This episode was released in March.

Actor-producer-director Griffin Dunne (This Is Us, Dallas Buyers Club, An American Werewolf in London, My Girl), sits on the couch for a deep dive!

You'll hear Griffin and me analyze:

  • His fascinating family history, including:
    • His father, writer Dominick Dunne
    • His aunt, writer Joan Didion
    • His uncle, writer John Gregory Dunne
    • His daughter, actor Hannah Dunne
    • His mother, brother, and sister, Dominique Dunne, who was murdered at age 22 by her boyfriend
    • Meeting Janis Joplin at Tom Wolfe's party
    • Parties with George Stevens, Jane Fonda, Billy Wilder, Tuesday Weld, Roddy McDowall + oodles of Hollywood icons
  • His friends, like Tony Goldwyn (Scandal, Network) and Charles Wessler (Green Book)
  • His "first," "second" and "third" acts
  • His early jobs (waiter! camel feeder!)
  • His Oscar date (hint: it's Griffin's "BF")
  • Being a father
  • His troubles in school
  • Domestic violence
  • Worrying about things we can't control
  • This Is Us
  • Martin Scorsese

But I don't want to give it all away! 

Just press play.
