The Talkhouse Film Podcast

Shannon Plumb with Azazel Jacobs

On the latest episode of the Talkhouse Film Podcast, friends, filmmakers and fellow humanists Shannon Plumb and Azazel Jacobs get up close and personal. Snuggled in bed in a room at the Lower East Side Ludlow Hotel, the pair share a unique rapport that translates to their fascination with the human condition and the deeper understanding of human beings that informs their work. The freewheeling conversation includes how Jacobs tapped into his comedic side for his new film The Lovers, starring Debra Winger and Tracy Letts, and then transcends space and time, delving into Lenny Bruce, the Clash and the possible existence of space babies. For more filmmakers talking film and TV, visit Talkhouse Film at Subscribe now on iTunes or Stitcher to stay in the loop about future Talkhouse Podcasts.
