There are two guests on this week's installment of The Chauncey DeVega Show. It is full of goodness, teaching, learning, and great conversations.

 
The first talk features Jonny Campbell. He has directed HBO's recent miniseries Casual Vacancy based on the work of Harry Potter's J.K. Rowling. 
 
Campbell also directed the zombie TV series In the Flesh on the BBC, in addition to the classic Dr. Who episode Vincent and the Doctor.
 
This conversation was great fun. Chauncey and Jonny have a great dialogue and to and fro about the choices that a director makes in helping to create a final product, the choices one makes in terms of adapting a book to film, life lessons learned in the business, advice for intrepid screenplay and script writers, the zombie genre, and other related matters.
 
The second part of the podcast is a sit down at the virtual bar with brother Mr. Bill Fletcher Jr. 
 
Mr. Fletcher is the former director of the activism and advocacy group known as TransAfrica. He has also been on the editorial staff of the print and online magazine known as Black Commentator. Bill is a wonderful guest. He also shares some great mentoring, wisdom, advice, and guidance about social advocacy work, aging gracefully, the importance of labor unions to American progress, labor, the color line, and how social change workers can maintain positive energy in the face of adversity.
 
Great stuff.
 
In this episode of The Chauncey DeVega Show, Chauncey also updates folks about his local neighborhood Sherlock Holmes mystery, his cooking mistake and (then) salvation from last week's podcast, and gets angry about all of the noise that seems to occur whenever he wants to do his promos and outros for The Chauncey DeVega Show.
