Looking for something to get you through the workday? May I recommend listening to the recent installment of my favorite podcast Pop My Culture with Cole Stratton and Vanessa Ragland? You may have discovered them before through the Nerdist, SoundCloud, Stitcher, iTunes, or even been there from the very beginning like me. Whatever the case, I'm pretty sure you will be a forever fan after listening to their interview with, the one, the only, Cary Elwes.
My favorite Robin Hood, my favorite pirate, and the kind of actor you do not mind seeing as a baddie. Let us pause a moment to *swoon*.
Now if the mere mention of Westley.... I mean Elwes is not enough, here are some more reasons to check out this episode:
Following topics discussed in this segment: Andre the Giant, Rob Reiner’s Hibachi grill, sword fighting with Bob Anderson, watching Billy Crystal work, live LACMA reads, William Goldman, Rodents of Unusual Size, Christopher Guest, Errol Flynn, Fat Albert impressions, Treasure Island and writing his new memoir (As You Wish: Inconceivable Tales from The Making of The Princess Bride). And did you know Cary Elwes is on twitter?!
Plus, they are doing a giveaway: one lucky fan will win a spectacular Princess Bride poster signed by Elwes! See the official Pop My Culture site for details.
And look through their previous 158 episodes! They have interviewed tons of amazing people. They do not disappoint, I promise!
