The Wicker Man

This could be described as a “best buds” episode because our host and guests go way back! Katie Walsh returns to the hosting chair to speak with her old pals, Danielle Krudy and Bridget Savage Cole, who just happen to be the directors of the new Amazon film, Blow the Man Down. They are on the program this week to talk about the folk-horror classic, 1973’s The Wicker Man. Both Krudy and Savage Cole have a cinematography background, and they discuss how having technical expertise can be both a blessing and a curse on set. They go in depth on creating the unique setting of the old fishing town in their film. And they proclaim the joy of working with the one-and-only Margo Martindale. If you’re starting to get those “social isolation blues,” this episode is so much fun that it can help clear that all up.

You can watch Blow the Man Down on Amazon Prime on March 20th!
