Leo Brady of AMovieGuy.com talks SXSW as the guest on Ian Simmons’ “Kicking the Seat” podcast



Today, Ian catches up with indefatigable Chicago film critic Leo Brady, who recently returned from the nine-day cinema cyclone known as South By Southwest! Leo and his wife, Christina, run A Movie Guy.com, and over the course of a very long week, they screened dozens of movies and conducted several red carpet interviews and sit-down conversations with filmmakers. Leo talks to Ian about the experience of SXSW from the perspective of an out-of-town critic, and what it takes to provide wall-to-wall coverage that’s as close to live as possible without the infrastructure of a powerful media outlet.

Also, Ian recommends another SXSW-centric chat Leo did with You’ll Probably Agree, which you can find on YouTube. It’s more film-centric than this episode, and just as enjoyable.
