The SportsAlcohol.com Podcast: Greta Gerwig and Noah Baumbach

Greta Gerwig and Noah Baumbach have collaborated on three movies, and this fall they’re both back with their own solo movies: Gerwig’s Lady Bird, which is expanding into more theaters this Thanksgiving weekend, and Baumbach’s The Meyerowitz Stories (New and Selected), which is available to all Netflix subscribers. Marisa, Sara, Nathaniel, and Jesse watched both movies (as well as plenty of past work from both filmmakers) and then got together to discuss how they function together, how they function apart, and what we think of their new projects. Learn all about our thoughts on Gerwig behind the camera in various capacities, who loved and who hated Baumbach’s semi-lost movie Highball, the age dynamics of While We’re Young, what we thought of Nights and Weekends, the Gerwig/Joe Swanberg movie Jesse made everyone watch before recording, how Baumbach fits with Adam Sandler (who stars in Meyerowitz), and whether what used to be written off as a bad summer could now potentially turn into a bad life.

How To Listen

We are now up to SIX (6) different ways to listen to a SportsAlcohol podcast:

Jesse

Jesse is a cofounder of SportsAlcohol.com even though he doesn't care for sports or alcohol. His favorite movie is Ron Howard's The Paper. I think. This is what happens when you don't write your own bio. I know for sure likes pie.
  • Bennett Morrison

    You are all Otises.

    If there is ever a “best of SportsAlcohol.com podcast” clip show, it should include Sara’s reaction to Highball.

    Also, was Lena Dunham moderating the Kicking and Screaming panel? I thought it was Klosterman?

    • jesse

      OOOOHH FUCK I think it was Klosterman. BLEECCCH. Maybe Dunham moderated a Last Days of Disco panel.

  • Bennett Morrison

    Wait! I’m name checked on this one!

    “Ben feels like he’s being picked on all the time,” Nathaniel says, picking on me!

    (I’m listening to this at work, laughing. And my colleagues are wondering what’s up with me.)
