On this week’s episode of The Gastroenteritis Blues, Steve, Dan and Emily start by discussing the Sixers stories of the week. The NBA is officially coming back in December, the Sixers are going to pursue James Harden, and Jrue Holiday is available.
Then, the trio welcomes in an extremely esteemed guest in Oscar-nominated screenwriter and huge Sixers fan Michael H. Weber (500 Days of Summer, The Spectacular Now, The Fault in Our Stars, The Disaster Artist). Mr. Weber regales the hosts with awesome stories of working with Myles Teller, Shailene Woodley, Robert Redford and Jane Fonda. He also shares anecdotes about personal interactions with Bryan Colangelo and Adam Silver. Finally, the four discuss which Sixer would be the best actor, whether or not being a Philadelphia sports fan has helped Michael write about heartbreak, and how they all currently feel about the direction of the organization.
