How Did This Get Made?
Hosted by Paul Scheer, June Diane Raphael, and Jason Mantzoukas

Two different shows / two different movies
7pm: Yes, Giorgio
10pm: Beastly

Have you ever seen a movie so bad that it’s good? Paul Scheer, Jason Mantzoukas, and June Diane Raphael, experts in the best of the worst of cinema, bring their award-winning podcast to the BAM Howard Gilman Opera House. They gather with their funniest friends and subject themselves to a cinematic nightmare and report back to you with the results.

With over 160 episodes, past guests of How Did This Get Made? have included Adam Scott, Amy Schumer, Nick Kroll, Patton Oswalt, Whitney Cummings, Ilana Glazer, Abbi Jacobson, Gillian Jacobs, Vanilla Ice, Chris Hardwick, Chelsea Peretti, Pete Davidson, Kumail Nanjani, Scott Aukerman, and many more. Every episode features the deconstruction and mockery of a particular film such as Surf Ninjas, XXX: Return of Xander Cage, The Room, and the entire Fast and Furious franchise. With sold out shows across the country, each live episode is truly unique as the audience gets to play a part in the show by asking questions of the hosts and coming up with impromptu songs for segments of the show and seeing one of a kind clips.

How Did This Get Made? has been voted “The Best Comedy Podcast” by LA Weekly, one of Vogue’s “Best Podcasts to Listen to Now,” one of Time’s “50 Best Podcasts,” one of Entertainment Weekly’s “15 Podcasts That Will Give You A Break From Reality,” one of Vulture’s “Funny and Fascinating Podcasts,” one of Backstage’s “Podcasts to Inspire and Entertain You,” as well as being listed as one of the top film podcast’s by The Washington Post. It is also consistently among the top 10 most downloaded comedy podcasts.
