John Cleese Podcast #29: Back to school

This is part one of a two part podcast in which John goes back to school to talk with students at the Santa Barbara University on the finer points of film writing. In this podcast John runs through the first scene of a new script that he has been given and discusses the characters, dialogue and plot.

Just thought I'd say that I enjoy the podcast very much, though it could certainly use more sound effects and pre-recorded laughter.

Seriously, what kind of aging twit tries to make a podcast without using sound effects to emphasize their points?

It's the 21st century, folks. Enjoy.

Yes it is the 21st Century, this is not Dad's Army or Porridge, this is a serious comedy genius discussing his art with drama students, so to add in unnatural effects and pointless laughter would only belittle the content.

Of course we can do it (pun there) ...

But there is natural laughter anyway :)

I think, Brad, you are poking the sleeping lion for a reaction...
