The brain behind BoJack Horseman, Raphael Bob-Waksberg, is with us this week. He dives right in, talking about the privilege of being a white man in today's entertainment industry, his “professionally Jewish” parents, how ADHD affected him as a teenager, developing his creative voice, the loneliness of first moving to Los Angeles, the enduring impact Gary Shandling and The Larry Sanders Show has had on him, what he actually meant for BoJack Horseman to be, being a show-runner, six season into “BoJack”, the joy of writing a book, whether he's equipped to handle the responsibility of being an artist in 2019, and, finally, how meeting his wife has made him less cynical .
