Book and a Movie

Episode 13: Book and a Movie- Roadside Picnic/Stalker

Get ready for the first ever cross-over “Book and a Movie” episode! We joined forces with Reading Envy to discuss the book ROADSIDE PICNIC by the Strugatsky brothers, and the Tarkovsky slow-film classic STALKER. 

Jenny Colvin, the host of Reading Envy, is a total bad-ass. She read over 300 books last year, and she is one of the most intelligent podcasters I know. I thoroughly enjoy her podcast (if your New Years Resolution is to read more, check out her "Best of 2017" for book suggestions).

We discuss the similarities and differences between the source material and the adaptation, as well as some of the things we liked (and didn't like). Jenny and I also discuss Infinite Jest, some of her favorite books of the year, a famous littering scene from the show MAD MEN, and finally my friend's deepest fear.

Episode 6: Book and a Movie - The Long Goodbye

Welcome back to Film Baby Film. Life has been very good and very busy, as I've been traveling and moving and recording game shows (!), but I am definitely thrilled to get back to podcasting.

On today's episode, we are joined by artist/poet Kurt Eidsvig, who joins us to discuss THE LONG GOODBYE, both the 1973 film by Robert Altman and the 1953 novel by genre master Raymond Chandler.

The first 13 minutes are an intro where I discuss some of what has been happening since my last episode, as well as explaining why I podcast. Feel free to skip ahead to listen to the discussion, but do yourself a favor: listen to the ending. Kurt is one hell of a guest and I am confident this won't be our last "Book and a Movie" episode we record together.
