“Undeniably Essential” (w/ Ari Shapiro)
Good moods abound on Las Cultch this week as Matt & Bowen welcome true renaissance man, host of NPR’s All Things Considered and now author of the wonderful new book The Best Strangers In The World, THEE Ari Shapiro! The host with the most gets together with the gals who host this pro-gig economy podcast to talk “this is from my garden…” culture, performing with magic men Alan Cumming and Henry Koperski, Obama as chill president with razor bumps, PBS performances of Into The Woods and Sunday In The Park With George, Ari’s familial connection to Mandy Patinkin, Sweeney Todd and “Steve” Sondheim, Traitors, The Mole, journalistic responsibility during national tragedy, obituary culture, and bringing personal perspective to the stories that Ari reports. All that and just a bissle on The Eras Tour, metallic bookmarks and the trial of the century: Gwyneth vs. The Skiier.
