BLANK CHECK WITH GRIFFIN & DAVID PRESENTS
THEY PODCAST: A SERIES ON THE FILMOGRAPHY OF JOHN CARPENTER
Blank Check with Griffin & David is proud to present THEY PODCAST: A Series on the Filmography of John Carpenter. The podcast will trace Carpenter’s filmography – covering the staggering success of Halloween, his diminishing returns at the box office, and his eventual triumph as one of the most celebrated cult directors of all time. With Carpenter emerging the victor with over 413,000 Twitter votes cast during Blank Check’s 5th annual March Madness competition, this series is highly anticipated among fans. The first episode – “Dark Star” featuring writer Emily Yoshida – drops August 8th on all podcasting platforms.
Other guests for the series include directors Nia DaCosta (CANDYMAN) and Alex Ross Perry (HER SMELL); notable podcasters Paul Scheer and Jason Mantzoukas (HOW DID THIS GET MADE?), Matt Gourley and Paul Rust (WITH GOURLEY AND RUST), Nick Wiger and Mike Mitchell (DOUGHBOYS), Amy Nicholson (UNSPOOLED), and Scott Wampler and Eric Vespe (KINGCAST); and writers April Wolfe, Drew McWeeny, David Ehrlich (Indiewire), Karen Han (Slate), Emily Vanderwerff (Vox), Angelica Bastien (NYMag), and Alan Sepinwall (Rolling Stone).
