They Killed Lincoln: A Limited Series Podcast

Sample Materials

The Talking Buster Keaton podcast was produced by Alek Lev and Justin Asher, with Alek hosting and Justin sound engineering, mixing, and writing and performing original music. The series follows the early career of film legend Buster Keaton; each episode covers one of his 19 short films and includes an interview with an artist, historian, writer, or expert. Guests included Teller (from Penn & Teller), actor Paul Dooley, film critic Leonard Maltin, and Buster’s own granddaughter, Melissa Talmadge Cox. The episode we have highlighted here with Professor Basinger presents a detailed discussion of Keaton’s methods and style. In the words of Bob Borgen, Keaton expert and former president of the International Buster Keaton Society, “It’s the best half hour I’ve ever heard on Buster in my life.”
