Anson’s interview with Reggie took place on August 12th, 2017.  Earlier that day, in Charlottesville, a white supremacist drove his car headlong into a crowd of protesters killing one and injuring many others.  The entire event cast a shadow of that day, and many to come.  So Anson asked Reggie his thoughts.  Here’s what happened.

Reggie Watts, Part 1 – “The Dampfnudel Zone” – TWP011

Before Reggie Watts even takes the stage, he has already broken most of the accepted tropes in contemporary comedy, as well as in contemporary music.  Some think this is simply because he refuses to see a difference between the two.  But even crazier is that Reggie does not write jokes… and he does not write songs.  He simply walks into a space and then… something happens. Please join us as we delve into one of the most interesting entertainment minds working today.

We highly recommend Reggie’s album “Why Shit So Crazy”:

Jonathan Meiburg, Part 1 – “Restless and Relaxed” – TWP004

Jonathan Meiburg is a bonafide rock star.  But for the past twenty years, when he isn’t touring or cutting a new album, Jonathan has been routinely drawn to the Falkland Islands and the striated caracara, a rare falcon whose brain has been found to be strangely human.  He’s also one of the most creatively generous people we know.  Which is why we asked him to be the composer for The Well.  We hope you enjoy this in-house interview as much as we enjoyed making it.
