doing it. Because that's how television is made. Yeah generally so how do you what do you know. What don't you well. I mean you know that there was a writers room before everything started. You know Myself and michael cohen who also executive producer and alice gregory an art..

"It's bullseye. I'm jesse for next up this week. Another fascinating new yorker. John wilson wilson is the host and creator of a new show. That just premiered on. Hbo a couple months ago. It's called how to with john wilson. It is and. I don't think i'm exaggerating here. One of the best shows to come out in the last year. And i have to say that i think it is my absolute favorite.

"Feels impossible in a helpful in tactile way mainly because you could traverse it like it is. It is a grasp -able in the mind. Los angeles as were specially feeling right now is just so vast and so sprawling in so many different cities stitched together. It doesn't really mean as much as in terms of is it doesn't mean as much as a staging ground for jokes or stories especially in a twenty one minute broadcast thing so it feels for me if that feels a little lost in a unspecific especially because tina fey car locker lobbing grenades at la from new york right. They don't live here. You know so. I'm not saying that you and i can pitch better jokes about the bucket. Cova testing debacle at dodger stadium back behind my house but like there is a certain like well deer. Are we doing here. Point the in the first episode. It's quickly addressed in hand and then brushed aside that this is a post covid. Show that this is priced me. I guess eradicated cova dolly parton fixed. Yeah and he is the mayor who takes over for the mayor. Who is like. I can't do this anymore because it was too hard to get and i. It's definitely a choice. We've discussed a couple of times about whether or not shows will grapple with what this planet has gone through over the last twelve months or whether or not they will anxiously await a world in which they can go back to quote unquote normal as the death toll rises it's kind of increasingly unfathomable of how you would make a piece of art and not grapple with this is definitely a choice and in terms of like you're watching a sitcom you want twenty seven minutes of of midlands and taking a break from let me be clear twitter like it does. Its job very very effectively. I was just curious whether or not you've thought the yada yada of covid. Smith the mark could all. I was surprised by it was also one of the funnier. Bits in the pilot definitely made me laugh. And i think i'll just instead of commenting definitively. Now he's kinda want to put a marker down because what you said resonates with the. I've just started to change my thinking on this. You know. I was very much like people. Don't wanna watch shows with masks. People wanna move on disappeared you know. Basically i'm kevin mccarthy over here you know what i mean like. Let's not say who caused the problem. Let's just all move on right. I think i. I'm not sure i feel that way anymore. I just feel like this is all too awful and on a scale that we have not know even people who have suffered we haven't suffered people have truly suffered in this There just hasn't been a reckoning of any kind yet. because how could there be. It's all still going on. So i i no longer feel like keep your your virus was a point last year where we were like. Let's just get succession back in had like stick season. Yeah right so it remains to be seen. I i kind of admired it. Because mainly they made a good joke about it and it would it ultimately would have felt weird or if they hadn't especially because for the dancing carrots kind of a lark that he's doing it and it certainly doesn't feel like goes positions should be filled by thrillseekers anymore. But right the one. Other thing. That i'll say i cannot wait to be proved wrong about this. The supporting cast. I'm not sure about yet. You know. I it is it has to be unsolvable. You should take your medicine on this one. Because i think like. Let's let's have that discussion after six episodes. Yeah there's no question. The second episode is better than the first and second episodes heart. It's just you know. There was a certain formula there following and i think getting holly hunter into the show kind of almost like alec baldwin was on thirty rock. She's kind of amazing. 'cause she always is i don't know if she's a sitcom actor doesn't mean she's not good. She's incredible yeah but her her. Her presence is weird. Yeah it's just while you're in raising arizona this this now and then i just i guess it might just be like a familiarity. The good place was mostly unknowns. And ted danson kristen bell and they all turned into should be known they were so brilliantly cast so the rest of the cast. I don't know yet so watching them do their share of the heavy lifting felt odd but i think also felt odd because it's the first and second episode and no one knows how to write for him yet so much more promising than i would have thought. Yeah we'll keep our eye on it. So think we give thumbs up to definitely how to john wilson and pretend it's a city on net flicks and then we are if you're looking for something that's like kind of a warm familiar feeling. Definitely check out mr mayor. It's on nbc and it's on peacock do worse than a triple feature these three half hours. That is just. Yeah you did peace out for the evening. This is a good way of doing it and it was great to talk to you. I have to cut it a little short today. Because i got to run but We'll be back on thursday with regular scheduled programing. I can't i just it's fine. You have a life to live. It's just that. I was going to read my chicken marinade email. I was going to name the movie that i didn't like last week and i was gonna finally tell them. This is let me be clear. The watch still has mysteries. Needs to hear all three of those things. But i guess you won't learn them today all right. Thanks talk to stay safe..

