I’m the guest on the most recent installment of the New Mediacracy podcast, discussing The Remnants, this blog, and the shifting role of the screenwriter.

You can hear it at their site, or download the mp3 here.

There’s a fair amount of housekeeping at the start of the show, so you may choose to skip to about three minutes in, where I begin the John August genesis story. And if you’ve already heard that — unlike politicians, mine never changes — skip to 14:30, where we start talking about new media.

The whole thing runs a little over an hour. If you find moments you want to highlight for other readers, feel free to flag them in the comments. For example, at 11:45, I explain why I am invisible to Oliver Stone.

Thanks to Zadi Diaz, Chris McCaleb, and Steve Woolf for a great discussion.
