Katie Walsh is back in the hosting chair this week to speak with the fascinating director of the new film Blue, Gabriela Ledesma. Gabby’s on the show to talk about the iconic Alfred Hitchcock film, Psycho. She opens up about the dark subject matter of Blue and how her own suicide attempt inspired the film. She also discusses the lessons she learned during her naval career that she has applied to filmmaking. Plus, Katie and Gabby just generally obsess over the genius of Alfred Hitchcock.
