Listen to Joss Whedon on the Nerdist Podcast. Chris, Matt, and Jonah invade Joss's home to talk about how he casts for his characters, coming up with new ideas, and the days when he and Chris lived across the street from each other!

This will be the greatest thing ever.
Holy cow, this is an amazing interview! Starts slow, but once it gets rolling it's among the best interviews with Joss I've heard.
This is so fun, relaxed and covered such a wide variety of topics! It felt like a lot longer than just an hour.
"People care way more about fake people." Haha, true. :(
Listening to him talk about Buffy, he still cares SO MUCH (obviously, since he's doing comics). It affirms that so many years later, great television holds up because of the quality itself but also when the people behind it still care for it as much as they do.
To be honest the thing that made me the most happy is that he likes Futurama enough to trust his kids to watch it. Or the other way around and for IT to be a suitable thing for children...?

But yeah, otherwise it was still informative considering how I go out of my way to read most other interviews I come across. I had no idea Disney would have a songwriter program and I got the feeling there was some sort of undercurrent of resentment towards the Kazuis from the fans, which I thought must have come from the crew somehow, but Whedon seemed to appreciate the fact they were so willing to support the concept in the first place?
This was a great podcast.
This is definitely the best interview with Joss I've ever read/listened to/watched. In fact, it's the first time I've ever listened to a podcast and knew I would have to listen to it again at some point because there was just so much funny. Some of the one-liners were so good you could use them as quotes on the top of the site.
Fantastic interview.
A lot of fun.
Nerdist podcasts are great. Other favorites of mine include: Nathan Fillion, Neil Patrick Harris, Ben Folds, Alton Brown, Matt Smith.
I listened to some of that interview today. I like Chris and his podcast, but he's so clueless about some things. I always cringe when he says how great the Buffy movie is. I always feel like somebody should tap him on the shoulder and be like, "Dude, that movie was kind of horrible and Whedon fans hate it."

When he actually said to Joss how good the movie was, all I could think of was the Picard Facepalm LOL. I'm still a fan of his though, and look forward to the rest of the interview.
I like the original Buffy movie. I still have it on VHS. I don't think the story behind it is common knowledge outside of fandom.
