Live Goods: Humans From Earth Podcast w/ Joe and Anthony Russo
Humans From Earth is one of Nerdist's latest podcasts. At WonderCon, Chris Hardwick mentioned they were going from 26 current programs to something like 50. Taking place in the cozy Spielberg theatre inside the Egyptian theatre, writer/actor/director Jon Favreau kicked off the podcast series and ran 20 minutes late into Captain America: The Winter Soldier directors Joe and Anthony Russo's slot. Being their first time out, the show has some kinks to work out such as the online ticket sales not working, the guest line up not being announced until the day before, our session started late but then ended on time thus cutting 20 minutes out of the advertised 60 minutes and so on.
Beyond that, there were some tidbits about Easter Eggs in the movie as the Brothers believe it's better to have them than not. Their prop team is responsible for most, such as the jar of Newman's own pasta sauce in Redford's refrigerator. The comic loving Russo cited The Winter Soldier run of comics as it's Dark Knight era and how important Frank Miller's work was to him in the 80's. It was a fun 40 minutes and would definitely attend again if the guest list piqued interest. Boucher invited the audience to stay for the next podcast featuring Fanboys director Kyle Newman but we were off to Glendale to see Bob Peak and Drew Struzan's movie poster exhibit!
