Greg Mitchell is a filmmaker, author, journalist and more who seems equally interested in the history of the Atomic Bomb and music. It’s one of the reasons I’m a fan and enjoy talking with him.
He’s written a number of books and produced at least one film about the bomb. His book, THE BEGINNING OR THE END: HOW HOLLYWOOD — AND AMERICA — LEARNED TO STOP WORRYING AND LOVE THE BOMB is garnering attention again due to the highly anticipated (and equally hyped) release of Christopher Nolan’s new film, OPPENHEIMER this week.
Greg is one of the few who’s seen a screening of OPPENHEIMER. He returns to the show today to talk about the man, the movie, the monstrosity and more. And you know I won’t let the interview end without taking a brief musical detour with one of the original writers at CRAWDADDY magazine, the first US music magazine back in the late 60s/early 70s.
