74: Weirdos with Jason Armstrong and Sharon Belle
This week, we're back on the road with Bruce McDonald for 2016's Weirdos. Cam's on the road himself this week, being dreadfully witty with a bunch of British A-listers, so the fabulous Jason Armstrong steps in as Becky's Co-host. Jason brings along actress Sharon Bell from the popular webseries' Swerve and Carmilla. We talk Sharon's fascination with Molly Parker's magnetic performance, choosing to set a film in a specific period, point of view switch and shoehorning in Andy Warhol. Stay tuned to hear someone other than Becky torpedo their chances for Telefilm funding. You can find Weirdos on iTunes.
This week's end credit music is Last Song by Edward Bear. They're in the Canadian Song Writers Hall of Fame. Check them out.
