I’ve been trying to get Jennifer Baichwal to do an episode of Someone Else’s Movie ever since I first conceived of the show, and this week you get to find out why: She’s always been a great interview, cerebral and inquisitive and wry, and the way she applies her personality to David Cronenberg’s The Dead Zone makes for an absolutely wonderful hour of conversation.
I will say nothing else, except that this is one of those perfect pairings of guest and movie, unpacking things about both Jen and Cronenberg’s film that might not have been unpacked otherwise. It was a pleasure, and I’m just sorry the sound is a little echoey; we couldn’t record in my studio and had to use a boardroom. Hopefully you’ll be able to get past it.
Have you subscribed yet? Why not? The show’s right there on Apple Podcasts and Google Play and Stitcher, or you can just download this episode directly from the web. It’s not too late. It’s not too late. Hurry up!
