I’ve made the leap to a new podcast network and it’s a great one. We’ve teamed up with Nerdist, the multifaceted company founded by entrepreneurial stand-up comic and TV host Chris Hardwick. I’m joined by my trusty sidekick (and daughter) Jessie, who’s cohosted previous episodes with me. Our first guests are Roseanne Barr, the always-outspoken comedienne, and Eric Weinrib, whose adventures with the likes of Ken Kesey and Hunter S. Thompson (and ten years working with Michael Moore) made him an ideal director and collaborator for their documentary Roseanne for President!, now available on VOD. You can listen to our conversation HERE.

My podcast has evolved in a number of ways since it began in 2014. It now features a wide array of guests, whom I always ask to recommend unsung and underrated films they especially like.

New episodes will be posted on Fridays and you can subscribe for free HERE. Our first 84 shows, including the original ones I did with my partner Baron Vaughn, are still available on iTunes, also for free. Browse the list and I think you’ll find topics and people that will pique your interest.

Jessie and I will be recording a “live” episode this Friday at the San Diego Comic-Con. If you’re at Petco Park at 4pm come by and watch me with Doug Benson of Doug Loves Movies.

          I will always be grateful to the folks at Earwolf for giving me my start in the podcast world. I got to work with many terrific people there.

Now, in the immortal words of Jackie Gleason, “…and away we go!”

He teaches at the USC School of Cinematic Arts and appears regularly on Reelz Channel and Turner Classic Movies.
