About This Show
Tampa has a somewhat unfair reputation for being a "boring" suburban city, but when you look deeper you'll find a place filled with musicians, artists and just plain interesting people with their own unique stories and experiences.
Regarding Tampa is a biweekly podcast hosted by Michael Newberger and produced by Evan Purchell at the Talkwad Studios in sunny Tampa. The show is a casual sit down with some of the folks that keep our city interesting.

Episode 40: William Grefé
Nov 3 15
Our guest on this episode of Regarding Tampa is the legendary Florida director and ‘godfather of grindhouse,’ William Grefé. Known for films such as Sting of Death, The Death Curse of Tartu, Stanley, and Mako, The Jaws of Death, Grefé has been writing and directing movies in and around the state for over 50 years. He’ll be in town this Saturday for a 40th anniversary screening of his film Impulse, which stars William Shatner and was shot entirely in Tampa. In our conversation with William, we talked about that film and how both filmmaking and Florida itself has changed since he made his first movie, 1963’s The Checkered Flag.
