In early 2020, Adam McKay set out to make a comedy. It was called Don’t Look Up, and it was meant to make fun of, and point to, the forces stopping us from saving ourselves from climate change.

2020, of course, had other plans.

This is what happened when a cast and crew came together to make a disaster comedy, while living through a series of very uncomedic disasters. Featuring: Jennifer Lawrence, Leonardo DiCaprio, Meryl Streep, Tyler Perry, Ariana Grande, Timothee Chalamet, Rob Morgan, Himesh Patel, and many, many more.

Adam McKay, national treasure!

This is a fascinating look into the making of an incredible movie. It’s a podcast about filmmaking, politics, the environment, comedy, tragedy, fear, triumphs… the human experience.
