The Projection Booth

Last October I was a guest on The Projection Booth, which is a rather extraordinary labour-of-love film podcast created by Detroit based film writer Mike White and his pal Robert St. Mary. They create audio appreciations of cult film basically, and that can run the gamut from a thorough discussion of the film between themselves and an 'expect', and indeed interviews with all manner of interesting cast and crew who get a chance to gab freely (without much in the way of editing) in a way you'll never hear anywhere else. It's a new form of podcast criticism that's completely outside the mainstream and even regular, 'serious' cinephilia. There's nothing like it. Mike's able to get some fairly legendary figures on the phone from Detroit, and that's all credit to his tenaciousness and passion.

I contacted him about Saint Jack because I thought it would be right up their alley, and they ran with it, getting hold of Peter B for an interview and putting me on the whole show as a guest.
