Robbie tells a story where he took it too far and Griffin tells the story of when he opened for Mr. Turkey. Griffin wants to hear the boys opinions on bagels. Sebastian thinks some bagel places have too big of an ego. They wonder how much the NYC water actually effects the final product of pizza or bagels. Check out Griffin's movie podcast Blank Check!

Bonus Patreon 2009: Fast and Furious w/ Griffin Newman
Podcast Like It's 1999
Widely considered one of the worst in the franchise, we break down why this movie only gets better with age, acting as a bridge between what the franchise was, and what it will eventually become. We discuss how Justin Lin and Vin Diesel were able to create a franchise purely for the fans, the series' insane naming conventions, the importance of the roles each cast member fills, and ponder what the future holds for Fast & Furious post Dominic Toretto. Plus, we discuss the recently released F9, and how it connects all the way back to Fast & Furious!Find Griffin at: twitter.com/grifflightningPodcast Like It's 1999: podcasts.apple.com/us/podcast/podcast-like-its-1999Twitter: twitter.com/podcastlike1999Instagram: instagram.com/podcastlike1999Reddit: reddit.com/r/podcastlikeits Hosted on Acast.

108: Dreamcatcher with Blank Check's Griffin Newman and David Sims
Dreamcatcher is one of Stephen King's least favorite of his own novels, but how does it stack up with the co-hosts of a very popular film podcast? This story of a group of childhood friends battling an extra-terrestrial menace with psychic powers and a little help from their deeply problematic friend, Duddits, should have been a non-stop pinata party, but there are some surprise fans in the mix for this discussion.

Depresh Mode with John Moe
You’ll notice that this episode is longer than most of our episodes. That’s just the way it tends to go with Griffin Newman. Episodes of his own podcast, Blank Check, regularly clock in at more than two hours. He acts in films and those often top two hours as well. And although he’s only in his thirties, Griffin has had a long career, growing up in a showbiz-adjacent family and starting in standup while not yet out of middle school. We hear how he quit acting (several times) and always got pulled back in, sometimes for dream-come-true roles like Arthur in The Tick, sometimes for experiences that ended up being nightmares, like acting in and then deeply regretting acting in a Woody Allen movie. Griffin Newman examines the roles that depression and anxiety played in his life decisions and where one can see them poking out in his performances.Listen to Blank Check with Griffin & David on the podcatcher of your choice.
