Welcome back to the podcast!
Taking a look at the work of legendary director John Huston and the films "Key Largo," "Fat City," and "Prizzi's Honor," today's installment, featuring "New York Times" bestselling "Razorblade Tears" author S.A. Cosby, is a little different from what longtime listeners are used to hearing on the pod. Sprinkled throughout this extended conversation, which covers everything from post-war existential noir to down-and-outers, hitmen, and southpaws, you'll discover memorable excerpts I've recorded about Huston's life and incorporated for your listening pleasure.
A high-water mark for the series so far, our 2022 premiere is only the beginning. For the past month and a half, I've been busily planning for the exciting third season launch of Watch With Jen. This year, you'll be treated to not only the return of some of your favorite guests but the appearance of some wonderful new ones and VIPs as well so I hope you'll check back often to see which contributors and themes we'll have available for you soon. Thank you for your support and happy listening.

Pictured: During our conversation, I made Shawn blush because I asked him how many awards he'd won in the last 5 minutes for either "Razorblade Tears" or "Blacktop Wasteland." More than just a funny moment, however, when we finished, we learned that "Blacktop Wasteland" was listed as 1 of the 110 Best Crime Books of All-Time by "Parade Magazine" while we were recording. Congratulations again, Shawn, and see, I wasn't too far off base!
