On the occasion of the episode becoming a Webby Award honoree, Talkhouse podcast producer Elia Einhorn and Talkhouse Film's Editor-in-Chief Nick Dawson revisit the very special conversation from 2016 between hip-hop star, actor and longtime Pee-wee Herman fan Kid Cudi and Pee-wee himself, Paul Reubens. In addition to the full original talk between the two — which touches on how they first met, Reubens' journey to bring Pee-wee Herman back to the big screen, Cudi's strong dislike of skunks (and recent encounter with a mountain lion), and a discussion by both of future creative projects — you get to listen to the full backstory of how this unlikely episode came together.
