Episode 31 – Scott Aukerman on Carl Reiner and Mel Brooks at the Cannes Film Festival

Improvised interviews.  They’re nothing new, but Carl Reiner and Mel Brooks perfected it as an art form.  They made a number of albums as interviewer and interviewee, and the current generation of podcasters owes them a huge debt.

This week, we speak with none other than Scott Aukerman.  Host of the Comedy Bang! Bang! podcast and upcoming TV show, as well as a writer for Mr. Show and director of Between Two Ferns, Scott’s work on his podcast network is clearly influenced by Carl and Mel’s best work.  He and his insanely brilliant guests improvise long-form host/guest pieces that will usually blow your mind.  Listen in to exactly why Scott thinks you need to sit down and given this album a listen.