"But the max is winning in the. Hbo max war right. Like the warner brothers. Directives are winning again. Joe barton could make a brilliant show and we would be thrilled if he did. But this sort of corporate cheat servicing bums me. I just call me in for season. Tickets for the toonces. The driving cat runs the cinematic universe. Experience i've fucking loves like walter hamada going into the times to explain earth one and earth to a party of fan anytime to head of your studio needs to give like all these interviews to explain the overarching narrative philosophy of all of your content. I love it. I love it i love it. And he got extended. The i mean terence winter leaving her stay. I would love with the creative differences. Were i'm very curious as you were. Joe barton does with this. Does seem like it's right up his alley but doing a prequel show for a movie. That hasn't come out yet. We don't know of robert pattinson gonna stay as the batman. It's just amazing shit. It's also really interesting and way too soon to make any judgment on this but prior to hbo. Max there was a service that we didn't really cover the dc dc had its own channel right. Yes and it was a combination of like comic subscription service. But also the place where you could watch in petrova doom patrol which is hbo. Max and is pretty interesting. Or justin halpern's harley quinn cartoon which is really funny but also stuff like titans which is probably fine. You know what i mean. But i'd have no interest watching it. because it exists. It was correctly positioned in that people who want to subscribe to a d. centered comic book slash television universe. Great here's your show. What's odd and it. It's something that we have seen similarly with the way star. Trek is being managed over it at Cbs all access or soon to be paramount blues. Or whatever we're calling it just throwing content that you own it. Something isn't it's it's. It's treading water in the marketplace. Not the of ideas with the marketplace. But i don't know what you're doing other than that other than laying down markers you're not getting new eyeballs. You're not converting people you're just converting things you own into other things that you own which may be as the end product of the stage of capitalism where studios are all owned by the networks which are all owned by the same cable companies are streamers and we're just sort of circle jerking zing ourselves into abstraction but not sure i'm on i know i began by saying it might be good sure. Okay might be good but all of this by the way is a great way to Throats before the shows that. We're talking about which i think stand in Very bright and important contrast to this type of television sure. yeah i would just. I wanted to mention one more thing that we add here. Arredondo is like the the of news this week. Fx and. danny. Boyle are going to be doing a biopic series about steve jones guitarist from the the sex pistols. It's called pistol day. Boyle obviously did trust for the network a little while ago which i think we talked about a couple of episodes of that and i was very cool but i didn't really quite grab that much traction and this was written by frank cottrell boyce who wrote twenty four hour party people for michael winterbottom which is an awesome movie. Any millions for boyle. And it's going to feature characters. I mean john lydon said vicious the chrissie in from the pretenders will all be characters in the show this is in canon for the sex pistols extended universe. Yeah s. p. e. u. is is a thing that i've been personally really monitoring you know i i don't know if you saw john lydon talk about earth. One and earth two on on alex jones. Recently done lydon's later period is like earth. Fuck off right kids. Not the same continuity. I this is. This is by definition interesting. Once you get a low the hood right. Because once he realized that it's danny boyle and the guy who wrote twenty four hour party people at one of the best movies of this young century. I think you realize that this might be so much more than it could be because making a six part show about steve jones is. You know it's it's it's slightly less than making a three's miniseries about ringo. It is not your normal entry point into a well known story but that alone kind of makes it interesting and jones to sort of like literally just workmanlike career while being front and center to all the craziness that the sex pistols represented is. It's kind of cool. It seems like a cool project. I i i. I was back in my yields. So that just seemed so out of left field. And are we just like servicing this relationship with danny boyle. But maybe it's going to be creative and fun. Yeah and i. I'm actually equally excited for the Creation records movie or or that. Danny boyle's executive producing just because that alan mcgee such an incredible character and for people who creation. Was this really influential. Independent music global in england England scotland was a scottish base. He got a scottish but he was based in london and they they obviously were the label that put out a my bloody valentine and oasis and so many other really huge bands from england so i would really excited to see that that if bang pow owned band. That's why don't we take a quick break and when we come back we'll talk about the collection shows that we had in mind for today. This episode is brought to you by the all new twenty twenty one nissan rogue the ability to.

"In america we have so much to talk about today and we're going to get through a bunch of tv news. That came across the transom. Is it transient marill thing. What is that is that like. Yeah like the transom. There's the transfer window right okay. And then across the transom. Wire like basically on our. It's on our desk now in the news business. We're just sitting here. We got these little white piece of paper coming out of the ticker tape machines. Were reading the news. We got some news in the beginning. And then we're going to go through a couple of shows that have been delighting recently My ticker tape is just all cranston. Brothers we're gonna be talking about mr mayor How to john wilson and pretend it's a city with friendly woods from martin scorsese net flicks. So a couple of shows were hit Let's get into the watch a man. How are you happy monday. I'm great i'm great. How are you. i'm doing okay. i'm trying to get through it. You know it was like a very. I feel very emotionally exhausted from this. Last week i feel very like fried manoeuvres endings are shot. You know all the cliches. But they're true. Yeah i mean it's it's a terrible time which is why. I'm glad that we can see each other talk to each other. Talk to our good friends in the greater. Watch listening community. yeah. I need to call kiki's delivery service. Just get me through inauguration day. The truth is chris that watching that movie would help you but Although i know you're speaking metaphorically but yeah i know i'm grateful to have other things to talk about. But because this is really putting to attest even like deeply-held psychologically of mind that i am not up to enacting like is served no role in this peaceful transfer of power. You know what i mean. Like checking for maggie haberman like nineteen times. A day isn't doing my civic duty. In fact it's probably sure causing more mental and emotional anguish. So i can't say i practice what i preach but i do preach preach feelings of tranquility and optimism. Well let me take you back to a simpler time. Take you back to a time. When four ladies just lived in new york china make sense of life and love professional peaks and valleys and there is a show called sex in the city. That was i think would be now like the given how popular it was then would be one of the biggest you know is was a huge huge phenomenon. It would be like a like. I don't even think we could comprehend how popular that show was back. Then yes and kaia. It's like emily in paris but that was a cheap shot So sex in the city is coming back on. Hbo max in a i guess a continuation of the story of sex in the city of carrie miranda and charlotte..

