Neil deGrasse Tyson, Feist, Fleet Foxes, a talking wolf named Nick Offerman, and more join us on an audio odyssey designed to reacquaint you with the wonders of nature! Hosts Brendan and Rico -- two city slickers -- stumble their way through the great outdoors (and outer space!), gleaning wisdom from unexpected sources.
This week, instead of a rerun, we're serving up a Dinner for One special with one of the most celebrated character actors ever -- Giancarlo Esposito. Plus, get a little taste of next week's "Look Up and Listen!" audio adventure and a sneak peek at our chat with "Glow" and "Mad Men" actress Alison Brie.
Encore Broadcast: Oscar-nominee Saoirse Ronan sharpens her skills in Broadway's Crucible... Actor-and-author Cameron Diaz gives us impeccable advice -- for the long haul... A new doc paints a portrait of David Hockney, an artist both bright and blue... One-man-band Kevin Morby recommends a few other artists (and BBQ masters) who went solo... Comedian-on-the-rise Solomon Georgio recalls his low point... And we toast "Queen Bess" -- the African-American pilot who blazed a (con)trail before Amelia Earhart did. Plus, a cure for cell phone zombie-ism, a new funk-tastic track, and some horseplay.
Showrunner supreme Damon Lindelof ("Lost," "The Leftovers") hops into Rico's hot tub time machine, then considers the paradoxes of fandom... The band Phoenix toasts a purring Bryan Ferry, video games in Japan, and the sounds of le cinema... We pay tribute to late great sportswriter Frank DeFord, who throws us some etiquette curveballs... Musician Lynn Castle recalls her proposal from a certain Phil Spector... And we learn about Gertrude of Arabia (sorry Lawrence)! Plus, naked school, Pluto's origins, and a tasty joke from Tituss Burgess.
