Episode notes

Film still from Gremlins (1984). The cute and cuddly Gizmo is frightened by an evil looking gremlin


Just because we’re doing remote recordings doesn’t mean we’re not going to give you one of our best episodes. We’re joined by writer, actor, and producer Felicia Day. She’s here to discuss the classic horror/ comedy Gremlins. Felicia reveals the secret to being true to herself when creating projects. She discusses how her classic film literacy has influenced her career. And she talks about the creation of her newest film Pooka Lives! Make sure to listen to this episode to hear Felicia’s great story about how she nailed her monologue as a horse grooming psychic in a Hallmark movie.
