"Disputed Passage" (Lloyd C. Douglas) is what this podcast is not.
There are any number of issues to talk about,
yet so many are so particular,
and rally around themselves all kinds of differing opinions.
I'd rather do -- that is, try to do in a small way -- something of what Claude Berri actually did in "Jean de Florette/Manon of the Spring" (1986), which was, in his own words,
to scrape down to the universal:
our human nature and suffering, in common -- the tie that binds.
After this cast, I am taking a short break.
But it's really just "pre-production" time, for the next season of,
"Fireball XL 5".
