    Okay and fake doctor. But REAL friend. You may of course know Zach from his full term shift as J.D. in Scrubs, or maybe you saw Garden State, or perhaps some more recent work altogether - well here's your perfect chance to catch up on everything Zach, which includes those fun packed back in the days nuggets, the Scrubs podcast, what the term 'execution dependent' could possibly mean, directing a Ted Lasso and becoming an inventor in the process, younger day sob-fests, and being an HSP! You'll find out. A lovely chirpy episode which you'll love!

    Join your host Brett Goldstein as he talks life, death, love and the universe with comic, podcaster and doctor MICHAEL AKADIRI!
    A wonderful chat with Michael as he and Brett get proper into comedy and life and death. It turns out Michael is a perfectly equipped guest to handle such matters, being that he's been at the front line of all things medical, dividing his time between being a doctor and a comic. A fascinating chat which is always fun and funny, while dabbling in the dark side here and there (I would warn for potential triggers but if you're listening to Films To Be Buried With then all triggers are somewhat assumed). A breezy and fun time - catch up with Michael on his Edinburgh Fringe run in August! Enjoy!

    ...and furthermore, this is a live episode so you can expect all the real life atmosphere of people interacting and being next to each other in the same place, which is a lovely novelty for sure. A lovely one though, with a really nice vibe throughout and all sorts of fun and games to be had including being pregnant, living in LA, signs of the end as hipsters start arming up, making and working on Drifters, the soon-to-be hit game 'I Don't Spy', human kindness and the worst week of cinema going ever. Lovely stuff! Enjoy - you shall!

    LOOK OUT! It’s only Films To Be Buried With!
    Join your host Brett Goldstein as he talks life, death, love and the universe with excellent actor SARAH NILES!
    ...who you may know from a huge amount of roles but perhaps more recently as Dr Sharon Fieldstone in Ted Lasso! Sarah is an absolute whirlwind of merriment so don't let her Dr Sharon pokerface fool you - but doesn't she smash it in that? Good lord. Sarah's the greatest. So you can expect a ton of fun and good times, as she and Brett cover a good amount of everything including previous roles (eg. Rocks, The Bogus Woman and more), stage and screen acting, the path to a mysterious Mike Leigh audition and the journey to Happy Go Lucky, childhood, adulthood, an amazing reboot idea from she and Brett (I mean, watch out for that one in the future), and weird good-bad films. There's something about her, this Sarah. ENJOY!

An absolute delight

I’m still working my way through old episodes, but after listening to the Joe Cornish episode, I played “The Kid Who Would Be King” for my children and they are absolutely obsessed with it now.

Sarah from Chicago ,

Plastics

I knew I loved Jessica Knappett after watching Drifters but Jeebus this interview. I was walking the dog down the street laughing out loud like a total psycho. From “Eye Spy” to the Three Amigos! she is just a total delight. A++++ so glad the break wasn’t very long.

My home away from home

I lived in London for 7 years 2011-2018 and moved back to California 3 years ago. I’ve regretted my decision and have been grieving this loss for some time. Grief and nostalgia are a funny plague. They don’t just go away. They consume your everyday until you finally feel at peace. Anyway, I somehow stumbled upon Brett’s podcast and it was probably the only one that has really dug its claws in me. The conversations and banter brought me back to my London and the subject matter is about film which is already something I’m passionate about, not to mention with some incredible comedians with whom I’m also an aficionado of. I’ve tried to stop listening as it all comes flooding back but I can’t because it feels like I’m neglecting a dear friend. I heard you recently say you’re possibly taking a break and my heart sunk! Brett, don’t stop! Thank you for continuing this conversation with so many brilliant artists/people/comedians/thespians etc! It’s been my medicine during this time of healing. My dream would be to be interviewed on your podcast over a pint (wishful thinking!) Your forever fan -Courtney
