Mother Night

Special Guests: Bob Weide, Gregory D. Sumner & Mary Kenny

Perhaps the best adaptation of a Kurt Vonnegut work, Mother Night stars Nick Nolte as Howard W. Campbell, Jr. an American playwright whose Nazi broadcasts may have helped America win the war. But, at what cost? Mother Night stars Alan Arkin, Sheryl Lee, Frankie Faison, John Goodman and a great supporting cast.

Also, we’ll be talking to screenwriter Bob Weide (who’s currently wrapping up a documentary on Kurt Vonnegut), Gregory D. Sumner, author of Unstuck in Time A Journey Through Kurt Vonnegut’s Life and Novels, and Mary Kenny, author of Germany Calling A Personal Biography of William Joyce Lord Haw-Haw.

Our special guest co-host is the director and co-producer of Mother Night, Keith Gordon.
