The Plot Thickens
Welcome to The Plot Thickens, a documentary podcast from Turner Classic Movies. Each season we'll bring you a story about the movies and the people who make them. Our first season is about a young cinephile who quickly rose to become one of Hollywood's top directors. But Peter Bogdanovich soon found himself a victim of jealousy, hubris, public scorn - and a devastating crime. Along with host Ben Mankiewicz, Peter looks back on his life and tries to make sense of fame and failure. "I'm Still Peter Bogdanovich" is a remarkable story of loss, perseverance, and the solace of cinema.

Please do more interviews of truly interesting and intriguing people before we can no longer get their story. ...Read full review »

I thought this was a really interesting podcast. I listened to every episode and found the host and subject very engaging. Ben Mankowitz is a great host on podcast and TCM. However I have just started a podcast on Polly Platt and well I have to say she deserves major credit for his success.
