Why We Love Doing This
There are a lot of reasons I love building Blank on Blank. But number one is seeing a journalist's old interview come back to life.
Brian Raftery is a bad ass writer. His profiles and features have appeared in Wired, New York, SPIN, and GQ. So I was excited to be connected with him via a doc filmmaker here in New York.
He immediately got the premise: must-hear outtakes from an old tape become a podcast, radio piece, and video short for YouTube. Brian mentioned a great interview he had done with Thom Yorke, the lead singer of Radiohead. They had sat down in a Philadelphia hotel room for two hours. An amazing conversation on life and music and just everyday stuff. But no one had ever heard it.
Well, now they have. Enjoy. Thanks, Brian.
