The Projection Booth podcast: ALL THAT JAZZ

I’ve just ticked another item off my career bucket list: appear on an episode of The Projection Booth ✅

Not only do I get my mind blown by my co-hosts David Kittredge and the mighty Mike White (who is the driving force behind the podcast) in the discussion but I also speak about one of the greatest films of all-time (it’s a big statement but I stand by it), Bob Fosse’s ALL THAT JAZZ (1979).

As Mike describes it, “It’s definitely not an autobiographical picture about a choreographer-slash-director (Roy Scheider) who’s working on his previous film about a groundbreaking stand-up comedian (Cliff Gorman) while rehearsing his next Broadway sensation. It’s definitely not about Fosse facing down the specter of mortality and expressing it the best way he knows how.”

The podcast also includes interviews with editor Alan Heim, actress Deborah Geffner and Keith Gordon.

It’s showtime, folks! *jazz hands* 👯‍♀️👯‍♀️👯‍♀️

The Projection Booth’s Special Report: THE FLY

What an honour it is to be interviewed by Mike White about THE FLY for inclusion in his incredible The Projection Booth podcast!

For anyone who may be a debutante when it comes to The Projection Booth, Mike does a deep-dive dissection of cinema that, just like my book, looks at one film per episode then examines it with a panel of co-hosts (Mike being the constant). Often, this culminates in podcasts over two hours long – 3.5 hours in the case of this one.

Mike has two of the most insightful voices in today’s cinema commentary landscape, Samm Deighan and Bill Ackerman, as his co-hosts for the Special Report on THE FLY. And I step up separately to be interviewed about my book, as does Stuart Cornfeld who is the producer of THE FLY and a champion of the film.

This is a podcast that never fails to deliver to the discerning film fan. Get into it.
