Corey Feldman and I were born two days apart in the same year, so I’ve always felt a bit of a connection to him, especially growing up and watching him in 80s classics like “The Goonies” and “Gremlins.” We talked about our star sign similarities and then discussed his music career (and how Weird Al Yankovic was a huge influence in how to write concise lyrics) and his new double album, “Angelic 2 The Core.”Follow @bigwakeupcall
Scott Aukerman remains our #1 favorite guest of all of our all-time favorite guests, and we had a fun chat about Season 5 of Comedy Bang! Bang!, which premieres with back-to-back episodes tonight at 11/10c on IFC. Scott discussed what we’ll see tonight (and on every subsequent episode this season — the interview got rather lengthy), shared some memories of the CBB Podcast World Tour (traveling together on individual Partridge Family buses), and opened up about his working relationship with his new bandleader Weird Al Yankovic (Scott may or may not have said that Al is “an inveterate liar” who “can’t tell the truth”). Listen for the shocking details!
