And we’re back! Out of hibernation, That Conversation starts out season 2 with one of its favorite season 1 guests, David Smith. Patrick and David talk about his new film Ladybeard which screens at the Keith Albee Theater Friday April 12 as part of the Appalachian Film Festival. Inevitably, the conversation gets hijacked by a surprisingly heated conversation about Dick Van Dyke. Plus, Patrick features the winner of his annual Academy Awards Oscar Pool. Music by Kevin McCleod.
The first show of the new year is a good one. Documentary Filmmaker and media advocate Elaine McMillion talks to Patrick about making films about West Virginia. Elaine talks about what its really like to grow up in Logan County, and why the media has been so wrong for so long about West Virginia. Plus, Patrick sits in on a sneak preview of CSC’s “God Of Carnage.”

Episode 10 – Logan Likes Brainwrap
Just in time for the Mayan apocalypse, Patrick sits down on location with the Huntington film collective Brainwrap, deep in their sinister lair. Ian and Max Nolte and Michael Valentine share their experiences on working with puppets, how a friend’s Christmas present resulted in a film which is literally unwatchable, and other secrets of the Huntington New Wave. Plus the mystery of the Bluegrass band Dogspit is revealed once and for all. Thanks to Max Nolte for engineering this episode.

Episode 5: Sam Holdren and the Impossible 3
In this first part of a two-part interview Patrick sits down with award winning film maker Sam Holdren. Sam discusses his varied experiences as a student film maker, crew member, casting director, blah blah blah, yadda yadda yadda…. Sam and Patrick talk about his attitude towards working on paid gigs for dubious corporations, how Sam dragged Patrick kicking and screaming into a shadowy clandestine organization, and their mutual ambivalence towards Wes Anderson.
Also, your bad teen poetry on the subject of “I can be hurt by you” and if you listen very carefully, you can hear Leah cooking fish tacos in the background.

Episode 4 – Adam Bryan Saves The Day
We get into character with Theatrical Actor/Director Adam Bryan of the Alban Arts Center in this surprisingly coherent episode. Patrick and Adam talk about their individual experiences playing Algernon in “The Importance Of Being Earnest”, being in the right place at the right time, the plays that changed their lives, bringing No Pants Players to the Alban, and the awesomeness that is David Auburn’s “Proof.”

Patrick and Rudy Panucci of Radio Free Charleston geek out about television, West Virginia State College, and 80s Charleston Popular Culture in this very non-linear “interview.” Rudy explains how he met Aqualung, why you should never be married by Satan and how Ren & Stimpy saved his career.