"How i wish it had been about immigration instead But that's kind of what. I was expecting it to end up being But then real turning turning resort owned a metaphor for life both in general but then pandemic life. I think is a pretty solid choice. Yeah very fussy and also even if it's gloppy it's still delicious if you read right. Just add enough cheese. It'll still be delicious well. Do you have any thoughts on this deal. Recommended to people or not. No like i said i definitely recommend this to people I think i would be very picky about who i recommended to and i would couch it in a couple of different sort of. Do not bend to this. This is not sure to bench. You can maybe two episodes of time but you really shouldn't do anymore than that because it is something. It is something that you get rewarded by setting west. I think At the very least having someone to talk to about it. Because i was really excited to talk to you about this on and it was also very excited listeners. When i found out kate and i were on the same page about this only gonna get a fight about it. Now that we've ever gone to fight about any of this After next week. Two hundred and sixty episodes of me being on the show but yeah so i think there's just some really good stuff here and i would definitely recommend it to people but i would be very specific in who i recommended it to. What about you. yeah. I mean it would be this feel like anybody who would ask me about this to be like. Oh you would be someone that i'd be like if you've heard about it and you're interested then check it out. I would even go as far as you. I would say. Do not even watch two at a time. Watch one at a time and then maybe the next day watch the next one but the more that you sit and think about it the more it will benefit the viewing will benefit. And like you said if you have someone else that you're watching or that or find a podcast about it if there is one or look up some reviews and reflections. This is that i feel like isn't really reviewable but is very often of and i think part of that is built into the auto nog raphia sort of approach what they have with this. Yup yup definitely. I think there's a lot of food for thought. I think just for me. I just am not in place right now. Where i want that. Which is very damning does not make me look all that great as i sit down to watch another episode of sewing bee. But i really push against that. That doesn't make you look great but aren't hits said people at different times from different perspectives and in different ways because we don't consume things in evacue So it's okay it does not make you look at now. No it's not that. Like normally i want the show that is going to want you to think in where you have. You might have to work a little harder but it's really rewarding. That's the kind of show that this is Just i would temper some of the expectations. That i think come with the types of raves. At this is getting from types of critics who are raving about it like friend of the show. Jim acre life the ryan like a bunch of people who i really respect. You are like oh. His best finale. I watched all year. I'm still thinking about it. It's you know one of the top Shows of this of the year. It's the one that's gonna stick the longest it's nailed the pandemic better than anything out like. They're not wrong but it can go in expecting all the other baggage that that type of description tends to bring with it. I don't know if you will appreciate the show in the way. It is designed and intended to be appreciated. I think that's super duper. I think there's other one other thing about it. But i have been able to put my finger on it Yeah yeah yeah so. We'll look at thinking about. I'm sure over the next several weeks as we head into our end of the year But for now that's how to johnson or how. How do with. John wilson with nola. Kate You can fight. A post visited over the telephone or can leave a comment. Let note you thought of the weeks. Tv you can like our page on. Facebook concerns conversation there.

"So that's kind of needed introduced a whole jar to me but this was also produced by midfielder. Fielder of nathan for you and this reminds me of that Not insignificantly and i connect much stronger to nathan for you than i do to this one And maybe that's because that's more sketches in. Moore's gets more traditional in that way for some comedy in that way But i do think it's bringing up these interesting things giving you stuff to think about like the episode that starts out with improving your memory ends about the mandela affect a like a mini conference on the mandela. I'm just watching it with the context of what's happening right now with the election and watching people go you know. I'm pretty sure it's not that i remembered this thing wrong for my youth or that like i saw for breeze and i don't look at it very closely and i know how to spell the word breeze and that's why i assume there are two ease rather than there actually are. It's not that it's that. The timeline has shifted because that is the only way that this can make sense. There's something about that that just fits really nicely with no no. The election is not what it is and also when these doctors are saying that current viruses. Very serious and it prevented by masks. And here's all the data to prove it I think it is. Because i remember that it's not that so therefore it's not and it's easier for me to believe in parallel universes and people altering the timeline than it is for me to accept that the way i've been thinking about something might be inaccurate like there's so there's like a lot in here in these smaller moments when example that that are very resonant with what we're experiencing right now but it's it's it's inviting you to think about that on your own time as you watch. It's a very. it's a very different experience. I say the most of the shows i've seen. Yeah and i think there's definitely like i think they can fill in nathan for us a solid connection watch when his name came up. After the first episode i went. Oh the explains it as someone who never responded to nathan nathan for you. I just went. Oh this this explains that listeners. I also kind of equated my general response to this to my response to review. Which if you listened to a couple of years ago when we did almost all of it. I was like this. I get it. It's not funny except for the pancakes episode. I get so much. I love ella pro. Like you're like funny like it's hilarious and yet we're both on the exact same page about this one on this and so like for me. There's a lot of connections between certain kinds. Documentarian modes of this is operating end. So for me reminds me a lot of sherman's march which is this really long documentary about of filmed by a guy named pross mckelway. Who broke up with his girlfriend. And then just decides to make a documentary about sherman's march through atlanta. But in fact he blows the entire grant money on shooting in and around land of trying to get laid and navigating relationships that he forms while trying to sensibly. Make this movie about sherman's march to the sea. It's really great. It's really compelling. I haven't watched in years. I don't know how well it holds up from. When i saw back in college in this movie from the early to mid eighties or around the time that i was born if not a little bit earlier But it has that same kind of self deprecating narrator unreliable self deprecating narrator. This kind of wanders into tangents that kind kinda loop around into something meaningful kind of structure which is also kind of era morrissey as well More air morris being a director. Who's done a number of documentaries about kind of weird people which is very centered in this in how to john wilson From the middle