Hobo Radio Interview – James Ward Byrkit (Shatter Belt)

Since we first spoke with James Ward Byrkit in 2014, his brilliant sci-fi film Coherence has continued to grow its cult following. Now, he’s looking to tackle his next mind-bending indie project, Shatter Belt, an anthology series in the same vein as The Twilight Zone or Black Mirror.

According to the Kickstarter:

The connecting theme is consciousness— the mysteries sounding awareness, intention, desire, and free will, in a time of disruption and recalibration. Each episode is self-contained, exploring the uncanny nature of consciousness in intimate, emotionally grounded stories.

We talked to Byrkit about his plans for the series, his decision to crowdfund it and the episode he’s already filmed with guest star Patton Oswalt.

  • Intro – “Giddy Up” by Tahuna Breaks

Hobo Radio Interview – Jean Villepique

Whether she is chanting “Pee, Poop, Masturbate” alongside her best friends on A.P. Bio or explaining to a teary-eyed Jimmy McGill that he can’t get his insurance premiums back on Better Call Saul, Jean Villepique’s on-screen roles are always memorable.

On today’s podcast, we chat with Villepique about her guest work on shows like The Office and Terriers, the lyrical way Paul F. Tompkins said her name on Spontaneanation and Mike O’Brien’s obsession with spaghetti on A.P. Bio.

This week’s music:

  • Intro – “Giddy Up” by Tahuna Breaks
  • Interstitial – “Vishnu Meets Funk” and “Ancient Ritual” by Lucas Perný & Miloslav Kollar
