Hosts Phil Rosenthal and David Wild’ welcome their guests Michelle Yeoh and Ke Huy Quan. Together, they discuss the new film Everything Everywhere All At Once and a lot more. There are a few spoilers about the film, but since the engrossing, totally weird movie is so hard to describe, they don’t affect much. When I saw the movie, I had avoided knowing absolutely anything about it – and so, I was unaware (until listening to this podcast) that Ke Huy Quan came out of retirement after 20 years, having playing the little kid ‘Short Round’ in Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom (as well as starred in The Goonies. He discusses that start of his career (where he wasn’t even supposed to be auditioning but only went to help his brother) and his return to acting after two decades away, while Michelle talks about her origins in Hong Kong cinema. It’s a freewheeling conversation over bagels and thoroughly enjoyable, even if you haven’t seen Everything Everywhere All At Once.
