retrorocketentertainment's podcast

I have had a few people ask me how I do the podcast and I figured instead of discussing it one on one that I would just record what I do and share it with everyone.

Video Night! Interviews John Lehr

Hey RetroRocketeers!  I have a grand interview with the Co-creator and Star of the Cult hits Quickdraw, Jailbait and 10 items or less.  I discuss his beginnings at ground zero of the new school of improv.  His early days with working with Noah Baumbach and co-starring with Christina Applegate on Jesse.   We deep dive into how his shows were made.  45 minutes with a man so nice and funny, it makes you think he may in fact secretly be burying drifters in his backyard.
