John Pierson -“Clerks,” “She’s Gotta Have It,” “Slacker” and More

The man that brought you “Slacker,” “Clerks,” “Thin Blue Line” and “Go Fish” comes on the podcast to talk about the golden age of indie film – the 80’s. John Pierson talks about negotiating, finding new films, dealing with film makers and more. He tells his story of making a place for himself in the indie film scene in his great book, “Spike, Mike, Slackers and Dykes.” This book is filled with great stories. Instead of having JohnPierson just repeat them, I tried to get him to expand and give a perspective 20 years later.

In the interview I might have slammed Michael Moore for making money on his message and I also might have gotten sucked into an internet scheme. You’ll have to listen to find out!
