In this episode of Screen Dive, host Anna Van Valin takes a look at the 2002 cult classic Super Troopers, and explores how the sketch group Broken Lizard successfully transitioned their act, and friendship, to the big screen. Director and co-writer Jay Chandrasekhar sits down to talk about his comedy influences and how Broken Lizard turned 3 minute sketches into hit 90 minute movies.

Murder, infidelity, suicide, arson, overdose, religious cults, drug trafficking; this podcast explores the alleged true crime antics and criminal connections of musicians we love like Jerry Lee Lewis, The Rolling Stones, Tay K-47, Tupac Shakur, Mayhem, Amy Winehouse and many more. Why? Because real rock stars are more like feral, narcissistic animals than functioning members of society and that is precisely what makes them so damn entertaining. If you love true crime and you love music then get ready to love this podcast.
