Before I begin, I want to say a quick and humble thanks to everybody who gave me positive feedback on yesterday’s audio post. If you listen closely, can can sort of hear a touch of nerves to my voice…which is rare for me when I turn on my microphone. In short, I was worried about coming off badly and ending up looking foolish where I was only trying to help…and while that’s still always a possibility, hearing as many positive responses as I did really hit me square in the chest.

If you haven’t listened yet, please do.

As for today’s order of business, it brings me a great deal of joy to be closing out the summer season of podcasts with the film Jessica and I chose to discuss today. You see, while it took a while to get going, I’m of the firm belief that there were so many great indies at the theatre this summer…and that they tend to leave us with so much to discuss. Don’t get me wrong, I had a ball discussing GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY and HOW TO TRAIN YOUR DRAGON…but I feel like there were so many more things to hash into this summer from the films of Jaramusch, Linklater, Woody Allen, and the like.

And indeed, there is a lot to get into with this one last gasp of summer, and I got to get into it with a mysterious Swede who has always felt like my blogosphere big sister. She is wise where I am not, and leaves me directions to the great things that I’ll find cool when I’m old enough to appreciate them. She’s awesome that way.


Here’s what’s in store in episode one-hundred-twenty…
