On this week’s show, Emmy-nominated actor Colin Hanks tries to get kids to believe that math is cool (it does not go well), singer/songwriter Father John Misty portrays a Fridge Raccoon, and Wikihow Theater shows how to make people respect your pet. Plus, the story of how Prince melted Minneapolis into existence and music from Father John Misty.
Colin Hanks has quickly become one of Hollywood’s most sought-after actors. His natural talent and raw energy have secured him a place as one of Hollywood’s young leading men. Colin was nominated for an Emmy and the Critics Choice Television Awards for his role in FX’s critically acclaimed mini-series “Fargo.” Prior to “Fargo,” Colin made several memorable guest appearances on the popular crime series “NCIS,” “Burning Love,” and the Golden Globe and Emmy Award winning series’, “Dexter” and “Mad Men.” On the silver screen, he was most recently seen in the historical drama Parkland and The Guilt Trip alongside Seth Rogen and Barbara Streisand, and he recently wrapped production on No Stranger than Love, a romantic comedy with Alison Brie and Justin Chatwin.
Josh Tillman has been recording/releasing solo albums since 2003 and drummed for Fleet Foxes for four years. In 2012, he released the critically acclaimed album Fear Fun under the name Father John Misty. The album consists of such disparate elements as Waylon Jennings, Harry Nilsson, Arthur Russell, "All Things Must Pass," and “Physical Graffiti,” often within the same song. Lyrically, his absurdist fever dreams of pain and pleasure elicit, in equal measures, the blunt descriptive power of Bukowski or Brautigan, the hedonist-philosophy of Oscar Wilde and the dried-out wit of Loudon Wainwright III.
