In a decade lousy with "nature strikes back" films (Grizzly, Night of the Lepus, Kingdom of the Spiders), visual designer turned filmmaker Saul Bass's Phase IV stands out as a hybrid of solid science fiction, nature documentary, and personal drama.

This episode features interviews with the writer of Phase IV, Mayo Simon, along with actor Michael Murphy and composer Brian Gascoigne. Mike's joined in the discussion by writers Robert Hubbard and Josh Hadley.
