Broken Projector: Greater Than All The Magic

Robin Williams Hook

TriStar Pictures

We wanted to discuss magic, laughter and the difficult stuff that lies in between on this week’s show because Robin Williams was so much more than a comedian. One of the very best, to be sure, but he was like a Guinness World Record holder who somehow found time for a dozen other hobbies. Which he then mastered.

So what was supposed to be a normal-length segment ballooned into a winding conversation about  a tireless artist’s power to find a human connection in everything he did. We talk funny stuff, dark stuff, and Geoff explains how Williams in Mrs. Doubtfire made him understand his own dad.

Plus, we speak with To Be Takei director Jennifer M. Kroot about chronicling Sulu in his natural habitat (and a little on how to hide in plain sight with a massive camera on your shoulder).

You should follow the show (@brokenprojector), Geoff (@drgmlatulippe) and Scott (@scottmbeggs) on Twitter for more on a daily basis.
