Growler Media Presents: A Geppetto Studios Production

Escape From New York Minute celebrates and analyzes the 1981 dystopian classic Escape From New York one minute at a time.

The Escape From New York Minute crew is Eric Deutsch (co-host and co-producer), Molly Bailen (co-host), and Brad Mendenhall (co-producer).

Tune in to hear us talk about Snake, Cabbie, The Duke, Brain, Maggie, and the President; along with John Carpenter’s incredible directing and ‘80s synth soundtrack, the classic performances, bleak location sets, weird escape pods, cars with chandeliers on the hood, eye patches, and the movie’s incredible behind-the-scenes backstory.

Plus bonus content like interviews with Oscar-winning cinematographer Dean Cundey, actor in the Broadway show scene (and voice of Squidward!) Rodger Bumpass, and foley editor Nicholas James, and discussions about the opening deleted scene and the trailer.

So sip your cup of Chock Full O’ Nuts coffee with Eric and Molly as they welcome great guests every week, including authors, professors, fellow podcasters, and even the inventor of the official replica Lifeclock wrist watch.

Subscribe so you never miss an episode! And be on time. Stay out of the sewers. And we’ll meet you on the other side of the wall.
