PHILLIP ISCOVE (co-host, “Podcast Like it’s 1999): It was really
just supposed to be another episode, not unlike the 75 or so we had
KENNY NEIBART (co-host, “Podcast Like it’s 1999”): But something was different that day. Something in the air.
ERNIE HURTADO (producer, “Podcast Like It’s 1999”): That was the just the airplanes.
NEIBART: Aside from the airplanes. Something else. A certain je ne se quois.
WHITNEY FRIEDLANDER (entertainment journalist, guest “Podcast Like it’s 1999”): I think what Kenny is referring to is squeezing a non-problematic podcast from this very problematic movie.
ISCOVE: Yes! We somehow avoided being problematic while talking about Woody Allen.
NEIBART: I don’t know if I’d say we were completely without controversy. What about the part where you defended Woody’s behavior?
ISCOVE: I never defended Woody’s behavior!
FRIEDLANDER: I don’t think any of us defended him.
NEIBART (smirking): Phil did.
ISCOVE (steam rising): I did no such thing!
HURTADO: I don’t know. He may have when one of those 15 planes flew over.
ISCOVE: I never defended him! Stop putting that out there!
NEIBART: I guess our listeners will have to listen to the entire episode to find out.
FRIEDLANDER: This got real weird, real fast.
ISCOVE: I didn’t defend him.
