Tom Waits' songs are loaded down with darkness, weirdness, and colorful characters, so why not have Waits—who's also acted in a string of indie films through the years—as a hard-boiled detective exploring the weirdness that lurks in the dark? Nick Zaino, who covers the comedy beat for The Boston Globe, and hosts long-running interview podcast Department of Tangents, joins us to talk about why Waits needs to bring his characters to life on-screen.
