In year one, we have seen how the discussion of films as influential to the creation of our individual identities has joined us together in a mutual appreciation for film as a powerful tool for understanding, personal growth, and exploration of ourselves and the world around us. As we head into year two, we promise to bring you even more fascinating guests who will share their unique stories about the films that have impacted their lives in remarkable ways.

Episode 2: Janet Joyce Holden

Welcome back!  Today, we present episode two of the Movies Made Me podcast.  This is the first of our regular discussion-based episodes and we are extremely proud to feature author Janet Joyce Holden.

We met with Janet in her home and spent a delightful afternoon discussing the films she feels most influenced her to become the person she is today. Consider yourselves warned, her movies are not for the faint of heart!  So, delve into the dark recesses of an author’s mind and learn how films have helped inspire the detailed worlds she creates.

And, please, let us know what you think of the podcast, so far.  Leave comments here or click to comment on our Facebook page or Twitter feed.
