With our warm up round out of the way, we decided to dig a little deeper into this madman, this crazy wordsmith assassin they call Josh Olson. After losing our first interview, which you can read all about here, Josh was kind enough to give us more of his time. (Although we have a sneaking suspicion that may have just been a clever ploy to procrastinate on some new writing assignment!) In any event, we tried to use the opportunity to give you listeners new material rather than retreading old ground. To our amazement the guy was filled with all kinds of new stories!
We talk about his involvement with the animated Batman anthology Gotham Knight as well as Masters of Science Fiction, his feature length directorial debut in the adventure that was Infested and we make sure to talk more about trailersfromhell.com. The whole reason we got this interview was thanks, in no small part to the good people at trailersfromhell.com and if you haven’t been to the site yet, you’re missing out. And if you’ve already been there and you aren’t thrilled, well then you’re no kind of movie fan at all, are you?
So really, this is the second part of an epic two part saga and although I’m not sure if there’s a lesson in any of this, I know I’m thankful that Josh was such a good guy. (It should also be noted that he may also be happy despite this little mishap; as thrilled as we were with Mr.Olson, Rovin and I trekked out to the DVD store and while I made good on my promise to buy Dreams With Sharp Teeth, we both bought copies of Infested! So when the royalty checks come in Josh, know that 4.75 cents of that was Fancore Pirate money!)
Now what are you waiting for? Press the little button! You know the one…
