Our film-inspired song Nicholas Ray has been featured on the very first episode of The Geekeasy podcast.

Join Adam Stephen Kelly and Dr. Karen Oughton as they present the debut of The Geekeasy Podcast with a rather epic two-hour inaugural episode, featuring THE DARK KNIGHT RISES chit-chat, competitions to win tickets to a London world premiere, as well as every single season of CURB YOUR ENTHUSIASM on DVD, a great interview with writer/director Sean Hogan as he discusses his new film THE DEVIL’S BUSINESS, and much, much more!
