Episode 13 – In Which God Smote David Smith With A Pile of Oranges

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.

Episode 5: Sam Holdren and the Impossible 3

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.
