ALEX COX!!!!!! The filmmaker and director of Repo Man, Sid & Nancy, Straight To Hell & Bill The Galactic Hero is this week’s special guest!

This episode is brought to you by Ratio Beerworks & Death Wish Coffee!

In this week’s interview, Damian travels north to Boulder to meet up with filmmaker Alex Cox. Cox has been teaching film at the University of Colorado for the last four years and has recently finished a collaborative project with the students on an adaptation of the Harry Harrison novel of the same name.

We meet up with Alex Cox at his local pub (Under The Sun in Boulder) and over a few beers we have a fantastic chat that covers everything from Repo Man, Elvis Costello, Harry Dean Stanton, film school, teaching young minds, working on Bill The Galactic Hero and oh so much more! It was a fantastic chat, lively and full of energy and interesting directions. We could have chatted for another hour or two if time had allowed it!
