Remember those short movies that were put together by Powell's? Who could forget Boulevard Theatre multi-character presentation for Ian McEwan's On Chesil Beach that Schwartz co-hosted in Bay View? Or the panel of Korean War vets at the Schwartz Mequon location for David Halberstam's The Coldest War. Or...whatever we did at Downer Avenue for State by State? (I was out of town, apologies all around).
Well, Dave Weich, the force behind this project, has gone off on his own and put together something called The Real Road Show Project. Here's King Udall talking about the salaciousness of polygamy and how so many interviewers wind up focusing on the subject, and why they so often get it wrong.
Go to Dave's site and watch the rest of the interviews, or if you're lazy and/or forgetful, I will occasionally post them here.
Dave, I'd like a video of you explaining what all those strange drawings are on the dry-erase board in back of your subjects.
