Auteur Theory

Aug 16, 2018

So, even when we started this season several months ago, we knew what you - the listener - really wanted to hear. Half an hour of host Christopher R. Smith rambling about the early days of Canadian television and some old commercials he found on YouTube.

In this special bonus episode of Auteur Theory, Chris risks the bends for an especially deep dive into the odds and ends of David Cronenberg's cinematic and television career. From his 1960s experimental student films, his sporadic work for the Canadian Broadcast Company, his expansion into the literary world, and every other weird little avenue he took in his decades as an auteur.

If you're a real Cronenberg nerd and want to hear about the connection between Cronenberg and Cadbury Chocolate, this is the show for you. We'll be back next week with our regularly scheduled programming.
