What I’m Streaming: 365 Stories I Want To Tell You Before We Both Die.
Independent filmmaker Caveh Zahedi (I Am A Sex Addict) collaborates with composer Evan Ziporyn and producer/writer Leon Neyfakh on a daily, short-form podcast. Zahedi takes full advantage of his musical voice and a treasure trove of industry tales to make 365 Stories I Want To Tell You Before We Both Die a podcast like no other. The stories run for five minutes or less. Each episode contains a golden line of dialogue from Zahedi, like “I love Bill Murray, and I made Him laugh.” I hope Zahedi chooses to keep podcasting after this 365-day series wraps.
