The entertainment industry is brimming with interesting people who are responsible for your favorite movies, TV shows, and more. Join Vox’s critic-at-large Todd VanDerWerff every Thursday as he speaks with the very well known, up-and-coming and need to know folks responsible for the most exciting projects in art, entertainment, and pop culture – diving deep into their influences, inspirations, and careers in a frank, uncensored fashion. Produced by Vox and the Vox Media Podcast Network.
Desmin Borges is a vital part of what makes "You're the Worst," one of TV's most exciting comedies, so very good. The FXX series deals with serious topics in darkly amusing ways, and that includes Borges's character, Edgar, a veteran who suffers from PTSD and is trying to struggle through it without much support from his friends. Borges joined me to talk about his research into PTSD, the moment that made him realize he wanted to be a performer, and his secret dining nirvana in Los Angeles.
