Friday Podcast 9/2/11
It’s the first podcast of September and we’re just giddy about the sub-100 degree temperatures that are in this weekend’s forecast. We’re going to celebrate the relative cool of the upcoming holiday by giving you, free of charge, almost an hour of groovy independent radio production.
We’ll get things started with another edition of our buddy John Pierson’s Master Class. John’s the only guy we know who’s equally at home in Austin or Figi, and when he’s not busy writing books or eating piranhas, he’s talking with other film industry movers and shakers for his Master Class interview series. This week, he’s chewing the fat with Michael Barker, the co-president of Sony Pictures Classics. Barker’s had a hand in bringing tons of fine movies to the big screen over the years, and he sat down with our man John the day after this year’s Oscar telecast. Good stuff.
Then we’ve got Shining from Sage Tyrtle. She’s a great producer with an odd name, and today she’s sharing with you a true story starring a baby and a yurt, with a special guest appearance by a brain-damaged cat.
And we won’t stop there! We’ve also got a piece called Bay Area Composer Scores the Soundtrack of Outer Space, which is a really long but very accurate title for this piece about Christopher Hedge, the composer who created the soundtrack for the planetarium at the California Academy of Sciences
