The End of the Tour – Thoughts on David Foster Wallace | Episode 020

November 27, 2015

Things get a bit dicey amongst the panel during a discussion of The End of the Tour. The 2015 film stars Jason Segel and Jesse Eisenberg as David Foster Wallace and David Lipspy respectively and concerns the final days of the Infinite Jest book tour (1996), during which Lipspy (writing for Rolling Stone Magazine) records interviews with Wallace for a piece that never materialized. The tapes later served as a basis for Lipspy’s 2010 book Although of Course You End Up Becoming Yourself, from which the film was adapted.

It should be noted that Patrick arrived with some “baggage” for this episode. No one was harmed in the recording of this podcast, though some sensibilities may have been offended.
