HTP Episode 085 – Michael Stein

DIGGLER_CROP
 
Michael Stein earned his indie film stripes starring as Dirk Diggler in the short film that would later be remade as Boogie Nights.  Not only did he get a cameo in the later movie, but he quickly developed a relationship with movies and independent film, at a time when the indie film world was a completely different world.
 
In this episode of Hungry Trilobyte, Michael and I get granular about how film has changed since the streaming revolution, and the ways in which that trend has both helped and hurt auteur filmmakers.  We look carefully for a way to get back some of the earlier energy without throwing out the obvious benefits of the 21st century.

Long Shot Leaders is Michael’s new podcast, about people who have succeeded as independent artists despite all odds.

Samora Smallwood played Lieutenant Amin in Star Trek: Discovery.  She is also hard at work at her independent production, Gone, as well as encouraging creators near and far with her mantra, “Manifest Yo Sh*t”.  In this episode of Hungry Trilobyte, Samora and I start off tackling heavy issues like human trafficking and internet hate, and take it full circle with lighter subjects like retro video games, James Bond, and using the internet to save the world.  Spoiler: Samora is on the right track!

HTP Episode 079 – Dr. Mohamed Noor

5B05F09E-E77B-41A7-AE60-0B189115D0E4

In addition to being the Dean of Natural Sciences at Duke University, Dr. Mohamed Noor is also a giant Star Trek fan, and has the opportunity to act as a science advisor on Season 3 of Star Trek: Discovery.  Not only was he on the team that developed the scientific rationale behind “The Burn”, he and Dr. Erin Macdonald (episodes #13 and #51)  wrote a detailed article titled The Science Behind Discovery’s Burn that fleshes out the details for the science-minded viewers.

This episode of Hungry Trilobyte features he and I discussing how it’s now acceptable to use fandom in academia, whereas that was not always the case.  We spend a lot more time just hashing out scientific weirdness (and accidental accuracies) within our favorite Star Trek episodes. 

You can follow him on Twitter and on his YouTube Channel, BioTrekkie Explains!

Nick Taber is the head honcho over at NickTaberFitness.com, but also the host of Movie Theater Time Machine. He’s a guy who can use both side of his brain at the exact same time… he’s an expert on how to help average people increase their health, but he’s also a major movie buff. He and I have a great talk about both these topics, and the weird ways in which they intersect.

HTP Episode 076 – Screaming Chuy

 

A44AFFC6-151C-4C23-8DCC-71352D3C52DF

The Screaming Chuy show is a podcast with a layout very similar to Hungry Trilobyte’s. Chuy is a guy who appreciates free-form conversation, good laughs, and exploring fandom anywhere you find it. He’s taken a bit of a different path with his show, with different types of guests, and he’s a great example of what makes podcasting such a versatile format. Here, he and I have a great chat about fandom, Rocky Horror Picture Show, horror movies like Halloween and Friday the 13th, Star Trek, and MST3k.

HTP Episode 075 – Joseph Mallozzi

Joe_Puddle

Joseph Mallozzi is a highly accomplished writer, with series such as Utopia Falls and Dark Matter to his credit.  However, the work I couldn’t resist talking about was his work on the Stargate series, joining SG1 in Season 4 and helping launch Atlantis and Universe.  Joe and I talk about world-building, US Military support of the show, the importance of humor in science fiction, and the Richard Dean Anderson factor.  Because Jack O’Neill is awesome. 

We also get to take some awesome tangents into talking about getting kids into reading (the Harry Potter Effect) and getting them to keep reading after they grow up (the Post-Harry-Potter effect).  Also, how has the shortened TV season trend changed showrunning?

You can follow Joeseph on his official website/blog,  JosephMallozzi.com, as well as his Twitter feed.

HTP Episode 074 – Steven Jay Rubin

Steven Jay Rubin is the author of The James Bond Movie Encyclopedia. As a fellow Bond fan, I’m happy to pick his brain on classic 007 topics such as “Which Bond actor worked best?” and “Does the Bond continuity work?” He and I have a mutual admiration for the lengths the franchise has went through to stay fresh and relevant.

In addition, Steven is a screenwriter with a particular interest in comedy—real comedy, funny comedy, and we spend a lot of time talking about how the genre isn’t at its best right now, and ways it could see new life.

The James Bond Movie Encyclopedia is available on Amazon right now.  If you’d like a signed copy, check with the good folks at Larry Edmunds Bookshop.

Check out Steve’s Facebook group for the book, and watch for his feature “This Day in James Bond Movie History”.  You can also find him on LinkedIn,  and his somewhat lesser-used Twitter.
