David Byrne Shares True Stories From "True Stories"
In this archival interview from 2018, Cap speaks with Talking Heads' David Byrne about the Criterion Collection re-release of his 1986 film, True Stories and the first ever edition of that film's complete soundtrack. The film was Byrne's directorial debut and as it plainly puts it right at the start is "about a bunch of people in Virgil, Texas."The film is part zany, slice of life comedy, part anthropological study - processed through the music of Talking Heads and projected through a loving, art house lens. Cap and Byrne discuss how this remarkable portrait of 80s America came together and other unexpected art.For links and more info, head to the main episode page:https://nerdyshow.com/2020/09/nerdy-show-david-byrne-shares-true-stories-from-true-stories See acast.com/privacy for privacy and opt-out information.

Get Off My Books
Presently the production house known as Nerdy Show is in the midst of some massive movements. After the release of The Call of Cthulhu Mystery Program series 2, Cap and Doug dove right into a new major project for Lightning Dogs (still TBA) - so, after a long day of recording stuff they can't talk about quite yet, and no time to assemble a proper episode of Nerdy Show, they grabbed a friend and piled into the studio for a free-wheeling conversation to catch you up on things and hopefully entertain and delight.Who is this mystery friend? Cap and Doug are joined by Eleanor Edwards, co-host of Consequence Podcast Network's The Fifth Dimension: A Twilight Zone Podcast, and Cap's partner of 16 years who's been behind-the-scenes this entire time, but hasn't truly graced us with her presence until now. Crazy! We discuss the new Twilight Zone, RoboCop, JFK erotica, and a host of other strange media and critical diversions into the life and times of the Nerdy Show crew.For links and more info, head to the main episode page: https://nerdyshow.com/2019/04/nerdy-show-get-off-my-books/ See acast.com/privacy for privacy and opt-out information.