of conference which just had like a era morris ask feel to the entire thing to the random people that he encounters that show him how to make risotto or the guy who has the foreskin in thing Which is not how science works buddy. I really hate to tell you but it's not how any of that works. You don't get taller because you stretch yourself. Your foreskin does not go back because you've attached a wait to european s. This is not how any of this works But kudos for just showing us that penis completely on toronto sized way Screen twenty dollars just doesn't rhyme so it's not just right. Yeah but all being said this is very much operating in an established tradition of certain documentarian approaches on to your point But i do also agree with you that it is a show that asks a lot of you to like stay tapped in because it is very heavily edited very heavily structured in a way to your point about the mandela. End this idea about election. And just the very nature of truth and fact Is something that is there in this episode but is offscreen like you're supposed to draw that connection to it which is something that's really consistently done throughout this entire show is that it is very much about. Here's the thing. I'm going to talk about this week. Which is scaffolding which was by far and away the most interesting thing until he pivoted away from. Because i found the entire concept of scaffolding as like f- within urban live to be really interesting i was just like oh this is kind of cool and then you kinda pivoted away from it but then you got back to it. And that's kind of the thing about the shows that he pivots away find something in it becomes about something else which i think they do generally a solid enough job making bathroom line happen I don't necessarily know that the episode about covering your furniture really hits as well as i think they wanted to but at the same time. I can't be upset because there's so much good cat. Content of medics. There's a lot of. I liked that more than you did. If only because i was found the process very satisfying as they go to cool as they go to let you watch them like we will cover anything you bring us and we will do it. Like immaculately like I will say that how to split. The check spoke very viscerally to me in my experience as someone who in undergrad was friends with like a bunch of engineers and And scientists and you'll also i had several friends of musicians but like i was in my nerd group of friends. It was mostly people who would graduate. Make you know money to some extent in a way that as a musician said we're going to happen and so like every now and again you'd go out to eat at like you know you're catching up kind of thing and the only will be like i ordered..

"New york. Hbo is having a hard time explaining where my show is So i just figure net. I just try to do it myself. Usually the host of a tv show in right in front of the camera and you can see exactly where the voices coming from which i guess people like my show. You never really see the host. And that's because i'm actually behind the camera the whole time filming everything you see so instead of having to stare at me for the whole program you get to see all the cool stuff that i like the film instead which i think makes a lot more exciting to watch spent a lotta time Walking around new york trying to find the answers to some of life's biggest questions. Sometimes i talked to people that i am out in public and ask them for their advice. Other times i'll just open up a door and seems the other side and every now and then i leave down for a couple of days and explore what other cities have to offer but at the end of the day i always come right back kind of like that show planner but if it was only in new york and david at was forced to build everything himself. Stick with me. I'll show you how to solve problems that you didn't even know you have because even if it looks like you've got it all figured out there's a million ways to get it wrong That was a trailer for. Hbo's how to with john wilson which is a one one season six episode I believe. I don't think it's been renewed. I don't know it's just a one off This is a documentary style. Show narrated by. John wilson that purports to study in examined. The how you do certain things into how to And each episode starts at one point and then branches into several different places before coming back around to the central thesis or the question of the episode And examining with now a slightly different lens and perspective while give you little hints of the life of our documentarian along the way and the life in new york in general. What did you think of this show. I think that apart. From really the finale which i think is the show strongest episode but also the strongest episode by happenstance That this is a show that i can really appreciate. I can understand why a lot of people really really really really responded to and whites on a number of best of best of year lists that are starting to come out. But i think this is also showed that i just kind of appreciated and dot what it was doing and went. This is good but it just never really kind of connected with me. In any way side from an occasional really small sublime that i think most of at least a small maybe half the episodes have That you can really only get in this kind of a show format So i think all of it generally works really really well and it is something i would actually actively recommend people even. If it's not a show that i felt really compelled by for the most part. I do think it's very well made. It is also very well written. Which is something. I really want to emphasize about this. Is them each episode. Has to three writers So that's something to keep in mind. It is also really immaculately. Edited and wilson house. A terrific i for creating image associations with dialogue. That i think really stand out. It just didn't connect to me in a way that i was kind of expecting to after seeing a lot of the buzz about it But i do think that this is very good I just. I think it's very good for me from a distance. Almost of like. I appreciate this work of art type of deal. It doesn't move me in the same way like that kind of thing down the hall did but it's good. I can tell that it is good. That is how i feel about it. so how'd you feel about broad strokes. Yeah i'm in the same place as you and i will look. It has been renewed for a second season so we are talking about how to johnson season. One it was rude as we reported yesterday. So i'm yeah But this is. I appreciate it more than i love it and this is not for everyone but the people that is for will really like it. The thing is. I think that the people that it's for may not know that they love it until they finish it Which because of because of some stuff that will get into but like like i. I definitely this one. You know me. I can binge a lot. I could not been just show. I watch whatever's out. I was like okay. Let's put this on. I'm gonna like hit the treadmill and like walk slowly so i can like really focus on it and But still get some like steps into everything. 'cause don't have a lot of time today And i'll do like three episodes One and then. I was like okay. Nope my mind is wandering. I need to turn this off and put on. I don't know something else. Put on some bake off or put on some sewing bee or put on some You know just something that is more requires less of me. I think this requires a lot more as a viewer to connect with. It's not gonna come to you. You have to combat. And this is because cream by john wilson and it is is a docu series but does comedy series comedy docu series which is not asia on ryan familiar with familiar with faux documentaries comedies but not like actual comedy docu series..

