    Exclusive Interview With Matthew D. Ward and Justyn Ah Chong Of Wichita

    Posted in Podcasts by Gino Sassani on July 5th, 2017

    The Candy Factory has been churning out the sweets of late. You must have noticed the many reviews we’ve had for the studios recent output. One of those films is the horror movie Wichita by first-time filmmakers Matthew D. Ward and Justyn Ah Chong. It’s a claustrophobic thriller that combines a bit of cinema verite with serial killer character study. I had a chance to talk to the two filmmakers, and they were eager to share their experiences on the film. While the audio is a bit rough (cell phone conference call) it’s worth a listen, to be sure.

    Exclusive Interview With Robert Matzen: Author Of Fireball: Carole Lombard and the Mystery of Flight 3

    Posted in Podcasts by Gino Sassani on February 22nd, 2017

    He’s back. I’m talking about author Robert Matzen. I spoke to Robert at Christmas about his amazing book Mission: Jimmy Stewart And The Fight For Europe. You can catch up on that interview Here. Now he has released a new edition of his book Fireball: Carole Lombard and the Mystery of Flight 3 which tells the story of the fiery plane crash that took the life of Carole Lombard, her mother, and Otto Winkler, who was Clark Gable’s assistant and best friend, on January 16, 1942. The plane was also carrying American servicemen who were an important part of the World War II effort. This new edition contains brand new material and has been released for the 75th anniversary of the tragic crash. I can tell you that it’s a page-turner that you’ll find hard to put down. (Of course, that could have to do with the sticky stuff they put all over the cover. Just kidding.) All the while as I was reading the book I was looking forward to another conversation with the author. We finally got to talk again. Now you can hear every word. Bang it here to listen in on my chat with Robert Matzen.

    The book is out now on GoodKnight Books.

    Exclusive Interview With Sheldon Renan: Director Of The Killing Of America

    Posted in Podcasts by Gino Sassani on November 12th, 2016

    Violence in America has been a hot topic in the news these days. But it’s not as new of a topic as you might imagine. In the 1980’s Sheldon Renan directed The Killing Of America. He put together news footage, much of which never made it to air at the time. He interviewed serial killers and investigated the stories. The documentary was never released in The United States. Now Severin is finally releasing it on Blu-ray. Of course, I just had to talk to the director and get the scoop on this one. Bang it here to listen in on my chat with Sheldon Renan.

    Posted in Podcasts by Gino Sassani on September 19th, 2016

    Oliver Stone warned me when I went to see Snowden. He told me it could happen. But I never thought it could happen to me. We’ve been out there interviewing the participants for All American Bikini Car Wash. I recently spoke with Heath Centazzo who plays Big Tony and Brendan Nagle who plays Bobby Bullets in the film.
