The Empire Podcast 76: Jim Rash, Nat Faxon, Shane Carruth

You may know him as Community's Dean Pelton, but in real life he's Jim Rash, the man who co-wrote The Descendants with Nat Faxon and won an Oscar in the process. The award-winning pair were in the Empire Podcast booth this week to talk about their directorial debut, The Way, Way Back, but also managed to talk about the final episode of Friends - no, really - and how it feels to dress up as Lady Gaga.

Elsewhere, super-indie melon-twister extraordinaire Shane Carruth, who previously brought us time-travelling brain-melter Primer, came in to explain (or not explain) his latest puzzler, Upstream Colour. Top tip: the film has something to do with pigs (though it's not abundantly clear what that something is).

In the non-interview-related portion of the podcast, the team talk about their favourite screenwriters, who would be in their ultimate movie rock supergroup and how Michael Bay's Pain & Gain deals with the tricky problem of, um, the truth. What's more, you can find out if you won those Breaking Bad Blu-rays Squarespace.com were giving away last week! Happy days. It's all here, and it's all free, and you can listen to it whenever you like.
