Listen to Gobbledygeek Episode 427 – “Derek DelGaudio’s In & Of Itself (feat. Wesley Mead)”

Derek DelGaudio in In & Of Itself (2020), directed by Frank Oz

Gobbledygeek episode 427, “Derek DelGaudio’s In & Of Itself (feat. Wesley Mead),” is available for listening or download right here, on Spotify, and on Apple Podcasts.

I am a podcast. This week, Paul and Arlo are joined by Wesley Mead to unravel the mystery of Derek DelGaudio’s stage show In & Of Itself, now available on Hulu in a filmed version directed by none other than Frank Oz. Truth be told, if truth is a concept you believe in, the gang doesn’t do much unraveling. No, that would be beyond the point. Instead, they discuss how the show makes them feel and what it reveals about the relationship between one human being and another. Magic, wolves, self-identity, and the communal experience all make an appearance. Plus, Wezzo tells us how the UK is faring with lockdown, and Arlo raves about Merawi Gerima’s stunning feature debut Residue.

NEXT: I’ll meet you in another life, when we are both cats. This month’s Four-Color Flashback is all about Ronald Wimberly’s take on Romeo and Juliet, 2012’s Prince of Cats.

Buffy the Vampire Slayer #35 makes me glad that we don’t use ratings here on the Gobbledygeek website. Everywhere else I’ve written reviews, I’ve used a ratings system, be it the four-star, the five-star, or my current favorite, the trusty old letter grades. But rating this issue, or the last few issues, of Buffy would be…difficult. I have been able to enjoy them while still being incredibly frustrated and confused by the new directions the story has taken.
