Also, we’re hiring! If you’d like to apply to be the production assistant for the Culture Gabfest, please send a cover letter with two suggestions for topics to email@example.com.
Dana: Werner Herzog is in his somber, elegiac mode with The Fire Within: A Requiem for Katia and Maurice Krafft. Not to be confused with Fire of Love, about the same people, but made by Sara Dosa.
Julia: Endorsing the third season of Never Have I Ever. It’s such a good show. Sometimes I take for granted the variety of things being made.
Stephen: Two things: 1. I am comically late on Better Call Saul. 2. Sam Gendel is a young L.A. jazz guy with a DGAF attitude towards even the music he makes, in a weird way. The album is called blueblue. Just amazing.
Podcast production by Cameron Drews. Production assistance by Yesica Balderrama.
Outro music: “Last Sunday” by OTE
