This week we premiere our first podcast collaboration with the Circa Podcast as we look at a history of cinema.
Last summer when interviewing David Shulman, executive director of the Seattle Film Institute, we got into a lively discussion about how the history of cinema, in many ways, has come full circle. I wanted to explore this idea, so I enlisted the help of Zac Lovelace, creator and host of another 6-month old podcast, Circa. I like to call Circa “the 99% Invisible” of history. Zac describes it like this: a podcast about the stories lost in time, and how they can help us understand ourselves better.
Today’s show delves into the rich beginnings of cinema (starting with Thomas Edison and the Lumiere Bros) then takes us through the advent of television, and finally ends up at the smart phone. Zac’s storytelling style is immersive and engaging. You’ll immediately know why I chose Circa as a collaboration partner on this episode.
After the credits there is one of the funniest bonus segments we’ve had. So be sure to stick around for that too.
