We announced this surprise Talkhouse Podcast live episode at Life is Beautiful less than 45 minutes before it started. But by the time the venue where we were recording opened its doors, an impossible line snaked through rows of metal dividers, down the block, and out of sight around the corner. How could it not be a standing-room-only situation, though, when the artists on stage were Fred Armisen, Chris Redd, and Portugal. The Man??? Over the next 50 minutes, in convo and Q&A, the guys hilariously tackled impersonating the arpeggiator on a synthesizer; shared the secrets to continuously reinventing their art; and spilled tea on mind-blowing Saturday Night Live moments as well as PTM’s most epic onstage meltdown.
