In an extended interview, Jesse will talk to Bootsy about his unique career. Then later the folks at the film site The Dissolve will look back at two classic satires that you should check out immediately. The music critic Oliver Wang will join us to explain how a forgotten Al Green record helped create a new kind of soul music.Then Jesse will tell you about Orson Welles' final masterwork, ‘F For Fake’.
