KEVIN GEIGER | Fretful Laowai: Pandemic Edition

If I Knew You Better

Originally I’d planned to release my NEW follow-up interview with Chris Vogler today. But coronavirus gonna coronavirus, so like many others who could, I had to make a dramatic escape from China to avoid possibly being on lockdown for months on end. So today, fellow displaced Beijinger KEVIN GEIGER and I dig into what’s going on, what might come next, and what we are doing in the meantime.

KEVIN GEIGER | Return of the Fretful Laowai

If I Knew You Better

Returning Champion KEVIN GEIGER swings back by the studio to have an unfiltered chat about, among other things: spinning plates, Brexits big & small, the comedy & tragedy of film financing, the care & feeding of billionaires, the ever-changing China mental map, plus Brendan’s upcoming speaking engagement in Vegas, among other things. We riff far and wide with this one, name-checking Robert Anton Wilson & “model agnosticism", Gordon White & “Fortress America”, Marshall McLuhan’s “The map is not the territory", Korzybski & General Semantics, and the coming relevance of the 2013 Matt Damon dystopian sci-fi movie ELYSIUM to our daily lives.

KEVIN GEIGER | Revenge of the Fretful Laowai Radio Hour!

Big Fish in the Middle Kingdom

Returning champion Kevin Geiger (Magic Dumpling, Peewee Frog; ex-Disney) is back for another freewheeling China chat! We start with an outline and let it rip from there. Big fun, and a big reason I rebooted the podcast. We talk about returning home & expat ennui (hence the “Fretful Laowai” show handle), our new projects, how to (and how NOT to) package and produce a feature film (note: it really helps if you hire a rockstar cinematographer, and then he brings on partners who’ve worked on Green Book, the latest Star Wars, Interstellar, etc) and lastly: how to tell if you’ve been in China for too damn long.