"And they rank everybody in that round and then the second one is the first season. It's not blind but in second season it is blind and that's where they give everyone a standard like basic garment and they tell them to alter it so like. Maybe it's a t-shirt maybe it's a maybe it's a skirt or pants or here's a basic boxy dress. Change it into something else alter it. Do whatever you want with it. And then they. Then they in the second season on getting they lined rank them and then Their version of the technical and the third one is the one that they can prepare for where they tell them what they're going to have to make they could pick their own pattern ahead of time and they'll I'm guessing they know fabrics are maybe they order a fabric or something and so. That'll that'll be a. That's the long ones such what they had like. Six hours. Seven hours that kind of thing to make garment and then every week. Somebody's eliminated the end. Somebody wants the final three so you know the second season we have. Some of those interstitial that used to happen on bake off with history about different like the history of the macintosh or sell singer sewing machine company was founded in the uk in bubba thing and those those really interesting but mostly as a show that you can kinda fell asleep while you're watching and then like wake up ten minutes later and be like how are they doing. It works great. And i actually have come to really enjoy it. It's a good. You know kind of background thing. If you don't want to keep rewatching big off and you can find it. You have access to it and sewing of interest to you. You check it out. you think. Our next show is the amazing race. Run on your tippy toes. So you're the one with a stronger opinion on this. Did you think of the the the alliance all of these different things. What did you think this penalty episode will. I mean i really feel like. I mean we just need to remind ourselves of this is a race and it's a competition and you know there are winners. And they're going to be losers. And i think it's just really important to keep that stuff in mind. Okay everyone mo- what's that. You thought that this was a waste of time. Should just come here on a vacation. Okay dangelo by. Oh a million dollars. Isn't life changing for us that you can just pay to do all this by yeah 'cause wolf yellow off We'll get to that in a second but that was my big takeaway from this episode. Is that de ngelo. Very sore loser after being an asshole in previous episode So since it isn't like alliances when he's not benefiting from them. Yeah interesting how that works out. Isn't it good on gary for being like. Oh no we'll talk about this in like a month and he'll talk about how much she loved it and i kind of don't doubt that that's true but boy that good doboy is just like buddy. You're you're a human being this is. There's a camera right here. I mean come on. Yeah yeah buddy. I know you're upset. But we all got media when we when we joined the nfl. You knew someone had to lose right like that's how this works. I know you know that because you played professional football anyway This episode structured really intr-. While i like that just Everyone does the thing. And you gotta do it. the sprint like model yet the sprint model. I think is really good I think it should come earlier in the race because like maybe like midway through I understand why doing it here. Just because there are fewer people it makes it very easy to follow. Yeah it does make it very easy to follow But then they get to the biggest to the flag challenge which is always a quintessential amazing race thing And these people to things about them so first thing watching them not be able to figure. This out was deeply satisfying after washing them. Just kind of cruise through everything because of the alliance And it was really compelling to watch them just completely breakdown because their alliance wasn't helping them in this instance because that was just really rewarding to watch because one of the problems. I think i've had with the season. Is that the challenges have just resulted in not being very compelling television So watching them just collapsed watching the giver to unionize like their bachelor's on the bachelorette is just amazing to watch like they're ready to quit. This is so difficult for that but then you realize that the repeating the same mistakes that they made at the beginning of the race which is number to read your conclude. Everyone like read it. It's not complicated. It's complicated after you've been there like when you realize penalty only two hours. It's like oh man if they had just taken the penalty right at the beginning uh-huh that was the way to go so i think that watching them just completely collapsed because they couldn't figure this out was delightful for me and then watching them kind of be like we can just brute force our way through this cause we've kind of got it and then they keep getting it wrong because they didn't read. The clue was again just so deeply deeply satisfying. Because i've come to the other thing. I've come to realize upon watching the sheer shot important i got from this was really. Don't like any of these like some of them in like a television way but like overall it. Just don't like them. So through the editing through the race and everything is just like the lights is really soured me on all of them. I think so just watching them just completely collapsed was really really great and i really enjoyed that aspect of it. How did you feel about this circuit. Well here's the thing with it and this was too hard of challenge like was a challenge yet like i'm okay with them having very difficult challenges but like there was no way that they were gonna get any of them. Were gonna get this if they didn't work together. Like there's no way i mean they. Could you know not that. They should the giving up the right thing to do what they needed to do. Was exactly what they did. But each team was to do individually rather than as part of as part of a per mutations in a larger group but like because it wasn't like there were four places that had music there are way more than four places that had music in only two of them..

