In a welcome break from election news coverage, ABC’s news program Nightline turned the spotlight over to Portlandia creators and stars Fred Armisen and Carrie Brownstein for a revealing interview. Exploring the world of fixed-gear bikes, putting birds on things and farm-to-table chicken, ABC News’ Nick Watt asked the duo about their influence in the hipster culture and whether the satire rubs Portland-ers the wrong way.
“Everywhere I go somebody says something to me,” Armisen said. “It’s really nice.” Brownstein added, “I think people see themselves in it and it’s part of a bigger cultural conversation we’re having about this stuff.”
