A Fond Farewell

Hi listeners and friends,

It's unfortunate to have to say this, but it seems this rendition of The Brooklyn Film Theorists podcast has reached a conclusion. As can be expected from your hosts, we parted amicably - our schedules have become too divergent and despite our fondness for each other's company, it was becoming unfathomable to record shows on a week by week basis. Rick and I will surely work together again in some capacity and for the time being, enjoy the twenty five episodes we've put together during the 8 months we were on the air.

Much thanks and love goes out to Rob Christman and Mic Blaque, two talented producers who've put in time, energy and spirit into making these episodes happen.

I'll be taking the blog down shortly in order to rework it visually and make sure all the episodes are up on ITunes in the right order. They should be up permanently in a few weeks. Feel free to drop me a line with any questions at

Take care,
