    Monday, 14 December 2015

    Apple senior vice president of software engineering Craig Federighi joins the show for a wide-ranging half-hour discussion about Swift — Apple’s new programming language that just went open source.

    Next, John Siracusa returns to the show to follow up on Federighi’s segment on Swift. Other topics include Apple’s new Smart Battery Case for the iPhone 6/6S, and our mutual (and perhaps futile) desire to head into this week’s premiere of Star Wars: The Force Awakens knowing as few spoilers as possible.

    Chris Rock Explains His Commitment to Stand Up

    Chris Rock

    has never strayed for too long from stand up comedy. He started performing stand up in his late teens, then he was handpicked by Eddie Murphy to be in Beverly Hills Cop II. Rock then spent a few years on Saturday Night Live and In Living Color, and eventually turned to stand up yet again in the mid 1990s.

    You probably remember what happened next. Rock released a series of stand up specials, earning him several Emmys and cementing his status as one of the industry’s best comics.

    It was Spike Lee’s Do The Right Thing that inspired him to work behind the camera, as a movie director. Rock directed two movies in the 2000s, Head of State and I Think I Love My Wife. His latest is a comedy called Top Five. Rock stars as Andre Allen, a famous comic who wants to be taken seriously as an actor. Andre can’t get audiences to embrace his dramatic turn in a movie about the Haitian slave rebellion — they just want him to be funny.

    Rock will talk about why he’s making movies instead of touring stand up clubs, why he isn’t worried about becoming "old Bob Hope", and the real reason he’s afraid of losing his fame.

    Top Five is in theaters this week.

    I Wish I’d Made That: Scott Aukerman on Twin Peaks

    Artists are always influenced by the work of others. And sometimes, something an artist sees is SO good, so PERFECT that they wish they had made it themselves.

    This happens so often to the people we talk to, that we made a segment about it. It’s called I Wish I’d Made That.

    Today you’re going to hear from the Comedy Bang Bang host Scott Aukerman. One of his early jobs was as a writer for the comedy program Mr. Show.

    So why does this comedy aficionado wish he’d made the dark, surrealistic murder-mystery show Twin Peaks? He’ll explain.

    Twin Peaks is currently available on Blu-ray and Netflix, and will be returning to air sometime in 2016 on Showtime.

    You can hear more from Aukerman on the TV show and podcast Comedy Bang! Bang!. Season three of the show is wrapping up on IFC.

    John Cleese on His Early Life and the Road to Comedy

    John Cleese is one of the most influential figures of comedy. He’s best known as one the creative forces behind the legendary comedy troupe Monty Python. But before that, he was almost a lawyer.

    Cleese went to Cambridge, studied law, and was about to accept a job with a big firm when another opportunity came up. This one was perhaps slightly less distinguished, but infinitely more appealing to Cleese. The BBC was impressed by his work with his college comedy revue, The Footlights, and offered him a job writing and producing comedy.

    In his new memoir So, Anyway… Cleese discusses his journey, from his childhood in prep school, to his early days of sketch comedy at Cambridge, to the co-founding of the Pythons.

    Cleese will talk about being one of the "scientific" minds of the Pythons, writing and re-writing with his comedy partner Graham Chapman, and how he felt about the recent Monty Python reunion.

    Cleese’s new book, So, Anyway… is available now.

    The Outshot: Transparent

    Why does Jesse like Transparent? Well, it’s the rare television show that has people acting like… real people.
