The writer and broadcaster Bill Richardson discusses his short story collection I Saw Three Ships: West End Stories (Talonbooks, 2019), and more, with Joseph Planta.

I Saw Three Ships: West End Stories by Bill Richardson (Talonbooks, 2019).

Text of introduction by Joseph Planta:

I am Planta: On the Line, in Vancouver, British Columbia, at TheCommentary.ca.

Bill Richardson joins me now. The writer and broadcaster recently published a collection, I Saw Three Shops: West End Stories. They are eight short stories linked because of their setting, Vancouver’s West End neighbourhood, set around Christmas, featuring characters from different walks of life. The stories speak so evocatively of that part of the city, about the people who have been drawn to there over the last fifty years or so, and just how the neighbourhood is changing, much like other areas of Vancouver. The book is sentimental in some parts, as it is melancholy. The characters are real in that they’re people we know, people we’ve seen, people who live near us. I’ll ask Mr. Richardson about these various characters, and how this collection came about. Bill Richardson is an award-winning writer, who received the Stephen Leacock Medal for Humour in 1994 for his book Bachelor Brothers’ Bed and Breakfast. He is likely best remembered for his years on CBC Radio, where beginning in 1992 he began as a regular contributor and guest host on Vicki Gabereau’s program, going on to host programs such as As You Like It, Richardson’s Roundup, Bunny Watson, Saturday Afternoon at the Opera, and Sunday Afternoon in Concert, among other programs. John MacLachlan Gray said of Bill that his is “one of the most distinctive voices in the country.” The Twitter handle is @billric36028987. This book is published by Talonbooks. Please welcome to the Planta: On the Line program, Bill Richardson; Mr. Richardson, good morning.

https://www.facebook.com/riverstoridges/?fref=ts-------------------------------------------------Cinema Toast Crunch Podcast gave us a shoutout on their show the other day and we really appreciate it!

Cinema Toast Crunch is another podcast produced in WV. They do reviews of movies that have been out for a while, and could be from any decade. At the beginning they list new releases and current movie news, but then go and watch the movie and come back to give their immediate impression. Really cool setup.Garvis Reed II is a total movie buff and expert. Garvis Reed III is the showrunner and his wife Kayla adds some lively commentary to round out the show. The show is not always family friendly, of course all movies aren't either, but the info is top notch. Look for Cinema Toast Crunch Podcast on Facebook. A direct link is in the show notes. Right now they are making predictions for the Oscars!

Our Famous West Virginian was suggested by Garvis Reed II, of the Cinema Toast Crunch Podcast: Today, Lawrence Kasdan

Lawrence Edward Kasdan (born January 14, 1949) is an American screenwriter, director and producer. He is best known as co-writer of the films The Empire Strikes Back, Raiders of the Lost Ark, and Return of the Jedi. Kasdan co-wrote the Star Wars sequel trilogy film Star Wars: The Force Awakens, and will co-write the series' Han Solo spin-off film.

He has been nominated for three Oscars: twice for Best Original Screenplay for The Big Chill and Grand Canyon and once for Best Adapted Screenplay for The Accidental Tourist. He is the father of directors Jake Kasdan and Jon Kasdan, and the father-in-law of musician Inara George.

Kasdan was born in Miami, Florida, the son of Sylvia Sarah (née Landau), an employment counselor, and Clarence Norman Kasdan, who managed retail electronics stores. His brother is the writer/producer Mark Kasdan. He was raised in Morgantown, West Virginia, where he graduated from Morgantown High School in 1966.

Upon graduation, Kasdan was unable to find a teaching position, so he became an advertising copywriter, a profession he did not enjoy, but remained in for five years (even picking up a Clio Award along the way), first in Detroit and later in Los Angeles where he tried to interest Hollywood in his screenplays.

Kasdan's introduction into the film business came in the mid-1970s when after being rejected 67 times, his script for The Bodyguard was sold to Warner Bros. as a vehicle for Diana Ross and Steve McQueen. The script became stuck in development and became one of several screenplays successively called "the best un-made script in Hollywood"; it was eventually produced as a 1992 film starring Whitney Houston and Kevin Costner.

After he sold his screenplay Continental Divide to Steven Spielberg, George Lucas commissioned Kasdan to write the screenplay for Raiders of the Lost Ark. Lucas then hired Kasdan to complete the screenplay for his Star Wars sequel The Empire Strikes Back (1980) after the death of Leigh Brackett, who wrote the first draft. Kasdan made his directing debut with Body Heat (1981), which he also wrote. Lucas later commissioned Kasdan to write the screenplay for Return of the Jedi (1983).

Kasdan is known for both writing and directing his films, which have ranged from Westerns and romantic comedies to thought-provoking dramas. He has received four Academy Award nominations, for screenplays to The Big Chill, Grand Canyon, and The Accidental Tourist, for which he also earned a nomination for Best Picture. Grand Canyon won the Golden Bear at the 42nd Berlin International Film Festival.

He has cast Kevin Kline in six of his films, William Hurt in four, Kevin Costner and James Gammon in three.

From 1994 to 2003, he made a set of films that, in contrast to the hits he had in the 1980s, failed to break the bank in receipts; among these films were Wyatt Earp and Dreamcatcher, the latter based on the Stephen King best seller. 1995's French Kiss did gross $100 million.

He made cameo appearances as the lawyer of River Phoenix's character in I Love You To Death and in James L. Brooks' comedy As Good As It Gets as the fed-up psychiatrist of Jack Nicholson's novelist. In 2001, Kasdan was the recipient of the Austin Film Festival's Distinguished Screenwriter Award. In 2006, Kasdan received the Laurel Award for Screenwriting Achievement from the Writers Guild of America.

Kasdan directed the 2012 dramedy Darling Companion, starring Diane Keaton and Kevin Kline.

In October 2013, it was announced that JJ Abrams had taken over screenwriting duties for Star Wars Episode VII (Star Wars: The Force Awakens), working alongside Kasdan, following the departure of Michael Arndt. In November 2015, Kasdan stated that after his involvement with the untitled Han Solo - Star Wars story film, he will leave the Star Wars universe, and will not be involved in Episodes VIII/IX.

This week, in honor of two years on the air, yes its almost exactly two years ago this week that I had my first show, in honor of that we have a special show with limited commercial interruption. I am replaying two of my favorite interviews of the past two years. The first one is with Susan Eisenhower, the granddaughter of former US President Dwight David Eisenhower who was also Supreme Allied Commander of Allied forces in Europe during the second world war to include overall command of Operation Overlord, the allied invasion of France.

The second interview is with former New Mexico Governor, US Ambassador to the United Nations and Energy Secretary Bill Richardson, the occasion was the release of his book in late 2013, How to Sweet-Talk a Shark.

If you want to write to me to give your feedback about anything we talked about on the show write to makingsenseletters@yahoo.com and I may read your email on the air next week, again that's makingsenseletters@yahoo.com

Breakfast With Bill Richardson

Play
Read more
A celebrated author as well as a former Cabinet official, U.N. ambassador and two-term governor, Bill Richardson earned fame as the man to turn to when diplomacy isn't enough. Richardson's new book, "How to Sweet-Talk a Shark," details his successes and failures in delicate but tough bargaining with the likes of Saddam Hussein, Fidel Castro, the Taliban and two generations of North Korean leaders.
At this breakfast for Milken Institute Associates and invited guests, presented in partnership with the RAND Corp., Richardson will recall the highlights and lowlights of his experiences leading high-stakes negotiations in some of the world's most hostile places. The discussion will be moderated by Ambassador Charles Ries, a RAND senior fellow who has represented the United States in Iraq, Greece and Europe.
