It’s That Episode 40: ‘Space Ghost’ with Nate Smith and Show Writer Dave Willis
On “It’s That Episode” Craig Rowin (UCB Theatre) invites guests over to watch any episode of any TV show they want. They discuss the episode and other crap.
A very special Space Ghost Coast To Coast episode. Dave Willis (Space Ghost, Aqua Teen Hunger Force) chooses some Space Ghost episodes for superfan Nate Smith (UCB Theatre) to watch. Nate talks about how he tailored his prom clothes to accommodate his Space Ghost fandom, and discusses his out of control TV addiction. Then Craig skypes with Dave Willis to talk about working on Space Ghost and all things Adult Swim, all while Dave attempts to buy Dwight Yoakam tickets.
Here are some quotes from the episode:
“It wasn’t just that it was unusual and funny, which I loved about it, but I felt that knowing about it, I knew about something really special that other people didn’t know about, and as a teenager you find your identity by the things that you like.” – Nate Smith
“We would just write a bunch of questions that were insane. That an all-powerful outer space entity, who would be both shallow enough to think that he can host a talk show and all-powerful and unique enough that he couldn’t possibly relate to any human being much less with a celebrity that’s out plugging their new project, would ask them.” – Dave Willis
