The Dan Boyd Chronicles is a podcast geared for seniors and as such, Dan Boyd himself recently approached me to be a guest. At first I wasn’t quite sure how he found me but apparently he discovered my work via social media, LinkedIn to be specific. From there, he requested a connection, contacted me and tld me about his podcast via an applicable link. I checked it out, saw that it and he were legit (you never can tell in this digital day and age), and agreed to participate.
I’ve done a few other podcasts as I’ve posted about here previously. The majority of them have included video as well as audio but Dan chose to go simply with an audio interview about my work, focusing on Lee Marvin Point Blank.
I’d like to add that having done such podcasts over the past few years, some of what I’ve said is repeated here, so I chose to do something I had not done before: for the Dan Boyd Chronicles I revealed the status of several upcoming projects for the first time. It may be worth a listen for that reason alone.
Dan’s a nice guy as he asked me not only about Lee Marvin but a few other actors he said his audience have been curious about, such as the late, great Robert Mitchum and James Coburn. Not one to miss an opportunity to discuss such subjects, I pontificate appropriately.
His format is rather interesting in that he starts with some self-penned poetry, segues into our phone conversation (starts around the 11 minute mark) and then ends with a re-broadcast of an old radio drama called Johnny Dollar from 1950 starring the legendary Edmond O’Brien. I thought it pretty cool. So, without and further ado, I give you Dan Boyd’s Chronicles. Enjoy!
