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.
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.
