On the latest episode of the Talkhouse Podcast, we continue our series of episodes recorded live at Sonos’ flagship store in Soho NYC with a hilarious conversation between Mr Show and Arrested Development‘s David Cross and two of his longtime friends, comedian and hip-hop star Jean Grae and Fabrizio Moretti, the drummer from the Strokes and Little Joy. Over the course of a hilarious and thoroughly unpredictable conversation, the trio talk about David going into an old people’s home, the ills of social media, Jean’s inability to ride a bike, the mysterious “gum incident,” the movie and musical of Newsies, conspiracy theories, jobs they were fired from … and David and Fab give Jean an opportunity to prove her talents at the last job she was fired from: a phone sex operator.