"Oh it's okay. I mean you know like my favorite movie ever tie for days moving it. She did not like that. That chris blanked. Our friendship is over. Then what have you been watching. I finished up. How to with john wilson on. Hbo max end man. I just. I've really liked the show. I struggled to explain what it was last week. When i was talking about it after i just seen the first episode and i don't really have a better explanation this week even though i finished the series. It's a shame defies. Typical categorization The the documentary comedy. But i just wanted to say that. I think one thing i noticed throughout the whole series was that it seems to be on the surface just like a series of like a oddball observations. But i think there's more to this show than that and i found it to be a surprisingly Profound at certain moments. And i think there's there's this idea of You've probably heard people talk about it before about like how a the more specific something is. Sometimes the more That truth can feel universal even though that seems counter intuitive and i feel like that idea is sort of on on display in this show as well there are these connections that he forges. The host of show forges with these Interview subjects that feel very specific If you're not on the streets of new york city you would never come across these these people or people doing these civic things or whatever but the the underlying truths that are that are unearthed during these conversations. Feel very universal and very relatable so And i thought the season finale was especially poignant in sweden just very nice. Oh i just wanted to to follow up on that and say that i enjoyed the entire season of How to john wilson. Although there is this one moment in the fourth episode that has there's a scene that Can be pretty difficult to watch like. I don't wanna say what it is because it's so out of nowhere and There is a pretty incredible moment that happens during during this really Otherwise troubling a sequence but Yes oh i would say you know if you are on board with the show and you hit episode. Four in the moment happens near like the hell. I think that's what you're supposed to feel. And then i would say don't give up on the show because these season finales is is very good. So yes that is to john wilson. It's on hbo max right now and then. What else have i been watching i. I'm finished season five of my rewatch of lost. My wife are sort of slowly patiently making our way through that instead of doing like a deep binge and man. I love season five so much. I don't really need to talk about this very much. But i just i forgot how great season by season of the show at this point that i want to wait until the you know everything is is all done before i do like a ranking or whatever but i think season is going to be up there when the show season is the dharma season where they the nineteen seventy seven That whole thing and there's a lot of of time jumping and time travelling Stuff yet it really does. End the like god. Jeremy davies man. He is just unbelievable. Dana faraday think might be my favorite character and olive loss. That's a weird thing to say because comes in so late in the game that you never like front and center on the marketing man. I just i love every single choice that he makes him in that role. So yeah so. It's a great moment so anyway season five olive losses on hulu and i would encourage people to watch or rewatch it there. You wanna do that. Speaking of twenty twenty catch-up movies jacob was catching up with possessor. I finally caught up with birds of prey. Which is streaming on. Hbo max right now. And i really really liked this movie. I i missed it in theaters when it came out in february of this year. Guys somehow birds appraise twenty twenty movie which seems insane to think about because it feels like ages and ages ago that people were really talking about us in a serious way man. I really came away from this liking at a lot. More than i thought it was going to. I think going in. I think i'd just heard so much Sort of middling response or maybe people being slightly disappointed in that in my mind. I remember you liking Pointing out several moments. That i thought of you when i was watching it like being like. Oh yeah. I remember the ac really like this part or this aspect or whatever but I consider me a very very big fan of birds of prey. I think the only complaint that i would have was is that the The final action scene like the big action climax of the movie. I felt like some of the action choreography and camera work and stuff like that. It felt a little perfunctory. Just kind of like all right. We're just kind of going through the motions ear. And and i guess you could say that on a lot of superhero movies. But i don't know if it was like the staging of this which takes place in this big You know comically novelty sort of abandoned circus. Yeah funhouse kind of area. And i don't know if it was just like the inherent ridiculousness of seeing you know people like mary. Elizabeth winstead margot robbie like bouncing around on giant tongues and like crazy Funhouse mirror essentially in like you know all sorts of like a ridiculous environments if that just added to the whole. Feel that like okay. This this whole thing just feels a little Kind of cheap like a comparatively cheap to the rest of the movie But other than that. One tiny gripe i. I love the characterizations. I loved Pretty much everything about this. I was a very big fan of the script..

"Seven you know a month or two Late and i really loved this movie. I i love aaron sorkin in general i think it's fantastic writer as a director. He proved he. He was definitely competent. With molly's game Still had something to prove and this is a step up in. I think for him as a filmmaker. the ensemble cast is is fantastic here. it's Cohen is is in this movie and he. You know it's not. It's it's fun to see him do this kind of role as opposed to doing his usual. You know comedy stick even even if it's a character who'd still has this star cast dick Funny side too because he's a very rebellious and smart ass. Civil rights activists. But everybody in this movie is is really good. Jeremy strong is also fantastic. Eddie redmayne you know. He gets a lot of crap because he puts in these huge bombastic performances in In like jupiter sending and he's a little to quirky fantastic beasts. But i really liked liked him in this movie. And it's it's very timely. Very relevant for the things that have happened this year and You know definitely ties into our political unsocial spectrum that we're seeing unfold right now and it's in a way of in Infuriating seeing how this court case unfolded in how much discrimination and bias. There was from the judge trying the case. But it's it's such that there's many things that haven't changed. You know um for for minorities in just for for civil rights in the justice system in general But you know it it offers you know. Someone's of hope and it's Yeah it's just a really great Courtroom drama to to give a watch. That's on netflix. Chris would have been watching. I watched happiest season. Which is hulu movie. Premieres tomorrow on hulu and got kristen. Stewart mackenzie davis and aubrey plaza. Pretty much everyone is in this movie and it was a it was a nice movie. It's it's not great but you know it's gonna. It's getting a lot of attention because you know it's a hardy romcom but it's about Gay characters and that's even though it shouldn't be a big deal it is you know the fact that it's a you know a big holiday movie with that angle. That said it doesn't exactly you know. Do anything different i. It's pretty much a generic rom com. But it's it's very funny. It's very charming and it's a it's a nice movie so I think people will will enjoy this in. It'll be on hulu so everyone can watch it during the holiday season. And yeah that's all i have to say. Okay cool then. What have you been watching last night. I watched the first episode of a show that is on. Hbo max right now. Called how to with john wilson. Has anybody here seen the show yet by any chance. I i've heard a lotta divisive things with either is the greatest thing ever or it's horrible. Oh interesting okay. So i'd only heard from a handful of people just tweets and things like that like oh this show is really check it out kind of thing and i. I didn't even really know what it was. But i just decided to to throw it on last night and my wife and i only watched the first episode but i think we enjoyed it. It was the entire season. i believe. There's only six episodes in the whole thing but yeah it's it's this guy. John wilson was a filmmaker who i guess is based out of new york city and a lot of it i think all of it so far has been films like before the pandemic so it's like him walking around documentary style kind of narrating the episodes and each episode has like a theoretically topic that he's supposed to be sort of exploring the first episode is held him how to make small talk and it's him just sort of like It's a very difficult to explain show. But it's like him juxtaposing footage that he gets of Things and people in new york city with this narration. That is very dry and naked. Fielder from nathan for you is an executive producer on the show definitely has that same kind of it feels like it's in the same comedy family as as something like a naked for you it's not nearly as cringe-worthy but the I guess topic of each individual show. Just sort of like services like a a launchpad for for john wilson spin out and create an find discover and explore. These tangents that he goes on that are Pretty entertaining so far. So like i said. I've only seen one episode. I feel weird trying to explain the entire show but of what i've seen so far it's It's a weird show but I think i'm i'm on board for now anyway so I i'm curious to see if anybody else here gets a chance to check this out. What you think of it. Especially peter if it's supposed to be very divisive. So i i have not really looked into it or read anything about it because i wanted to sort of get my own sense of at first but i look forward to to sort of watching more than reading a bunch of stuff about it and seeing the the divisive nece is for people there so i think it just seems like it's a very particular type of comedy that either you like or don't yeah that's i'm getting yeah i i can definitely understand that. I think you'll know in the first. Maybe like fifteen minutes or urso of the or ten. Maybe ten minutes of the episode. Whether it's the kind of thing that that you'll like although the back half of the episode goes in an interesting place that i was not expecting. So that is how to john wilson. It's on hbo max right now. I also re watched the hunt for red october. For the first time in many many many years i probably saw it in nineteen ninety eight or something came out.

