Bob & Erin Odenkirk Talk Family, New Book, Zilot & More

Bob & Erin Odenkirk talk with me about their family life. We discuss the values Bob looked to instill in his kids and the life lessons his kids taught him. After that we talk about their new book, Zilot & Other Important Rhymes. Bob and Erin share the history of the book and the legacy it will leave for the family. I ask Bob about growing up in Naperville, Illinois, a town where we both lived at one point in each of our lives. Lastly, we finish the interview with the Fatherhood Quick Five. 

About Erin Odenkirk 

Erin Odenkirk has been creating art as long as she can remember, having first found inspiration in drawing real and made-up animals. Now a graduate of Pratt Institute, she lives in Brooklyn, New York with a lot of pencils and one bunny. Erin hopes Zilot & Other Important Rhymes makes you chuckle, maybe even chortle, but mostly she hopes it inspires you to go make something “important.”

About Bob Odenkirk 

Bob Odenkirk is known for acting (Breaking BadBetter Call Saul, the new AMC series Lucky Hank, and feature films like Greta Gerwig’s Little Women) and for writing lots of comedy sketches for TV shows (Saturday Night Live and Mr. Show with Bob and David). In fact, he’s been writing silly stuff his whole life because he sees the world as a mostly funny, pretty ridiculous place. Bob’s other books include A Load of Hooey, a collection of comedic essays, and Comedy Comedy Comedy Drama, his instant New York Times bestselling memoir, but Zilot & Other Important Rhymes is the thing he’s most proud of in this world. His greatest wish is that you laugh today and he’d very much like to help make that happen. Follow Bob on Instagram at @therealbobodenkirk.
