Sometimes our co-hosts really struggle to come up with a character to discuss for our show. But actor Raúl Castillo (The Inspection, Cha Cha Real Smooth, Looking, and now Cassandro) went with his gut, and what came to mind immediately was The Outsiders, and especially Matt Dillon’s character of lead “greaser” Dallas “Dally” Winston. Jordan, Raúl, and you the listener will all learn at the same time just why this character stuck with him all these years.
About the show
On Feeling Seen, writer and general enthusiast Jordan Crucchiola invites filmmakers, writers, comedians, and artists to discuss the movie characters that made them “feel seen.” It’s about that instant when a person connects to a piece of art so deeply that they see themselves reflected in it. Every week Jordan gabs it up with a guest about those magical moments when they were watching a film and realized, “That’s me!” It’s an informative, funny, and comforting show about our intimate relationship with movies, the impact they have on our lives, and how they influence our art.
