The Other Side of Darkness: A Seinfeld Parody Podcast
The origins of Seinpeaks with Dano Dunham

The origins of Seinpeaks with Dano Dunham

October 22, 2021

Phase One of the podcast continues: exclusive conversations with guest stars and crew members from Seinfeld (and sometimes Twin Peaks!).

This week, I'm actually the interviewee. I was invited to appear on The Drive Home with Dano recently to talk about Seinpeaks with Texas radio host Dano Dunham. Dano's a member of the Seinpeaks community and a big fan of both shows, and we had a great time breaking down what makes them work so well together.

This week’s musical guest is Antighost, a post-punk, emo/grunge band out of Detroit. Stay tuned after the interview for their track “I Can’t Feel The Sun.”

Seinfeld Composer Jonathan Wolff shares his favorite themes from the show

Seinfeld Composer Jonathan Wolff shares his favorite themes from the show

October 10, 2021

Phase One of the podcast continues: exclusive conversations with guest stars and crew members from Seinfeld (and sometimes Twin Peaks!).

This week, I'm back with Jonathan Wolff, the mind behind Seinfeld's iconic theme. With Seinfeld's official soundtrack now available, Jonathan and I dug into some of the show's most memorable tracks and explored what made them work so well. We also talked about how his music has found new life in the age of memes, and how he learned a lot from the relationship between David Lynch and Angelo Badalamenti (guess what--he's a fan!).

Watertower Music has recently released, for the first time ever, the official soundtrack to Seinfeld--including over thirty tunes Wolff composed for the show. You can purchase it on all the major streaming apps, and listen here on Spotify.

This week’s musical spotlight is a collaboration between musicians Star Madman and Brian Sangmeister. Stick around to the end for their single "Eyes on the Horizon."

Interview with Seinfeld composer Jonathan Wolff

Interview with Seinfeld composer Jonathan Wolff

August 14, 2021

Phase One of the podcast continues. For the next several weeks, I'll be sharing conversations with guest stars and crew members from Seinfeld.

This week I'm sharing a conversation I had a while back with Jonathan Wolff, the mind behind Seinfeld's iconic theme. Jonathan also composed music to over 75 other TV shows over his decades-long career, and shared the incredible story of how he created Seinfeld's music to fit each episode uniquely. 

This interview was originally recorded last year for my parenting series, Dadsplaining: A Fatherhood Podcast. My cohost Brandon and I also spoke to Jonathan about his life as a father of five, and balancing his career with his home life. He had a great perspective and a lot of wisdom to share, and I think you're going to really enjoy hearing from him.

I chose to dig this interview out of the vault because Watertower Music has recently released, for the first time ever, the official soundtrack to Seinfeld--including over thirty tunes Wolff composed for the show. You can purchase it on all the major streaming apps, and listen here on Spotify.

This week’s musical guest is Bjear, an artist from southern Australia whose work ranges from cinematic folk to experimental electronic music. Stick around to the end for his song “Dream In Blue.”

Phase One of the podcast continues. For the next several weeks, I'll be sharing conversations with guest stars and crew members from Seinfeld (and this week, Twin Peaks!).

 

This week I'm talking with Alicia Witt, who starred in both the original run of Twin Peaks and the revival as Gersten Hayward. Alica is also a gifted musician and songwriter, and I had the chance to speak with her about her upcoming fifth studio album The Conduit, as well as her new book Small Changes. Stick around to the end to hear her beautiful new single Chasing Shadows. Alicia is going on tour this fall across the US with stops in New York, LA, Chicago and more, beginning October 1 in Boston.

Interview with Seinfeld guest star Yul Vazquez

July 23, 2021

Phase One of the podcast continues. For the next several weeks, I'll be sharing conversations with guest stars and crew members from Seinfeld.

 

This week I'm talking with Yul Vazquez, who appeared three times on Seinfeld as Bob, the intimidating street tough that terrorized Kramer with his partner Cedric. We talked about working with the late John Paragon, his upcoming project The White House Plumbers, directed by Seinfeld's David Mandel, and his work as a guitarist, painter and photographer. This is a wide-ranging interview that I had a lot of fun recording, and I think you'll really enjoy hearing it.

 

This week’s musical guest is Andrew Rinehartan LA-based musician who's been active in both the Brooklyn and LA DIY scenes for the last 12 years. His forthcoming EP 'Have Fun Idiot' comes out Friday, August 6th. Listen to the end of the show for Andrew's cover of Yoko Ono's Growing Pain.

Interview with Seinfeld AND Twin Peaks guest star John Apicella

July 16, 2021

Phase One of the podcast continues. For the next several weeks, I'll be sharing conversations with guest stars and crew members from Seinfeld.

 

This week I'm talking with John Apicella, one of just 13 actors who appeared in both the Seinfeld and Twin Peaks universes. We talked about watching the Seinfeld team work their magic in the episode The Tape, his role as Jeffrey Marsh in season 2 of Twin Peaks, and working with David Lynch in a scene that was cut from one of his films--I'll let you listen to find out which one. John shared his unique perspective on what made both shows work so well. He's an avid Lynch fan, a seasoned comedy veteran, and an all-around great guy to talk to, and I think you're really going to love hearing from him.

 

This week’s musical guest is Jacob Zukoan independent pop artist from Los Angeles. Listen to the end of the show for Jacob's newest single, Leave Me Alone.
