Not Necessarily The Nose: Holy Shirtballs, This Is 'The Good Place'

Jan 25, 2019

Where We Live producer Carmen Baskauf has been badgering us to do a show about The Good Place for months on end at this point. (It's gotten kind of weird, to be honest. We're a little worried about Carmen, to be honest.)

Partly to get her off our back, partly because The Good Place really is "a sitcom that's also a profound work of philosophy," and partly because its Season Three season finale aired last night, this hour we're finally doing a show about The Good Place.

Web extra: Producer Jonathan McNicol takes a longish look at the language and linguistics of all the almost bad words on The Good Place.

GUESTS:

  • Sam Anderson - Staff writer for The New York Times Magazine
  • Susan Bigelow - Librarian, columnist for CT News Junkie, science fiction/fantasy novelist
  • Rebecca Castellani - Director of venue operations and tour marketing for We Save Music
  • Todd May - Philosophical advisor for The Good Place

Colin McEnroe, Carmen Baskauf, and Chion Wolf contributed to this show.
