This is currently my new favorite podcast, and it’s called “I Was There Too”
If you’re like Matt Gourley (Superego, Drunk History, James Bonding), then you know all the classic movie and television scenes so well it’s like you were in the room when they happened. Well, you weren’t. And neither was he. But the people Matt interviews were! Listen in as they tell the inside stories of how cinema and television history was made from a fly-on-the-wall perspective you’ve never heard.

Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee is arguably my favorite series on the internet.
Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee is an American comedy web series by comedian Jerry Seinfeld. The series is broadcast on the Internet and premiered on July 19, 2012. The show is supported by digital network Crackle.
The episodes which normally run anywhere between 12 to 18 minutes featured by Acura, are casual and intimate conversations with Seinfeld and his chosen funny man or woman. The personalities are not limited to stand-up comics alone, actor and all around funny guy Alec Baldwin appeared in season one and radio personality Howard Stern is featured in season three. The other key components that make up the series are the collection of cars that can range from ordinary to extraordinary; a 1995 Volvo 960 station wagon to a 1969 Lamborghini Miura P400S to the pop culture and iconic “Back to the Future” time machine, 1981 DeLorean DMC-12.
The process for each episode and Seinfeld’s interactions with each guest can produce up to an hour or more of footage that is condensed highlighting the finest bits. The shows format is unscripted and true to its name, Seinfeld picks up a comedian in his carefully selected car and they drive around and get coffee. There are of course laughs, but the most attractive element is the rapport with people who respect one another and their craft; a neat look inside talented individuals and their spontaneity together.
Some of the guests on his show include:
and Sarah Jessica Parker
