This week, in celebration of episode 150 of Talk Easy, host Sam Fragoso takes the stand! He reflects on his boyhood and his parents’ divorce (10:53), his love of basketball and what it signifies (13:10), and talks about how his interview with Woody Allen and its market laid the groundwork for starting a podcast (18:01), the first film he’s ever reviewed (23:27), moving from Chicago to California (25:48), evolving as a film critic while a junior in high school (29:13), wanting to not only write about films but also make them (35:27), his personal style of doing what he does (40:31), faith and god… with a grain of salt (45:08), being in control and how that translates (48:02), generating good times (56:36), the perks of being honest, vulnerable and…well prepared (1:04:03), and more.

A warm thank you to Harrison Cameron for hosting this special episode.
