J. McVay is joined by guest Joe Virgillito as we continue our recurring series of segments in which we meet the people behind what we do here at BTRtoday. Joe writes for BTRtoday’s editorial department, largely about politics. From August 2016 through October 2019, he was the host of a daily podcast here called The Daily Beat. He’s now an associate producer on and contributor to this podcast.
Later in the episode, we revisit J. McVay’s and Jacqueline Soller’s conversation about ‘Portrait of a Lady on Fire,’ written and directed by Céline Sciamma and starring Noémie Merlant and Adèle Haenel. The film opened briefly in December, but is only now beginning it’s wider theatrical run, courtesy of Neon.
And we’ll take an exclusive early listen to a performance by Brooklyn band Mustardmind, from their upcoming BTR Live Studio session.
Music composed by and show edited by Hansdale Hsu.
