Today, Wednesday, April 11, 2018, Linda DeLibero and I joined Dan Rodricks on his Baltimore Sun podcast, “Roughly Speaking,” to discuss the 50th Anniversary of Stanley Kubrick’s seminal sci-fi masterpiece 2001: A Space Odyssey, originally released in April, 1968. Here is the link to that episode. Enjoy!
We posted Episode 204 of The Fog of Truth (available on iTunes, Soundcloud and Stitcher) this morning.

Welcome to the third episode of the 2017-2018 season of Dragon Digital Media‘s Reel Talk with Christopher Llewellyn Reed. My guest this time was Roxana Hadadi, film critic for Chesapeake Family and Pajiba. We discussed this year’s Academy Awards and reviewed two recents films: Annihilation and A Wrinkle in Time. Like what you see? Be sure to check out the first and second episodes of this current season, as well.
In Howard County, Maryland, you can watch the show on Channel 41 (if you’re a Verizon customer) or Channel 96 (if you’re a Comcast customer), and you can watch it online from anywhere. You can also still catch all six episodes from last year (first, second, third, fourth, fifth and sixth), plus all six from the previous year (first, second, third, fourth, fifth and sixth), as well as the six episodes from my first season with Reel Talk (Episode 1, Episode 2, Episode 3, Episode 4, Episode 5, Episode 6). Enjoy!
The fantastic Dragon Digital Media team did their usual superlative job putting this together, especially producer Karen Vadnais and director Danielle Maloney, as well as floor manager Anthony Hoos. We’ll be back at the start of March with another episode, so stay tuned. Until then, have fun at the movies!
