Episode 070 – Interview: Karyn Kusama & Phil Hay, & Sam Carpenter Perspectives

This week, Ryan hosts the Emmy-nominated director of “Yellowjackets,” Karyn Kusama, and her husband screenwriter, Phil Hay. The husband-wife filmmaking duo are genre film legends, with their most recent collaborations as “The Invitation” (2015) and “Destroyer” (2018). Slasher fans may be familiar with Kusama’s work as a director with “Jennifer’s Body” (2009). “Destroyer,” starring Nicole Kidman, is one of Ryan’s favorite films. In addition, Ryan is joined later on the show by two Patreons, Ryan Young and Joey Noberini. Ryan often puts forth pro-Sam Carpenter sentiments on this podcast. However, because she is a divisive figure, rounding out the debate about the character felt necessary. Ryan Young brings a dissent to Sam Carpenter, while Ryan C. Showers provides a rebuttal. The episode is introduced by Joey Vallese, a recurring guest on the podcast. His upcoming queer-horror book, “It Came from the Closet,” features an essay on “Jennifer’s Body,” which makes Joey well-suited to introduce Kusama and Hay.
