On our 20th Insider Podcast, we talked to Oscar-nominated director Adam McKay about his latest film, The Big Short.

The film, starring Ryan Gosling, Steve Carrell, Brad Pitt and Christian Bale, sees a group of Wall Street types who discover the beginnings of the 2008 Financial Crisis. Adam McKay's filmography, up to this point, has been marked with very well-known comedies such as Anchorman, Step Brothers and Talladega Nights.

However, The Big Short marks a huge departure from his previous work with his most serious work to date. We talked to Adam about his wide variety of influences on The Big Short, how his own political leanings applied to the film and where he's at it with Marvel's Ant-Man.
