Part 1 of my conversation with guest Matt Phillion about society's obsession with celebrity. I've also got music from The Wytches, Aan and Little Racer.

Show notes:

- Celebrity deaths

- Jay: Robin Williams' death hit me hard

- We don't have royalty so celebs fill that role

- Getting rich doesn't necessarily equal happiness

- Americans are surprisingly fascinated by the British royal family

- Dealing with fans could get annoying after a while

- Matt was at Boston ComiCon hyping his book

- Check out his YA superhero novel The Indestructibles

- Saw some minor celebs like Jason Momoa and John Barrowman

- What do you say to an actor or musician you admire?

- Matt met Susan Sarandon while working at Museum of Science

- Jay: Met my favorite hockey player and I was a dork

- Many movies filmed around here and people flock to watch

- People will do anything to get onscreen

- Worked with a guy who was on a short-lived reality show

- Matt went to college with actor Charlie Day

- The lameness of celeb interviews during sports telecasts

- To be continued

 

Music:

The Wytches - Digsaw

Aan - Spiritual Provisions

Little Racer - Dancing
