Jay and Silent Bob Reboot (2019) (GUEST: Nathan Rabin Author of The Weird Accordion To Al and Co-Author of Postal)

Sequelcast 2 and Friends

Hosts Mat Bradley-Tschirgi, Thrasher, and Alex Miller discuss Jay and Silent Bob Reboot. They also interview Nathan Rabin on his new books The Weird Accordion to Al and Postal; the latter is co-written by Brock Wilbur. You can purchase The Weird Accordion to Al direct from Nathan via Paypal for $20 at nathanrabin@sbcglobal.net. You can purchase Postal from its publisher Boss Fight Books at https://bossfightbooks.com/products/postal-by-brock-wilbur-nathan-rabin.  Jay and Silent Bob Reboot mixes the stoner humor of the original with the sentimentality of Clerks 2. Sometimes it works. Sometimes it doesn't. Cameos abound as always. Things pick up when the crew arrives at Chronic Con. Jason Mewes gets dramatic material to chew on, which is a rarity. Kevin Smith's daughter Harley Quinn Smith has a major role in Milly; she's come a long way since her small role in Tusk.

We totally geek out and take the Radio Labyrinth time machine back to the very late 1970s and the 1980s. In those heady days, a hero was born to lead all of nerd-kind from out of the darkness: "Weird" Al Yankovic.  Nathan is the author of two Weird Al books (books), and was asked by Al himself to write them. The depths of Nathan's pop culture knowledge are vast and we hope to have him back to go even deeper into the labyrinth.  Check out his Steph-Recommended podcast and the links and social media below.  Buy Nathan Rabin's "The Weird Accordion to Al" HERE Check out Nathan's website.  https://www.nathanrabin.com Follow Nathan on Twitter. https://twitter.com/nathanrabin Nathin's Podcast: Travolta/Cage https://podcasts.apple.com/us/podcast/nathan-rabins-happy-cast/id1312945471 https://www.nathanrabin.com/happy-place/2019/11/4/introducing-travoltacage-the-podcast-the-column-the-legend Plus: Our Staff Picks, Jeff's: McMillions HBO / Steph's: Girl Scout Cookie Championship Food Network From Nathan's bio: "He’s also written five books: The Big Rewind, My Year Of Flops, Weird Al: The Book, You Don’t Know Me But You Don’t Like Me (which was named a “Best Book of the Year” by both Slate and Rolling Stone, which gave the book a four star review), and, most recently, 7 Days In Ohio: Trump, the Gathering of the Juggalos and the Summer Everything Went Insane, which was just released in a hugely expanded version. Rabin was also a panelist on Movie Club With John Ridley, a show hosted by Oscar-winning 12 Years A Slave screenwriter. He’s sung onstage with They Might Be Giants, attended five Gathering of the Juggalos and thirty-something Phish shows in addition to appearing on podcasts with the likes of Marc Maron, Scott Aukerman, Harris Wittels and the Sklar Brothers. He is currently a columnist at The A.V Club, Rotten Tomatoes, TCM Backlot and Splitsider and is working on a book about the video game and movie Postal and Donald Trump.