"An always perfectly constructed. Yeah say yeah. I lost my train of thought there. But yeah i this is my real voice and you know take it or leave it and I started narrating my movies. Just because i was always self conscious about my recorded voice which. I don't think i'm alone and i think people feel disgusted. Sometimes when they hear themselves like played back their voice sounds like an active inactive away from what they always thought. It sounded like. And i i kind of use the films as the way to become comfortable with the sound of my voice and you know because i was always afraid of really putting myself out there like that and in fact in some of the earlier films there are moments where you just kind of make sound or and i don't know if this is a mistake or not i would guess it's a purposeful mistaker mistake that you made the conscious choice to leave in but there are some parts where it just ends mid sentence as if a mistake has been made right. Yeah i mean. I was just cutting everything my southend. Sometimes they're the just be these kind of happy accidents in the edit where i would accidentally put a clip on top of one another one and instead of undoing it i would just i would just preserve the like accidental edit. And you know. I think that just makes it feel more relatable in a way you know just kind of having it with warts and all right right to form is echoing the content although i guess when it comes to. Hbo the decree was something like okay. Let's not go that far right. It was really funny because the post production department you know they had to go take know. There's a quality control like phase at the end and they needed to flag. You know every time that the camera operator was in the shot or even though it was me and that was the point of the show like the the whole edit was filled with flags that we needed to tell them. No that's intentional. You know you're supposed to see my feet your or know this. This composition is like it's okay. If you see myself in the mirror right. It's and i do think with things like reality tv. We at least tell ourselves we're such sophisticated consumers of that that we know there's artificial but with You know with all documentaries with almost all these forms there they they try to send off the edges and two per and to show perfect installations especially of how people look so. We're really attuned to that. And since i'm a podcast slash radio guy. I notice it more often with voices than maybe the average person. But i do think your show is underlining the artifice not just in terms of oh everyone has to look perfect on tv which is well known but think about how perfect sounding tv or film or standard documentary demands. Yeah and this is all stuff that i'm kind of actively working against you know in my own work i a bit of a purist in some ways you know about like manipulating the image and stuff like that. I really just want to have. I want everything to be completely raw. I and you know you have a title at the beginning. And that's pretty much it but you know it's like every single documentary in the world right now. Just has the same bizarre recycled the jinx in intro. You know like it's almost like it's it's like. They feel like they have to do it to make legally documentary. It has to have like it has to have some moody like over designed like title sequence and it just like that on top of of other cliches just like trope where the trope where you've interviewed twelve talking heads and they use the same phrase and you cut them altogether. I've only seen god. I've seen that about one hundred times. I don't know like like why they think people like like want that or need it. You know it's like you do it once or twice and it. Just i don't know i just wanted to. You know the show for me is is just kind of like a sandbox between a you know for a bunch of different documentary styles. So i don't really sit too long in any one of them. But i did want to. I don't know if you've ever seen that movie. Los angeles plays itself. Yeah it's you know that was like a. I wanted to have the section in the scaffolding. Episode where i talk about scaffolding cinema and that was a little genre experiment in that section just to kind of pay homage to that movie but you know and then i just wanted to be the dip out of it. I glanced thing. I want to ask you about. Is your visual vocabulary. Your visual style. Which is so often. You'll have you'll make a reference and then you'll cut to assign or that reference playing out in a different pun type way. It's fantastic in terms of your catalog of images do you. Well i just want to ask you. Do you just shoot image after image and then hope you have one in the vault or do you go or do you write a script and then go out seeking images to match what you're going to talk about It's kind of a mix of the two i. This is a hard thing to reproduce but at the end of the day. I'm i'm shooting writing and editing simultaneously. And that's the best way to do it. I'll sometimes. I may have a gag that i kind of pencil down before production that we want to try out and maybe have a scavenger hunt. You know for and try to find the footage but a lot of the time you know like. I'm personally shooting every single day on the streets and then i have a second unit team that shoots about a quarter of the show. It's like four or five teams every single day in different parts of the city with no real agenda which. I'm sure which apologies. I'm sure it can be kind of annoying. Sometimes but a lot of you know almost every day they come back with something exceptional and we work. Like and i'm i'm shooting all day. And then i go into the and watch the material and we kind of pick. The editors and assistant editors we pick out the most naturally like interesting or funny in like you know just naturally funny shots and then like you kind of a joke in the moment to the shot and then you think about how to pet it with footage around it and you either have the footage already because we have a crazy archive. That's all keyword. Or you. Go out or i go out myself or second. Unit person will go out and shoot until they find that. It's very specific strange thing. I hope you've gotten great reaction on this. I hope i don't know it seems like the kind of show that's not usual. That could go one of many directions. And i would just hope that whatever direction it goes. Hbo is looking at it. Like an artistic achievement and enough people find it and get something out of it. Because i have to say i just i just find it really impressive and so different.

