Goodbye YOU: A Farewell to Sera Gamble
"Goodbye YOU: A Farewell to Sera Gamble" In this very special episode of Podcrushed, we invite YOU showrunner, Sera Gamble (The Magicians, Supernatural) to reflect on 4 seasons of YOU—from her earliest pitch meetings, to landing on Penn as Joe, to saying goodbye four seasons later. We get to hear her side of the now infamous boundary-setting conversation, and Sera shares why she's the real Joe Goldberg. Follow Podcrushed on socials:TikTokTwitterInstagram

Roy Wood Jr.

Today's guest is Iliza Shlesinger, the inimitable stand-up comedian, best-selling author, and podcaster. She opens up about growing up Jewish in conservative Texas, confronting her crush while in her high school mascot regalia ("a gigantic foam hornet head"), and doing stand-up comedy in parking lots.

The brilliant Jameela Jamil (She Hulk, The Good Place) stuns the group with her unparalleled ability to flip between painful recollections, deep wisdom, and delightfully wicked humor all in the same thought. Jameela shares about the inspiration behind I Weigh, why she backed out of a chance to star in S4 of YOU, and why failure is her good place (we had to!). You also won’t want to miss the moment Jameela cries out “what the f&$k Penn,” while Sophie and Nava lose their minds with glee. Follow Podcrushed on socials: TwitterTikTokInstagram
