We’re bringing it back home to Virginia this week. Joe Duca is joining us today on the show. Joe is a Virginian living in L.A. Any chance we get to support local filmmakers is a good day in our book!

Ep 30: The Great Michael Pare’!

Ep 30: The Great Michael Pare’!

There is nothing to say except WE INTERVIEWED MICHAEL PARE’! Star of dozens of films, recognizable character actor from dozens more. Michael Pare’ is a handsome charmer who tells it like it is. This interview was an absolute delight for Mick and Brian.

We have a fond, yet wandering remembrance of Carl Reiner that takes us down the road of zombie movies of all places. Mick found an Australian zombie flick and said it’s the best he’s every seen.
