For real though where can I find an RSS feed for The McElroy Brothers Will Be in Trolls 2 so I can share it on FanFare? Because that shit's getting a little crazy.

The second episode of TMBWBIT2, with their agent, who is plainly caught between enjoying the goof and a terrified awareness of exactly​ how good or bad for his career this crazed plan (and in particular how he advises a them and is seen to advise them) could be, captures the spirit of it all perfectly. This improvised multilevel narratives thing seems to be their (particularly Griffin's) developing obsession, and it's artistically really quite interesting to me. It's not always successful, and it is always risky, but it does feel like they're trying to push at some of the edges of what their particular niche does. It feels a bit like the fairly unexpected success of TAZ has emboldened them to take more risks with things. It's still​ quite incremental innovation, and it is facilitated by the way that they have allowed their lives to bleed into their work (in particular by seemingly slowly involving everyone in their family with their podcasts), which I think is probably either something you like or don't on the fairly arbitrary basis of whether you find them personally charming or annoying, but as someone who is definitely on the "charming" side of things, I am enjoying it.

I don't want to ignore the main episode, but their agent in TMBWBIT2 slowly losing patience with them is delightful. "The $100 commission I'll make off of your fuckin' roles in Trolls 2 is really gonna move the needle here. What an exciting opportunity for me!" "...you got plans for that hundy?"

I put in a request to add the Trolls2 podcast for FanFare.

I am fairly new to the McElroy fandom so I'm saying this with fresh ears & eyes but I think all 3 of them are monstrously talented (Griffin in particular though) and I am extremely glad they're feeling emboldened if it means more quality content that I can consume.
