...and the podcast is back. On this latest episode, host (yours truly) and contributor Erik McClanahan is joined by editor-in-chief Rodrigo Perez, managing editor Kevin Jagernauth and contributor Cory Everett for an in depth conversation about Terrence Malick and his latest film"To the Wonder," and the idea of auteur worship in cinephile/critical circles (also known as vulgar auteurism).

...and the podcast is back. On this latest episode, host (yours truly) and contributor Erik McClanahan is joined by editor-in-chief Rodrigo Perez, managing editor Kevin Jagernauth and contributor Cory Everett for an in depth conversation about Terrence Malick and his latest film"To the Wonder," and the idea of auteur worship in cinephile/critical circles..

Though we chatted for more than an hour about this idea and other directors who may or may not have become a parody of themselves (see our Malick feature for more on that), this topic is grand, complex, ever-evolving and expanding with near endless layers and varied sub-topics to broach. It's an ongoing discussion, so after you give it a listen, don't forget to chime in with your thoughts in the comments section. 

Lastly, a little house cleaning: of course you can stream the podcast below, but you can also download as well via SoundCloud for use on mobile devices. Also, we were forced to alter the cut of this podcast slightly because of copyright issues with certain music titles. While I'm happy with the version below, it's not my original vision, and thus if you'd like to hear the "Editor's Cut," which I prefer, please email me at adjustyourtracking@gmail.com and I will send you an mp3 of that edit. Thanks for listening!
