In this very "B"-centric culture catchup, Matt & Bowen discuss Bros as a movie, a press event and a box office story, Smile's success and its star Sosie Bacon, Björk's newest album Fossora, "it justifies the beans", RHOSLC and RHOP, "fuchsia" as both color and word, Beyoncé edging us all with ver visuals for Renaissance, and Rihanna's announcement that she is the next Super Bowl halftime performer. All this, dream setlists for that halftime performance, stunning vocals, honest admissions, laughter, joy, discussion and podcasting at its finest.See for privacy information.
Spooky season! It's here. Haunted houses are jamming up, the wind is howling and Los Espookys is back on HBO. Ana Fabrega & Julio Torres, the creators of the program, join Matt & Bow to discuss casting Kim Petras as the U.S. Secretary of State, how "And Just Like That" is truly international, music video acting, being in your "circus era", the reality of directing, the spectacle that is The Press Tour and how modern weddings should have more drama. Also, treatises on the status of television, the taste of medicine and the dexterity of statues. See for privacy information.
In the three years since our guest’s last visit, Matt and Bow’s octaves may have dropped, but the quality of their conversation with the legendary actor and now-author Betty Gilpin has NOT! The boys waste no time heaping (deserved) praise onto Betty and her new book “All the Women in My Brain,” which you must read and listen to as your Kantian imperative. The three talk about smoke allergies, smoke and MIRRORS, and smoking too much weed during boarding school. Special attention is paid to “The Thing,” an abstract yet undeniable phenomenon that Betty outlines perfectly and which collapses all boundaries for better or worse (i.e. choreography engendering fraternity). All the right questions are asked, including “Does God exist now that Betty has a child?” and “Will Matt sit through a horror film for an actress tour de force?” Many, of course, are answered. Stay till the end for three fab IDTSHs, or else Bowen will stab you in silks.See for privacy information.

Then, they are joined by network sisters Matt Rogers and Bowen Yang to address the two pillars of straight comedy: awkwardness and randomness.

So I listen a lot and I hear the declarations you make based on your best guesses and shrug. It’s okay. Now you’ve made me have to go Boomer on you. It’s widely known that “Imagine” was not written in California but at Tittenhurst Park in England. Many films show it all happening. As for the dismissal of “Imagine there’s no heaven” as the murmurings of an LSD trip, NO. In 1971 it’s almost a miracle that got airplay. It was sacrilege. Some respect is in order.

I keep coming back to this podcast. It is hard to follow, though. Talks to fast, not clear, over talk, sounds alike. Steps on names. Who is that laughing like a dolphin?
