The Good Place: The Podcast’s host Marc Evan Jackson sits down with creator Mike Schur and executive producer Drew Goddard to resume their two-part chat about the series forking finale, “Whenever You’re Ready.” Mike Schur talks about drawing inspiration from the last passage of T.M. Scanlon’s book, “What We Owe to Each Other,” and his process for crafting the finale episode by using a piece of music to guide his writing. He also reveals some Easter eggs within the episode that Parks and Recreation fans might catch, the scenes that eventually hit the cutting room floor, the symbolism of Eleanor’s wardrobe and much, much (seriously) more!
