In this season of Thanksgiving, we give thanks for our wonderful guest this week. We’ve got the writer and producer of the new film Cam, Isa Mazzei. We’re so excited about having her on the show that we dropped the episode a day early! She’s on the program to talk about the much under appreciated Jennifer’s Body. Isa is a former camgirl herself and discusses the expertise she brought in creating her film. She also discusses her role on set and how she needed to direct some scenes to maintain the female gaze. She and April also discuss Jennifer’s Body and how it subverts the expectations of a teen comedy. They elaborate on the role of director Karyn Kusama and screenwriter Diablo Cody and the results of having an all female creative team. This a great episode and one that should be recommended to your in-laws over Thanksgiving dinner.
Check out Cam, now streaming on Netflix.
