EPISODE 1: THE LEGACY OF ANGUS BETHUNEThe short story, “A Brief Moment in the Life of Angus Bethune”, and the film which it inspired have had a staying power which has often surprised the artists behind the works. In this episode, author Chris Crutcher discusses his inspiration for the character, censorship, and the impact the AIDS epidemic had on his writing. Actor Charlie Talbert, who played Angus in the movie, joins the show to talk about being a teenage newbie in Hollywood, pranking James Van Der Beek, and the recent work he has been doing in New Orleans.[July 2018]
