Speakeasy Special: Ava DuVernay, Barry Jenkins, Steve Jones

Holy Tuesday, it’s an all-new episode of our off-the-cuff Speakeasy podcast. This time, Brendan and Rico are in the studio together — a rare event! In this special, you’ll hear an icebreaker from the Academy Award-nominated director Ava DuVernay that didn’t make it to air. Also, “Moonlight” director Barry Jenkins — who is up for TWO Academy Awards — reveals why our theme song band, The Sea and Cake, makes him nostalgic for his college years. Plus, Sex Pistols guitarist Steve Jones and Rico compare Faces (and Small Faces), Brendan and Rico debate adult “Harry Potter” fandom, and more.
