Ep 605: Margo Martindale • City Winery's Michael Dorf

Mar 26, 2020

[7 mins. 7 secs.] The founder & CEO of City Winery, Michael Dorf, calls in to discuss the current crisis that arts organizations like his are facing at the moment. The Winery was supposed to open a new location in New York City on Pier 57 and another major facility up in the Hudson Valley this very week. Everything is up in the air, including the very future of this concert/wine/food business. Visit City Winery's website to keep appraised of their news and how to get involved.

[24 mins. 15 secs.] Up next, the cast of a new 'Fishing Town Noir' or 'New England Noir': "Blow The Man Down". I'm thrilled to bring on actors Margo Martindale, Morgan Saylor and Sophie Lowe. Mary Beth (Saylor) and Priscilla Connolly (Lowe) attempt to cover up a gruesome run-in with a dangerous man. To conceal their crime, the sisters must go deep into the criminal underbelly of their hometown, uncovering the town's darkest secrets. The film's cast also includes former Filmwax Radio guest Will Brittain, in addition to Annette O'Toole and June Squibb. It's co-writte & co-directed by Bridget Savage Cole and Danielle Krudy. It's currently available for streaming on Amazon Prime Video.

[48 mins. 27 secs.] Last up, the team behind a new documentary called "Dosed". After many years of prescription medications failed her, a suicidal woman turns to underground healers to try and overcome her depression, anxiety, and opioid addiction with illegal psychedelic medicine such as magic mushrooms and iboga. Adrianne’s first dose of psilocybin mushrooms catapulted her into an unexpected world of healing where plant medicines are redefining our understanding of mental health and addiction. Joining me in this segment is the film's director Tyler Chandler, the film's co-producer & co-editor Nicholas Meyers as well as the film's subject, Adrianne.
