i found this podcast when it was on the HTDS feed. Good podcast good stories. i know they have bills to pay, but is a commercial break every 4 minutes necessary. lump them all together at least. 3 breaks in a 15 minute episode.

Saturday Matinee: The Industry
3934
During the 1970s the cold war began to thaw a bit with the policy of detente. It's also when the first US-USSR co-production happened. The idea was to make a non-political children's musical that could appeal to audiences in both countries. The US side would provide the talent with stars like Elizabeth Taylor, Jane Fonda, and Ava Gardner. While the USSR would provide the set, locations, and crew. However the Americans sorely underestimated the situation in the Soviet Union and the cold winter, outdated equipment, and translations issues would cause the production to lag way behind schedule and even temporarily shut down.  Interviews include Blue Bird producer Paul Maslansky, and Blue Bird star Todd Lookinland. About The Industry: The Industry is a documentary podcast that examines forgotten movie history. Each episode host Dan Delgado looks at a movie, an event, or a movement in cinema history and attempts to answer the question, 'how did this happen?'  The Industry website is IndustryPodcast.org.
