With RADIO FLYER and THE SANDLOT, writer / director David Mickey Evans combined childhood magic with real world trauma for the first time since the 60s era cinema of Francois Truffaut. In the process he broke the mold of cliched cuteness inherent in movies and series such as HOME ALONE and THE COSBY SHOW, and helped usher in an era of more "gritty" big screen family fare by others; titles such as MRS. DOUBTFIRE and even CASPER for the first time broaching topics such as divorce, absentee parents, the death of loved ones and more. Craig Jamison & Jim Delaney invite us into an alternately hilarious and heart-breakingly inspirational sit-down with Evans - discussing the creation of THE SANDLOT and RADIO FLYER, his 2007 buried treasure,THE FINAL SEASON,, his upcoming biopic on high school football coach Ed Thomas, and much more.
GUESTS: Internationally renowned composer / musician Martin Tillman; the podcast troupe "We Found Microphones" on Netflix's JESSICA JONES.
