Live from the Cinepocalypse film festival, I had the pleasure of speaking briefly with KING COHEN director Steve Mitchell as well as the legend himself, Mr. Larry Cohen.  The sound quality in that noisy lounge wasn't the best, so some trimming had to be done, but hopefully you still enjoy the conversation we all shared.  Before that, I provide a lengthy intro regarding many recent endeavors as well as present another very special guest whom was kind enough to recently talk with me over Skype.  

Louis Cozolino is an American psychologist, neuroscience expert and professor of psychology at Pepperdine University. He holds degrees in philosophy from the State University of New York at Stony Brook, theology from Harvard University and a Ph.D. in clinical psychology from UCLA. He has conducted empirical research in schizophrenia, the long-term impact of stress, and child abuse. As someone with a vested interested in educational neuroscience, I wanted to talk with an expert on the subject to explore what educators can learn from studying the brain and how it can impact the positive connection between student and teacher.  It was an enlightening conversation to say the least!
