Yes, he's proud of it, but I think he's kind of ashamed by Magnolia. Serious question: How can you cut 20 minutes from it? What would you cut? I watched it recently and everything seemed essential. 
He's trolling.

But he seems to care and be proud of Junun more than one may think. Wrote that he is glad the person asking about Junun had seen it. In one of the recent podcasts he said something about "nobody seeing it" with regret in his voice, sort of.

Some nice answers, not very revealing. Great to see he has done commentary for Phantom Thread. Would love to get some extras on bluray. Name dropping Chivo and Richardson was unexpected for me. His possible collaboration with especially the former sounds amazing. Also, glad to know he is most proud of my personal fav - The Master.

jenkins [16|Jan 07:55 PM]:   I blew her a kiss and it shattered the window and exploded her head and went through the wall behind her, through the entire building and everything else in its path into the sky, moving so fast it didn't ever disrupt clouds, up and up, halving an airplane as it continued into space, crushing meteoroids such that they smothered and killed stars, piercing and assassinating the sun, eventually reaching the end of everything and opening a hole in the lining, deflating it and carrying it off like a popped balloon.
jenkins [16|Jan 07:58 PM]:   that's the final line to The Garbage Times, which is 1/2 novellas that comes in one volume bounded in tete-bech (there is no back cover: there are two front covers and the text is flipped)
jenkins [16|Jan 07:59 PM]:   you guys sometimes the kids are so good seriously. that's Sam Pink. and really he writes in this like normal-people prose, like a refreshed version of Bukowski perhaps, like that, he hang out with the homeless, all the time, he's a security guard in a bar in this book, and that's his fucking final line. it's like omg

I wish we had learned more about him preparing and shooting "Daydreaming." I think he mentioned elsewhere that it was done in a few days, despite all of those locations, so that sounds really crazy and interesting. Maybe the Twitter Q&A will offer something on that front...

Renamed 'Hal'. Premiering at Sundance.

I love the way he randomly capitalizes certain words and phrases...

"Movie Theater"
"Director's Job"
"Kitchen Table"

I recall him doing the same thing in his scripts for emphasis, especially in dialogue.

This was an especially good episode of the podcast. "This" was also a pretty good episode of The X-Files. (I'm hilarious.)

Keva is a really superb guest. I hope you have Roi back soon as well.

Erika Price is a clear reference to Erik Prince. (Relevant article here.) I think they brought some very specific real-world concerns into the episode quite deftly.

The banter was sooo on point. And like you said, Scully's agency was off the charts in this episode. I would say it verged on overcorrection, except all of it actually worked. Is Glen Morgan the one who's historically been best at writing Scully?

Less thrilled with the sci-fi premise here. If you're going to do a Black Mirror episode, you have to take the details seriously. I suppose they didn't have much time to flesh it out, though.
