The Projection Booth Releases Seven Hour Podcast on Conan the Barbarian

The Projection Booth podcast has explored over 200 films in the last four years. A seven hour podcast about John Milius's 1982 film Conan the Barbarian.

Co-Host Mike White is joined by Talk Without Rhythm's El Goro and Radiodrome's Josh Hadley to discuss the history of Robert E. Howard's most-famous character from the pulp pages of Weird Tales to the 2011 re-imagining of the character.  Along with the usual insightful discussion, the episode features interviews with the following people:

- Edward R Pressman, producer of over 80 feature films including Conan the Barbarian

- Mark Finn, author of the definitive Robert E Howard biography, Blood and Thunder

- Paul M Sammon, publicist for Conan the Barbarian and Conan the Destroyer, author of Conan the Phenomenon

- Sven-Ole Thorsen, actor and stunt man who played Thorgrim in Conan the Barbarian

- Gerry Lopez, champion surfer who played Subotai in Conan the Barbarian

- Sean Hood, screenwriter of the 2011 Conan the Barbarian

- Roy Thomas, Marvel Comics writer of Savage Sword of Conan

- Josh Atkins, co-host of The Cromcast, a Robert E Howard podcast

"We're not just about length," assures Projection Booth co-host Mike White. "We go for depth and breadth.  We hope that this episode is a fitting tribute to Robert E. Howard's creation, Arnold Schwarzenegger's portrayal, and John Milius's remarkable film."

The episode is available via iTunes, Stitcher, and the Projection Booth website:
