Robert Rodriguez has been making movies on his own terms since he was 12 years old. Before Spy Kids and Machete and Sin City, he famously made his first feature, El Mariachi, for $7000. And, as Robert tells Marc, it’s possibly all just a prelude to the new television network he created. Plus, writer Jonathan Ames stops by to talk about his latest show and how he’s adjusting to Los Angeles. This episode is sponsored by Comedy Central, Tig Notaro: Boyish Girl Interrupted, Blunt Talk on Starz and Parachute.
Marc visits with author Jonathan Ames, creator of HBO’s “Bored to Death,” to talk about fictionalizing one’s life for television, becoming an amateur boxer, and working with someone known as Mangina. Plus, Marc shares his reaction to the rescue of the Chilean miners.
