This week: a look back at some of our favorite interviews in past years.

The Venture Bros' Co-Creator Jackson Publick on The Space Race, Motherless Characters, and Affectionate Parody

This interview originally aired in 2007.

Jackson Publick is the co-creator of the Cartoon Network [adult swim] series The Venture Bros. The show just returned for a fifth season, after a multi-year hiatus. The series is a sometimes bizarre, often surprisingly heartfelt parody of the boys' adventure genre.

Publick talks about the space race, creating affectionate parodies, and the loss of his mother (and how it shaped the fictional world of The Venture Bros).

The Venture Bros. airs Sundays at midnight on Cartoon Network's [adult swim].

Jason Kottke on Children-by-Mail and a Physics Thought Experiment

This segment originally aired in January 2013.

Jason Kottke, proprietor of Kottke.org, a collection of some of the most interesting links the internet has to offer, joins us this week to share some all-time internet picks. First, he enlightens us about the practice of sending children through the mail. He also shares a mind-bending physics thought experiment -- if an airplane moves forward on a conveyor belt that's moving in the opposite direction at the same speed, can the airplane take off?

Pop Culture Advice with My Brother, My Brother and Me

This segment originally aired in February 2012.

Our resident pop culture advice columnists, the McElroy brothers of My Brother, My Brother and Me take on questions about movie posters as art, what happens when you judge a child's abominable TV watching choices, and more.

Motörhead's Lemmy on The Beatles, Drugs, and Creating a Signature Sound

A cut of our 2010 interview with Lemmy Kilmister at South by Southwest. Click through to see video and hear a longer cut of this interview.

Lemmy, the frontman of Motörhead, is a legend to metalheads worldwide. We spoke to him as a documentary about his life premiered at South by Southwest. Lemmy talks to us about seeing The Beatles for the very first time, how dropping acid brought him a new awareness of himself, and creating his own signature bass sound.

Lemmy, the documentary about his life from directors Wes Orshoski and Greg Olliver, is available now on DVD and Blu-ray. A new album from Motörhead is due this September.

The Outshot: Digable Planets’ Blowout Comb

This segment originally aired in June 2012.

For The Outshot this week, Jesse highlights the relaxed, harmonious hip hop sound of Digable Planets' revolutionary but commercially disastrous 1994 record Blowout Comb.
Blowout Comb has just been reissued by Light in the Attic on limited edition vinyl.

Freaks and Geeks from Donald Glover

  • The video for Donald Glover's single off his EP out next month is making the rounds as of today -- check out the pop-culture laced rhymes of "Freaks and Geeks" above. (Lyrics are NSFW, so you know.) He's also just announced a string of national tourdates for the IAmDonald tour.

  • The excellent documentary Lemmy, about Motorhead frontman Lemmy Kilmister is out now on DVD, and I believe you'll find our interviews from last year's South by Southwest film festival with Lemmy and filmmakers Greg Olliver and Wes Orshoski in the (packed) bonus section!

  • Kyle Kinane, of our our Best Comedy of 2010 picks, has a Comedy Central Presents special premiering tonight at 11/10 Central. Set your DVRs (or better yet, just stay in and watch it).

  • Check out Matt Walsh and other past guests (like David Malki !) on this scripted sci-fi comedy podcast called Better Radio.

Lemmy on The Sound of Young America: The Outtakes

| 0 comments

I've posted one outtake from our interview with Lemmy on the Monsters of Podcasting Tumblr, but I thought I'd save this one for the MaxFunBlog.

We did the interview in the basement bar of Stubb's in Austin; they were sound checking on the stage about 50 feet away. This outtake's called "Genuine Motorhead Feedback."
