The People's History of Film is a weekly interview show hosted by Dalton Stuart fromGoodTrashMedia.com. Each week, Dalton sits down with different filmmakers, comedians, artists, and other interesting guests to discuss their personal history with film: what was the first movie they remember seeing; when did the movies change their life; if they could only save five movies, what would they pick. Each episode is interesting and a good time to be had by all.
Here we are Historians, episode 52. This will be the final episode of the People's History of Film as we go on an indefinite hiatus. When we decided to have this be the last episode, it made sense for Dalton to be the one answering questions. It was always a part of the plan, we just didn't know when to implement it. Once things played out, this made the most sense. Dalton then asked me, Arthur, to write his show notes. Normally Dalton puts the notes together, and I clean them up and publish the post. But, this time he wanted me to say a few words.
I met Dalton in 2012, about 7 months before we started on the podcast adventure. He was loud, opinionated, but funny. When we started podcasting, it was his boistorous and talkative nature that opened me up more and made me more comfortable on a mic. It is fitting that he would want to host his own interview show; he has a knack for talking. But, more than that, he has a gift for getting information out of people. When we sat down to do my interview, at episode 20, it went on to be one of our initial long episodes. For an introvert like me to talk for the better part of 90 minutes in one sitting, it's an impressive feat. And that is the skill that Dalton brings to the craft.
When the momentum began building in his head for this show, this People's History of Film, to become a concrete expedition--I was hesitant. But, now, 52 episodes later. I'm a lot of things; sad and happy, fulfilled, stretched and ultimately proud. Dalton's exercise, while one designed simply for fun, pushed me in many ways that we will talk about. If you've ever listened to this show or the GenreCast, you know Dalton. He's a bit brash, loud, talkative, he cuts people off, he makes jokes that are a bit racist possibly, but he loves movies and he loves talking to people to see why they share a love of cinema. I've been proud to call him a collaborator, but I'm even more proud to call him friend.
This is Dalton Stuart's history of film, get into it.

Hello dear listeners and welcome once again to The People's History of Film. On this week's show, Dalton sat down with OKC-based podcaster Dan LeFebvre (Luh-feb, if you were wondering). Dan is the host of the fantastic and award-winning podcast, Based on a True Story. On each episode of his show, Dan compares Hollywood with history and breaks down the true stories behind the films we love. It's been a few weeks since Dalton sat down with a guest he's never met before, and this turned out to be quite the treat. Dan had a ton of great stories and was game for sharing those anecdotes for our milestone 50th episode. Get into it.
Greetings historians! Welcome once more to The People’s History of Film. This week Dalton sat down with comedian, writer, and poet Josh Shepard. As with last week's guest Keithan Smith, Josh is a member of the OKC comedy group The SAAD Boys. Josh also co-wrote and co-directed the SAAD Boy's produced short-film Bean Flute. Dalton and Keithan discussed Bean Flute on our previous episode.
The conversation starts off with some background on the production of the film. But, further shameless self-promotion is just the tip of the iceberg. Josh and Dalton had a fantastic, free-wheeling conversation. Josh is just a peach of a guy. It won't take long for you to figure out how this interview went for over two hours. In fact, it's the longest episode in the history of the show. This is Josh Shepard's history of film.
Greetings historians! Welcome to another episode of The People’s History of Film. This week Dalton sat down with poet, comedian, and friend of GoodTrash Media Keithan Smith. Dalton and Keithan perform together as part of the OKC comedy group The SAAD Boys. You've heard The SAAD Boys discussed in a handful of previous episodes. In fact, Dalton interviewed both Heath Huffman and Christopher Fox. Other than general self-promotion, Keithan came on the show to talk about the SAAD Boys produced short-film Bean Flute, which is exactly as weird as it sounds. We'll have even more talk of the film in store next week. Keithan has a truly unique and wonderful energy, which made for a one of a kind interview. This is Keithan Smith's history of film. Get into it.
