Original Content podcast: Martin Scorsese and Fran Lebowitz have a good time in Pretend Its A City

The concept behind the new Netflix documentary series Pretend Its A City is pretty straightforward: Author Fran Lebowitz talks, while Martin Scorsese (whos both director and an on-camera presence) listens and laughs.
Lebowitzs musings across seven episodes are organized by loose themes, such as Metropolitan Transit and Library Services, with the more recent footage interspersed with clips from older interviews. Thats pretty much it as far as structure goes; while Lebowitz shares a number of amusing anecdotes, theres no attempt to explore the broader arc of her career or explain why were watching a show about her.
And yet, as we discuss on the latest episode of the Original Content podcast, we both enjoyed watching the entire show.
