Interviewed the man himself, Joe Dante, at his house in Hollywood. He’s such a friendly guy, and it was great talking to him. I recorded our 45-minute long chat on my iPod using iTalk. Unfortunately, the iPod is basically a hard drive, so every so often, it “spins up” to cache things. As the iTalk is mounted right on top of it, you can hear the hard drive spin up multiple times during the interview, in the background. Eeeks. Looks like I need to research a better solution (i.e. a microphone that plugs into the iTalk)!
