By The Way In Conversation With Jeff Garlin: J.J. Abrams

Jeff is mystified at how his pal J.J. Abrams finds the time to make films, speak at conferences, and be an amazing husband & father.

By The Way In Conversation with Jeff Garlin: Jeff Tweedy

Wilco frontman Jeff Tweedy is the inspiration behind Garlin’s venture into recording these candid conversations. The two Jeffs bond over their love of naps, the joy they get from hating things, and both having moments where their success could mean nothing to their high school peers. We also hear about Tweedy’s pure enjoyment of a certain reality TV show, the best display of anger he’s seen towards him onstage, and the nicest thing a stranger has said about his guitar playing.

By The Way, A Conversation With Jeff Garlin: Larry David

Curb Your Enthusiasm star Larry David admits he never would’ve agreed to this sort of malarky had Garlin not been such a close friend. Luckily for us, the magnetic misanthrope plays nicely with others, participating in audience games and revealing deep convictions without reservation. During this off-the-cuff chat, we learn why Larry 1. would prefer to do crossword puzzles than voluntarily listen to music, 2. feels nervous at a dinner table of 12, and 3. is overly strategic in the gifting of old shirts. And you won’t believe the one mundane thing that Larry has never before done in his life.
