EP.70 - GARTH JENNINGS & WES ANDERSON

Adam travels to Paris to meet his old friend, British director Garth Jennings. After a brief catch up, Garth introduces Adam to his old friend, and fellow Paris dweller, Wes Anderson of Texas, USA.

The conversation was recorded in early March 2018 shortly before the release of Anderson’s 9th feature, and 2nd foray into stop motion (after Fantastic Mr Fox) Isle Of Dogs.

Set in a dystopian near-future Japan, Isle Of Dogs follows a young boy who goes in search of his dog after the whole species is banished to an island due to an illness outbreak.

Adam, Garth and Wes enjoy a rambly chat about the production of Isle of Dogs and stop motion in general, David Bowie (of course), Mary Poppins, cantankerous cast members and other important odds and sods.

Applaud you for supporting MSF but when you said ‘free spice’ did you mean the highly addictive and leathal synthetic marijuana?!

Hey there Mr Buxton sir.... Great episode as per the usual. Loving your work. You have, via the medium of casting pods, introduced me to some fantastic artists, whome of which I may never have heard otherwise. Artist that now reside snugly on my playlist.. if you ever get 30mins free. Check out my podcast that I do with my fellow compadrès. We discover lesser know music by lesser known artists, that we believe are as good as that of the mainstream. https://m.soundcloud.com/user-849741148/episode-1 Also. if you don't listen and pass it on to ten people you will be cursed with a mild cold.
