Episode 224: Glengarry Glen Ross

Special Guest: James Foley & Ed Harris
Guest Co-Host: Chris Stachiw

Put that coffee down!

We're going to talk about something important. We're going to talk about Glengarry Glen Ross, the film from James Foley based on the Tony- and Pulizer-winning play by David Mamet. It's about a group of shady real estate salesmen in a big city boiler room trying to make the big money, get on the board, keep their jobs, and avoid winning third prize.

This episode concludes our two-part interview with James Foley. We also talk with Ed Harris about his role in the film.

We're joined by Chris Stachiw from the Kulturecast podcast.

  1. I thoroughly enjoyed this episode. Just the kind I tune in for. One small quibble. I'm kind of surprised that neither of you guys mentioned to Chris that Kevin Smith didn't come up with the phrase "Shit or get off the pot." That's been around forever. If you look it up on Wikipedia, it's mentioned that Calvin Coolidge was offended when Herbert Hoover used it against him.

    1. I certainly hope we didn't imply that Kevin Smith came up with that nugget. My mom used to say that to me quite often. - MW
