Episode 39: Live Episode - Liz Peters/Kill Billy Elliott
IMDp is an improvised interview podcast. Every week Martina Minnow interviews a director about their upcoming film, except the film doesn’t exist and they create it together through their conversation. Also joining Martina each week are our resident improvisers who create cutaway scenes and clips from the films discussed. However...
until she introduces them, only Martina knows the guests name and the name of their movie. The guest and team are kept in the dark until we press record.
Today’s Special Guest:
