Pictured above: Totally legit, not at all photoshopped shot of me, Jason Isbell and Brian Koppelman hanging out.
The acclaimed screenwriter of Ocean’s Thirteen and Rounders, director of Solitary Man and creator of the upcoming Showtime drama Billions, Brian Koppelman has had the kind of career some people spend a lifetime failing to achieve. But he’s also a former music industry executive, a sage advisor to aspiring creatives and the host of his own excellent podcast “The Moment”. He joins host Jeremy Dylan to explain why Jason Isbell’s incredible album Southeastern has effected him like no other record in twenty years.
What insights did Brian glean from his own chats with Isbell? What is is like to discover one of your favorite albums in your late 40s? How does this album help dispel destructive myths about creativity? What emotions do these songs provoke live? And which Australian singer/songwriter is Brian currently blown away by?
