‘Better Call Saul’ CarterMatt Podcast: Talking season 2 finale, Saul book ‘Don’t Go to Jail’ with Steve Huff
Still reeling from the “Better Call Saul” season 2 finale Monday night? We like to think that we’ve got a special treat on the CarterMatt Podcast discussing both that and also a book that was mentioned during “Talking Saul” by host Chris Hardwick: Don’t Go to Jail!: Saul Goodman’s Guide to Keeping the Cuffs Off. Maxim contributing editor Steve Huff is the author of the book (check it out on Amazon here), which is a guide from Saul as to how to work the legal system, some tips of the trade, and so much more. It’s a fun read, and it’s a nice way to get more of Saul Goodman’s voice while you wait for his younger incarnation Jimmy McGill to return at some point in 2017.
In this podcast, Huff discusses the origins for the book, why his background made him the perfect candidate to write it, and also some of the challenges that went into forming Saul’s voice and some of the collaboration that went on here with those who work on the show. He also discusses how this book process made him even more of a fan of the show, and the enjoyment he gets from watching this incarnation of the character play out.
There’s also a discussion in here (of course) about some of the finale’s big events, whether it be Chuck’s betrayal, the mysterious “don’t” note, and whether or not we could see Gus Fring in season 3. It’s all speculation, but hey, that’s a part of the fun! Hopefully, this chat will be a great launching pad for more discussions on the show on the site in the coming days.
We’re going to have Jason Prager return to the podcast later this week (still working on a time) to discuss the finale from his point of view, and you can as always subscribe to our iTunes feed to take some of these on the go.
