Shownotes

Ryan, Brandice and Nicole talk about the soundtrack to the 2006 Marc Forster film, Stranger than Fiction. The soundtrack was originally promoted as a Britt Daniel score, but it turns out that Brian Reitzell co-scored the film with Daniel as well as helming the role of soundtrack supervisor. They chat about the many Spoon songs included in the film, including the song "The Book I Write", which was written specifically for the film.

They also discuss one of the pivotal scenes in the film where Will Ferrell covers Wreckless Eric's "Whole Wild World" in what may be one the more touching scenes in Will Ferrell's career, and they talk about how the film doesn't feel very 2006 and how the soundtrack plays a role in that feeling.
