Comedian Nimesh Patel was grinding it out in the stand-up mines for years with middling success. And then the stage changed. Patel tells us how TikTok changed everything and what it’s like to live at the whim of the algorithm.
Then, host Peter Kafka catches up with former stunt coordinator and current filmmaker Sam Hargrave about the secret sauce of making action films for Netflix.

Featuring: Nimesh Patel (@findingnimesh), stand-up comedian
Sam Hargrave, director of Extraction 2 on Netfilx
