Here is a picture of Peter Matthew Bauer in the Jack White Room at Rough Trade taken right after the interview. Subscribe to the show and check out our talk tomorrow, which ranges from discussions of mysticism and religion to Peter’s high school band with fellow Walkmen dude Hamilton Leithauser.
Cool and interesting episode with Peter Matthew Bauer, late of the band The Walkmen. We recorded this in the Jack White room at Rough Trade in Williamsburg, a little bit before Peter hit the stage. A lot of his youth was spent on an ashram in India, and in this clip, we talk about what happened when the original guru died. Check out the full interview on Thursday, July 24th and subscribe too!
Hey look, a picture of Jason Nash taken right in my own hallway! Jason is on Beginnings tomorrow, and it’s a weird and fun episode that has lots o’ goofs and lots of good conversation. If you miss it, I think you will be all the poorer for doing so. Check it out tomorrow and, fuck, why not subscribe so you don’t miss it?
Hey! Here’s a fun exchange that happens on Thursday’s show between me and Jason. Look at those riffs. Pure. Like a mountain stream. Look for more fun like this on Thursday! (and also subscribe!).
This is one of the weirdest episodes of Beginnings, as a good deal of the time talking to Jason Nash was spent on discussing misogyny in comedy, and that includes a very weird metaphor by yours truly comparing male privilege to general relativity. Jason was a really cool and empathetic person, and in this clip we do talk about his family, as well as his dad’s dealings with the mob. Check it out and hear the whole thing this Thursday, July 17th (and also subscribe!).
Here is a picture taken of Anthony King, under a light in my house. Anthony is on this week’s Beginnings. He lives in LA, but was here for a few months to write for the second season of Broad City. One of my favorite things we talked about is how Anthony grew up Pentecostal, and he explains to me what it means to be “slain in the spirit”. Want to know what that means? Subscribe to the show and listen to the episode tomorrow!
Anthony King is a writer for shows like Broad City and Playing House. Before that though, he was the artistic director of UCB NY when I was just starting out taking classes there, and therefore I was afraid of him and never had a real conversation. Too bad, because he’s awesome, and I had an amazing time talking to him on the show. We chatted about religion (he was raised Pentecostal), North Carolina culture, the death of his mother, and more. Anthony’s a thoughtful and funny guy, and I love this episode. Be sure and check out the full show this Thursday, July 10th and subscribe!
