S2 E2 - Editing Saturday Night Live w/ Adam Epstein
This episode was recorded on February 19th, 2019.
This is episode 2 of season 2! Today I have editor extraordinaire, Adam Epstein! Since 2009 he’s been working in the Saturday Night Live editorial department, most recently as the lead editor for the pre-filmed sketches, what used to be known as SNL Digital Shorts. We talk about humble beginnings in high school broadcast announcements, working under crazy deadlines, which was mostly news to me… I always assumed they filmed those a couple weeks in advance, but the real answer will shock you. He’s also worked on Documentary Now! Starring Bill Hader and Fred Armisen, as well as the new Comedy Central show The Other Two. Enjoy my conversation with Adam!
