Erik Martin's interview of the writer of "Ground Hog Day" was very interesting. i loved the film and to have such an in depth interview of the writer was captivating. I learned so much about the "back story" of this great film. Erik was so prepared and his questions created avenues for the writer to travel. I am looking forward to listening to his work with "2001..." and the future interview regarding "Vertigo".
