Meeting Tom Cruise

Hosts Jeff Meacham (Blackish) and Joel Johnstone (The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel) really love Tom Cruise, but they’ve never met him. So they’re interviewing everyone who has, to hear their story about what it was like meeting Tom Cruise. Does the king of Scientology have something on them? Will they have Nicole Kidman on to speak about her iconic post-divorce paparazzi pictures? I’d like a whole podcast about that, please. That’s likely not going to be covered, so maybe give it a miss, unless you’re interested in gushing stories about the celebrity face of an abusive cult religion that was created by a man who wrote more science fiction than anyone else on Earth.
