Discussion of the podcast— not episode-related

Unread post by Mike Gebert » Thu Mar 23, 2017 6:12 pm

I thought there might be some discussion of the podcast—suggestions for guests, etc.—and I don't want that to fall by default into the episode's show post, so this thread is for that.

Many of those are on my mind, and one I've already talked to sometime next month. But thanks!

Well, I'm glad to see that who I want to hear from is also who people here want to hear from. A couple of these desires will be satisfied soon.

If I may perchance be permitted? Might it be possible for you to speak with Mr. Ron Hutchinson - him what does all them Vitaphones? I have heard him speak a bit on a You Tube douvre and I think he would be a very interesting candidate to front up to the microphone. (He lurks about Nitrateville too)

I know this may be off-brand for a classic film broadcast, but after this is well under way and you've presented sufficient shows for silent and talkie podcasts to fully establish the Nitrateville trademark, if you're interested, my wife (Rachel Caine) and I may have podcast-worthy interview material. We can discuss topics related to film production, crowdfunding, screenwriting and film acting.

In 2013 we successfully crowdfunded a "film" digital series on Kickstarter based on the first book of her NYTimes best selling Morganville Vampire series. We co-produced the series and eventual DVD. Our cast included Robert Picardo (Star Trek Voyager), Amber Benson (Buffy the Vampire Slayer), Ben Easter (Independence Day), and many others, including myself.

Released in 2014, we're still engaged in building on the project including prospects for a deal with wider distribution. If you're interested in pursuing any of these topics at a later date, please let us know.

PS: I'd also consider adding known film collectors in the group to your list of podcast interviews, folks like Bruce Calvert and Jim Reid. Their collections and stories would be fascinating topics of interest to all here, IMO.

So as I'm wrapping up episode 2 for next week, just want to say...

1) Thanks for all the suggestions, which will be taken seriously

2) As I said, a few at least will be satisfied very soon!

I'm not aiming for absolute topicality, but I'm certainly happy when I can time a discussion to the release or showing of a title— so that episode 2, which is partly about Behind the Door, should be out when that's released next Tuesday. So if you're working on something, let me know with enough time to plan for that kind of synchronicity (as a couple of people have already).

Mike does such a good job on these podcasts I am sure that he has attended and graduated with honours from the "Dad and Dave School for Broadcasting on the Wireless"



If you can't get the above to play because I have yet again stuffed it up due to finding the putting You Tube business in Nitrateville too complicated a procedure for my little brain - here is the direct link:

Hey Michael!

Fellow Chicago cinephile here. I (finally) got around to my best films of 2017, and as "Dawson City..." made my Top Five docs, I wanted you to know I quoted you from your podcast (with a link to it within the post). Love the pod! Cheers!
