Movie Meltdown - Episode 339

This week we sit down with Jimmy Pardo and talk about the basics of podcasting. From the early days when no one knew what it was (unlike now when just MOST people don't know what it is), to the current era when seemingly everyone has their own show. Plus we discuss some of Jimmy's other endeavors like his big scene in Dreamgirls, going on auditions, working on different sitcoms... and even the forgotten past that he shares with our own Lucy. Will his former life come back to haunt him??


And while we all measure our lives against the amazing life of Yaphet Kotto, we also discuss... Matt Belknap, Chicago, Keke Palmer, The Galt House Hotel has 25 floors, Almost There, architecture talk, Edie McClurg, game show nerds, Ted Danson, advertising, Beta tape, directing Curb Your Enthusiasm, Mad Men, BatKid Begins, faking the moon landing, Scott Aukerman, Bill Condon, a live stream going out torturing a clueless actor, the height of narcissism, The Match Game, the comedy boom, Running Your Trap, an independent lingerie company, Kevin James, F is for Fake, Donald Trump, That 70's Show, you guys work every day... you go to a job interview everyday - and you're told 'no'... every day, Dennis Miller, Bart Braverman, live your dream, I'm in make-up for 18 hours, The Finest Hours, don't understand politics, Race to Escape, Alec Baldwin, Anika Rose, Conan O'Brien, shark podcasting, conspiracy theorists, a recipe to make blank, auditioning for commercials, Ty Burrell, Becker, The Revenant, you don't have the rights to this... stop doing it, April Richardson, the lighting people lit for the dance scene, Marcia Wallace and Pardcast-a-thon.


"Typical Hollywood story... I got there at like four in the morning. And I literally have one line."