It became a potential political flash point or so hoped the trump the election committee the four members of the board to dem's republicans quote shall certify the results from the county's. Yes there were problems with three hundred fifty of the quarter of a million votes cast in wayne county but the remedy sought by the trump administration throwing out all the votes is appalling brazen in disproportionate yet.

I would respectfully suggest that if you take the rubber stamp that you're not allowed to have any discretion that makes your job meaningless poor assessment going outside the boundaries of the law doesn't make your job at meaningless. It denies the job powers that the job holder doesn't have in the same way a toll booth collector doesn't have the right to impound your car if you're not wearing a seat belt or the zookeeper doesn't have right to free.

Lynda Barry and Chris Ware: Making Comics and Rusty Brown
"Some thirty years ago. Art Spiegelman was led to agree that if we could take frequent breaks he would come into the studio even though he has to smoke back then. It's around thirty years ago. Art I smoked two will go on breaks together. Either he said okay. We did a show and we became immediate friends and one by one he introduced me to Chris. Wears work to Dan Klose's work. I think you Chris Dan Clouds and chip kidd a book designer. Were on the show together now. Finally after thirty years of being toned than I would would love Linda Barry that she's inspiring that she's improvisational explosive. I Have Lynda Barry here for her book making comics. And I'm curious about how you own wall because Matt graining. The inventor of the simpsons is a part of this and the Canadian artist named Seth Is. Did you all get together. Well I I met Chris. I remember you being a key in my mind. You're a kid and it was when mouse to the second book had come out and art called me on the phone. He was in town to sign books and he said I want you to meet this kid. He called you a kid. I want you to meet this kid. He said he can draw anything. And I said okay he goes. No I actually mean he can draw anything and I remember being in this Restaurant restaurant or a cafe and that you didn't talk very much and you just sort of leaned back and looked terrified but I remember I likes Hugh immediately and I didn't know your work and I didn't know what you did but I just remember liking you immediately so my relationship with you. Chris is a procedure. Cj Work or even precedes me. Even knowing your work I just remember you as very young sort of timid White boy why I knew you before I knew your work too because I remember seeing you on the David Letterman. Show shell when I was in high school and you were the funniest guest that he'd had and I thought who is this person because your work didn't appear in Omaha World World Herald or any of the Omaha papers at all but you were a personality that was clearly one to be contended with and you you clearly cannot flipped out the host of the show. I don't think he knew what I did. Honest held a gun to his head and just said why does she do uh-huh and there'd be on the other side of the wall because he wouldn't have known well then when I finally met you with partly you're talking about when I was in Chicago a you're the funniest person in impersonate ever remember me. Just laughing. At everything he said was true. I just sat there and giggled. Linda's work when I got to know it I I was not only surprised. Funny it was but it was maybe in the mid eighties or so and in the late eighties where you started really do serious storytelling retelling in your strips in completely knocked me over. I couldn't believe the stuff that she was getting at in her stories and strips and how deeply deeply felt it was. I was sure that it was all autobiography. Because if it was drawn with such conviction and even to say those words drawn with conviction didn't really apply to comics at that point and I was shocked to find out when I think I read an interview in the Comics Journal with you that it was fiction. Shen that you were writing and eight started stealing from you immediately because you had something that I so desperately wanted which was to be able to write something that felt real and felt like it was emotionally grounded and came from a point that was human which at that point in comics was almost unheard unheard of and I kind of from studying your stuff and trying to write stories about my own life. I found myself kind of channeling. Your Voice but through channel in your voice finding my own voice. You know who was who was a big influence for me was John. Wilson was nuts. That's your series. He he did nuts because it was in the national. It was the national lampoon but it took a childhood sadness seriously And it really had a big influence on me him and Dr Seuss. Whatever you think nuts you know? Oddly peanuts I never ever bonded or attached to peanuts. I don't know why I think it was too close to the sadness was a little bit too close. I'm you know I'm the Family Circus Lover which everybody but he just yeah? I'm the Family Circus Lover. I loved family circus but Peanuts was too sad for me Well what's warrantless is. Linda's new book is making comics and aside from being a marvelous assignment book. which which will take you from the childhood activity of drawing monsters all the way up to making comic books? I'm a big big fan of her book. One hundred teams in making comics. She says something that amounts to if if you're uncertain about something do it again and again and again and so the first two or three pages of making comics is devoted to different versions of one hundred demons. One hundred demons one hundred demons one hundred the demons and you see altogether. They make a beautiful gallery and a wonderful Kalash and VATS. When I discovered about Linda Barry is that her work is a collage of feeling of vision John of faces of forms of animals of monsters of demons? Tell the story again and again and again and again says Gertrude Stein and you will have told the story. And that's what makes the work. It seems to me so earnest funny but grab you by the scrub of the neck heart. Something I was thinking about how many books I've read for the second third or fourth time and had that experience. It's the same book but I'm seeing something I have never seen before and which can also also have everything to do with three other books read in between and suddenly those three other books put this prism and you can see this new kind of color combination And that's one of the things. I love most about books as kind of how their endless and Chris's book Rusty Brown is one of those ones that you can dwell in forever
