Welcome to the first official episode of The Badasscast, the much-clamored-for podcast from Badass Digest. I don't know how often this podcast will run - at least every two weeks, I hope - but for now enjoy the crunchy goodness.
This first episode is all business. I was lucky enough to sit down with Paul Feig, creator of Freaks and Geeks and director of Bridesmaids, and so I decided to share that conversation with you good people. I hope you like.
In this interview we discuss what a female comedy means, how cringe-inducingly painful you can get while still being a comedy, how far you can take a lead character into being a fuck up before you lose the audience and, of course, Freaks and Geeks.
This episode will be up on iTunes (eventually), but for now you can listen in your browser below, or click here to download the file and listen on your favorite device.
