Interesting

Kat is great! Her voice is soothing and she is awesome at directing her podcast. I am not too familiar with old Hollywood, but of course I know about James Dean and people like him. But I don’t know too much, so this Podcast was interesting to learn more about Hollywood and I think my next visit to LA will be different and more valuable.

Reel Talk with the Hollywood Kid interview.

Hi Kat,
I Listened to your show recently and just wanted to say that I thought you and your guest, Mike Distasio, were right on the money about the differences between the movies of the Golden age of Hollywood and today’s “product”. My girlfriend and I are big fans of the older movies because we find them overall to be a lot classier and we also think that they’re well acted, well written and well produced. I think that back then they cared a lot more about the craft whereas these days they seem more concerned with pumping something out quick so they can make a buck.
Enjoyed your show very much and thought Mr. Distasio had a lot of interesting input as far as all of the behind the scenes stuff that goes on that most people wouldn’t normally know about.

Steve H. Boston, Ma.
