In our 2+ years, and after 60+ episodes, we’ve come to realize that 15 Minutes is really a podcast of conversations with people who make stuff for other people to see/hear/read…, about “creativity and the need to be seen,” but that’s just too much of a mouthful for a subtitle, so “fame” will have to do.
Guests have included George Saunders, Eugene Mirman, Maeve Higgins, John Hodgman, Brooke Gladstone, Michael Ian Black, and David Sedaris. Episodes range from “Mini” anecdotes to in-depth conversations with everyone from a recent high-school grad in Western Massachusetts, to an arborist in the Bay Area, to the famous, semi-famous, formerly famous, dreaming of becoming famous. Fame and its many splendors and horrors is a jumping off point, but conversations run the gamut from pressing current issues (guns, #metoo) to the absolutely frivolous. Most are a mix of the two - as organic conversation as we can muster, at least touching on Fame Culture, but ranging ... wherever.
