THE MOVIE EPISODE features Euan Kerr, a Scottish Minnesota Public Radio arts reporter who loves punk music and cat documentaries (but not cats). While Euan shares his thoughts on the movie industry, host Christine Schuster and co-host Sarah Nelson describe their quirky favorite movies and Netflix habits, like “making time for Buffy.”
Kerr, from Glasgow, has done two stints at MPR, and worked at the BBC between them. He also was a radio DJ until that got so boring that he went to Wisconsin. Witty Ranter liked him because he fights for the little film the way journalists fight for the little guy. We hope you like him as much as he did, even if you’re a big guy.
WITTY RANTER PODCAST takes on vague themes each week within art and culture. The host generally knows nothing about the topic, but can talk for hours about it with her co-host. She also brings in edgy guests – such as Wired magazine’s Liz Stinson, The Moth’s Erin Barker or NPR’s Nicky Hammar – who know what they’re talking about but don’t take themselves too seriously.
