[NOTE: Missed the show? Check out the podcast!]
On Friday, June 28, I, Christopher Llewellyn Reed – Chair of Film/Video at Stevenson University – will do my second show of the month on Midday with Dan Rodricks on WYPR 88.1FM, Baltimore’s NPR News Station, during the second hour, 1-2pm. The topic? The summer 2013 films (the ones I will have seen up to that point), as well as the life and work of Mel Brooks, who turns 87 that day. Sadly, we will be without my colleague, Linda DeLibero – Director, Film and Media Studies, Johns Hopkins University – as she will be away. Fear not, however, as she will be back later this summer, while I am away, so all of you will have the benefit of her unadulterated wisdom before too long.
Have you seen any of the big blockbuster films of the current season yet? Have you seen any of the smaller ones? Do you have a favorite Mel Brooks film? Tune in and hear Dan and I discuss Mel and company, including Man of Steel, World War Z, Monsters University and The Heat. If you can’t listen live, or locally, on the day of, you can live-stream the podcast here: http://www.wypr.org/listen-live
