Adam Lippe on MindDogTV on October 20th, 2020, filling in for a no-show guest.

If you want to see the video version of this podcast, you can find it here.
Adam Lippe on the Everything Imaginable podcast, co-hosting, and primarily interviewing Liz Priestly, co-star of the upcoming Idris Elba vehicle Concrete Cowboy. Hear in quite a bit of detail about the Philadelphia film and theater community, auditioning classes, Black cowboys in film and in real life, adapting the book that the film is based on, the director’s previous films, the distribution issues with the film, etc. This interview was released on October 21st, 2020, but the film was picked up by Netflix in the meantime. Wait, Wait, Don’t Kill Me does come up but only in the context of working in Philadelphia and the fact that it was shot mere miles from Concrete Cowboy.
Adam Lippe on “A Little bit of Everything With Me!” released on October 22nd, 2020. This was recorded in August, and it was mostly is about the making of Wait, Wait, Don’t Kill Me, as well as Angelica’s insistence that Adam write a book about the making of the film.
Adam Lippe on the “Mental Health Film Comment” podcast, discussing Todd Haynes’ Safe. Wait, Wait, Don’t Kill Me and the Laemmle Theater streaming premiere comes up for a few minutes, but this is otherwise entirely about Safe, the style, the choices by Haynes, the mental illness issues that are relevant in the film (specifically what Julianne Moore goes through), and other matters.
Adam Lippe back on MindDog TV on October 22nd, 2020. This interview is nominally about Wait, Wait, Don’t Kill Me but drifts into a host of other subjects. You can watch the video version of the interview here.
Adam Lippe on the Extra Features Podcast from October 23rd, 2020. No spoilers, necessarily, but this is a film critic, having already seen the movie, asking very specific questions about the decisions made by the filmmakers, so it goes in an atypical direction considering the tenor of most of the interviews already posted.
Adam Lippe on the Everything Imaginable podcast from October 23rd, 2020, promoting the Laemmle Theaters virtual release of Wait, Wait, Don’t Kill Me. This is a bit more laid back than some of the other interviews and goes on some tangents.
Adam Lippe on the Color Me in Podcast from October 25th, 2020. This interview is about the creative process, while also promoting Wait, Wait, Don’t Kill Me.
Adam Lippe on the Movie Battle Podcast, discussing Ron Howard’s Mel Gibson vehicle Ransom, and defending it against the 2008/2009 Liam Neeson vehicle Taken. This is an unorthodox podcast, because Adam stumps for a version of a movie that’s only available on laserdisc, but does so passionately and still finds time to undermine Taken after it is defended by a different person who is there to “battle.”
