In this installment of our podcast Running Dialogue, Russ Fischer of /Film, Curt Holman of Creative Loafing: Atlanta, and I are joined by Allison Keene who runs Creative Loafing’s TV blog, “The Televanglist“. The topic: Lost. We’re all big fans of the show (although some less than others in response to the season thus far) and this is the geekiest and funniest of the shows we’ve done. Then again, I indulged in my nasty habit of dominating a conversation and revealed myself as the biggest Lost nerd at the table. But I think we had a really great interplay and everyone made great points that I hadn’t considered before.
