The Good Podcast

Recommended Posts

Well, it’s no Entourage movie podcast, but Marc is filling the long hiatus between seasons with interviews with celebrity fans of the show, starting with Busy Philipps. He’s also asked for guest suggestions on his twitter.

I’m probably checking my ticket to the bad place with this comment, but I wish “my family and my charity” were banned as answers to “what’s good?” That takes all the cleverness and lightheartedness out of the conversation. Those answers should be taken as a given— I want to know what ELSE is good.

I think more celebs will go on the podcast because they can name drop their charity, so it doesn't bother me. But I do love when they add something else to the "What's Good" portion

I'm sure this makes me a cold-hearted person, but I really don't give a crap about celebrities, celebrity culture, or their interests. I had never heard of Busy Philipps before this podcast, and by looking at her IMDB page, I have seen a few things she's in, but I have no recollection of her at all.

I appreciate the Podcast folks' hard work putting additional episodes together so we, as fans, have more info to listen to, but having celebrities talk about themselves is of no interest to me. Sorry to be such a Debbie Downer everyone.

I look forward to seeing what else they can come up with. Overall, I think this podcast is excellent.

Round two of the celebrity guest podcast was a massive improvement and a fun listen. It helped that the guest (1) had a tie to the show and (2) didn’t sneer about not listening to podcasts. And they even separated “what’s good?” from “pimp your charity” which made me very happy! (And more likely to keep his charities of choice in mind.)

Mike O'Malley guests on the latest version (7/31). He briefly mentions being up against Nick Offerman for the part of Ron Swanson on Parks and Recreation. Worth a listen.

"briefly mentions"?  Haha.  More like, "can't let it go".  I think he was kidding.

The watch Marc mentions in last week's mini-episode.  I love the idea that Michael Schur asked the writers room if they could punch up the engraving but they couldn't.

Is anyone still listening to this? Today's was about as disappointing as it could be -- all of the heart and playfullness it used to have is gone. And there were TWO Bayer commercials dropped in out of nowhere. Really really disappointing.

I didn't get any commercials. I listen on spotify. I still listen and still like it.

I love it! The Podcast makes me feel like I'm watching the show with other people since no one I know watches this show. Prior to the last couple of episodes, this season was "meh" for me. However when I listened to each Podcast episode, I would laugh, cry, and generally get emotional when they were breaking down each episode. The overall experience of the show combined with the Podcast has made me appreciate the show overall so much more.

To break up the hiatus, bonus podcast episode with Marc sitting down with some of the writers (Jen Statsky, Joe Mande, Dan Schofield and Lizzy Pace).

It was really interesting today, but also sad and a dose of reality for these guys. Kristen, Ted and Mike are all rich and the actors all now have had enough exposure where they can develop careers. But to the people behind the scenes, the end of the show means the end of their job. None of them were whining, but you could feel a lot more aprehension in their voices than had been there before. They get to be proud of their work, but now they have to find something else. Some of them had jobs -- to some of them a pretty big step down (one of them was now on AP Bio, which is streaming on the Peacock. It's a show with moments, but it ain't this) -- and others were literally available for hire. It was a rough and bittersweet reminded just how temporary all these things are. 

I wish them well.

Double episode, over three hours total for the series finale, with Marc (he played Shawn) talking with Mike Schur and Drew Goddard. Lots of stuff there, including details on various scenes that were cut or changed. Almost hard to believe that at one point they had Chidi explicitly explain what was on the other side of the final door, and in the second last episode.

Two great episodes. Schur is so smart and thoughtful. And Marc Evan Jackson liked one of my tweets!

I'm glad Ted Danson will be doing something else. 

One of my channels was showing CSI reruns, I completely forgot he was on that show!
