The hilarious and innovative Bo Burnham (EIGHTH GRADE, MAKE HAPPY) joins Unqualified this week to discuss the stress of going on talk shows, the making of his directorial debut, how to elicit vulnerable and truthful performances from young actors, and why it was crucial for the lead of Eighth Grade to be female. Next, Bo answers some deal breakers and Anna auditions for Eighth Grade 2: Ninth Grade. Later, they call Jesse who is struggling to handle social anxiety in friend groups and Madeline, who is uncomfortable about the age gap between her and her boyfriend.
