One fan talking about the transformative power of one movie. This Movie Changed Me offers an unexpected take on pop culture, transporting listeners inside the world of movies by celebrating our intimate relationships with them. It’s not a movie review podcast; it’s a conversation.
Join us for a live taping of this podcast from On Being Studios, with writer, performer and comedian Justin Sayre discussing the movie Auntie Mame. Hosted by Lily Percy.
This event is presented in partnership with NewFest and as part of Werk It, a women’s podcasting festival produced by WNYC Studios.
