Episode 048- My Ride’s Here: Remembering George A. Romero

George Romero (1940-2017) has always held a special place in my heart, so it was very saddening to hear of his passing on July 16.

It is hard to say goodbye, and in this episode I talk about George and his career.

It’s a eulogy, of sorts, to a maverick filmmaker out of Pittsburgh who never wavered on his vision – from Night of the Living Dead to Survival of the Dead.  RIP, George.

Thanks for listening.
