Listen to “Brian’s Song,” a new episode on the Film at Fifty podcast

I was pleased to be a guest once more on the “Film at Fifty” podcast, which discusses films from 50 years ago.

On this episode, I join host Brian Rowe for a discussion of the extremely popular TV movie Brian’s Song (1971), which featured lauded performances by Billy Dee Williams and Jimmy Caan as football players for the Chicago Bears who form a lasting friendship despite their on-the-field rivalry and different backgrounds.

Though aspects of the film haven’t aged well, it’s still worth talking about due to the strong performances of the famous leads.

Listen to the episode on Spotify, Apple Podcasts, or wherever you listen to podcasts.

Reflecting on the 2021 AHRA Conference: “Region”

I’m grateful for having had the opportunity to present my paper, “Southwestern Fantasy: The Strange Case of Pueblo Revival Architecture in New Mexico,” for the 2021 Architectural Humanities Research Association (AHRA) conference “Region” at Loughborough University, UK.

Though the conference was virtual, I’m very glad for being able to “attend” and learn from so many exciting scholars in the field of architecture and urban studies. You can browse from a list of the conference’s abstracts here.

Read “A humble request: Support ‘A Mouthful of Air’ (2021 film)” in The Usonian

Tomorrow, Friday, October 29, marks the cinematic release of A Mouthful of Air, a moving film about an important subject by my friend Amy Koppelman.

It’s a challenging film, but eminently worthwhile, and I’m honored to have been involved in a small part of its production.

Learn more about AMOA in the latest issue of my newsletter, and please support this film if you can be safe at the movie theater.
