We originally appeared on episode 5 of Department of Tangents.
My guests for Episode 5 are filmmakers and musicians Michael J Epstein and Sophia Cacciola, who have been working at the hellish pace of writing, producing, and directing one horror film a year for the past three years. Two of them, Ten and Magnetic, are available to stream now, and the third, Blood of the Tribades, is making its way through the festival circuit. Epstein and Cacciola area creative force and community builders, and we discussed everything from narrative structure to nudity in horror films to how a podcast should start while sitting around their kitchen table late one evening.
Now we appear on recap episode 23!
One year ago today, I launched the Department of Tangents Blog & Podcast, a place where I could write about my love of comedy, music, and horror, and an outlet to interview the people who create those things I love. It’s changed a bit in design and format over the course of the year, and it’s an ever-developing project, and if I’m lucky, it always will be.
To celebrate, I’ve created a “Best Of” episode of the podcast compiling bits from the first eleven interviews with Brian Kiley, Noel Fielding, Dave Cobb, Nate Leavitt, Michael J Epstein and Sophia Cacciola, Brendan Boogie, Steven Wright, Robbie Fulks, the Reformed Whores, Tom Snyder, and Ruby Rose Fox.
