I finally give you my interview with a critic about critics! I recorded this with Matt Paprocki in July when I was returning from TennoCon and I’ve been waiting to release this with the new site. Since the new site is up, here you go! 

As much as I might have railed on critics in the past, Matt and I have known each other for a long time and fortunately we always end up with the “agree to disagree” then move on to the next activity. (The Internet as a whole could learn from us!) This was my first opportunity to actually meet him, so I took advantage of the situation to chat with a critic about critics and movie criticism in general.
