MREs Are Delicious! w/ Luke Barats!

Luke Barats

Our guest this week is Luke Barats and he will leave you behind if you break your leg and is the only guy I know who genuinely loves MREs. Did you know some come with Skittles?! We both realize as city dwellers we are not prepared for bio-terrorism and Deep Impact comes up again two episodes in a row but I personally think Luke doesn't realize how un-meantally prepared he is for an asteroid and that neither of us are prepared for the majesty that are Elijah Wood's eyes. Enjoy the show! Don't forget to find us on Facebook and tell your friends! It's not "if" but "when"!

Boy howdy, our bodies are simply no longer capable of consuming three hours of this television show in one sitting. Like, our nervous system violently rejects exposure to that much unfiltered Bachelor. Still, we weathered the storm to bring you this sleepy, penultimate episode of Nick's season!

Danny McBride on Writing Dark Comedy, Returning to High School, and Playing the Antihero

Danny McBride is a comedic writer and actor who started his career starring in the cult classic comedy, The Foot Fist Way. Although the film went to Sundance and was a modest success, McBride went back to North Virginia to work as a substitute teacher. Danny and frequent collaborator Jody Hill began creating the series Eastbound & Down, which would jumpstart McBride’s career and make him a film and television star.

He has appeared in a number of comedies, such as Tropic Thunder, 30 Minutes or Less, and Observe and Report. McBride is perhaps best known for writing and starring in the HBO series Eastbound & Down, where he plays disgraced MLB player, Kenny Powers.

McBride sat down with Jesse to talk about about working with Jody Hill, writing for Eastbound and Down, and dealing with people who idolize Kenny Powers just a little too much.

The second season of Vice Principals is out this summer.

Miroslav Vitous on the Recording Session that Changed His Life

Jazz bassist Miroslav Vitouš explains how working with Weather Report on the composition "Morning Lake" is an experience he will never forget.

Miroslav Vitouš's new album is called Music of Weather Report.

The Outshot: The Hunt For The Wilderpeople
