On the latest episode of the Talkhouse Film Podcast, friends, filmmakers and fellow humanists Shannon Plumb and Azazel Jacobs get up close and personal. Snuggled in bed in a room at the Lower East Side Ludlow Hotel, the pair share a unique rapport that translates to their fascination with the human condition and the deeper understanding of human beings that informs their work. The freewheeling conversation includes how Jacobs tapped into his comedic side for his new film The Lovers, starring Debra Winger and Tracy Letts, and then transcends space and time, delving into Lenny Bruce, the Clash and the possible existence of space babies.

On the latest episode of the Talkhouse Film Podcast, two of the funniest (and also most underappreciated) comedians around, Todd Barry and Chris Gethard, sit down for a conversation at Sonos' flagship store at 101 Greene Street in New York City. The two multihyphenates talk about their myriad projects, including Barry's newly published book Thank You for Coming to Hattiesburg, Gethard's one-person show Career Suicide (which hits HBO later this month), the Webby Gethard just won for his podcast, but focus most of their conversation on the minutiae that is the very stuff of comics' lives: clothing choices, frequent flyer miles, college gigs, life on the road.
