    David Byrne Shares True Stories From "True Stories"

    David Byrne Shares True Stories From "True Stories"

    Talking Heads' David Byrne speaks with Cap Blackard about the Criterion Collection re-release of his 1986 film, True Stories and how this remarkable portrait of 80s America came together.


    The film is part zany, slice of life comedy, part anthropological study - processed through the music of Talking Heads and projected through a loving, art house lens. Cap and Byrne discuss how this remarkable portrait of 80s America came together and other unexpected art.

I love these nerds

Since 2009, Nerdy Show has been my go-to source for all the news I care about. And for news I didn’t yet know that I SHOULD care about!

C-c-check it out!

These guys know their stuff and the show covers a gamut of nerdy topics. The hosts are fun and each is a great personality in their own right. Deserves way more attention then it's getting. Nerdy Show is not to be missed!
