Leif Hansen is a curious fellow.

Curious in that he asks a lot of questions.

So it’s a good thing that he’s got a podcast, and special guests to field his questions.

Wonderosity is Hansen’s podcast, where he wonders as he wanders out under the sky.

And today, he found me. And we talked. About movies. Especially: Wings of Desire, Punch-drunk Love, The Big Kahuna, Babette’s Feast (although I admit, I said a little too much about the ending).

Here I’ll spoil the big surprise for you: I never once mentioned The New World.

You can find a description of the show here.

And you can download the full conversation here.

It was broadcast live, which means that Hansen didn’t have a chance to edit a couple of technical hiccups, but they’re minor, and that just adds to the truth of it: That it was a spontaneous, lively chat.

About Jeffrey Overstreet

Jeffrey Overstreet has two passions: writing fiction, and celebrating art — music, cinema, photography, literature — through writing and teaching. He is the author of a “memoir of dangerous moviegoing” — Through a Screen Darkly. And his four-novel fantasy series, The Auralia Thread, which begins with Auralia's Colors, was published by Random House. He speaks at universities and conferences around the world about understanding art through eyes of faith. He is earning his MFA in Creative Writing at Seattle Pacific University, where he has worked for 11 years as an editor, writer, and communications project manager. His work has been recognized in The New Yorker, TIME, The Seattle Times, IMAGE, Ravi Zacharias International — and Christianity Today, where he served as a film journalist for more than a decade. He recently began a weekly column called "Listening Closer" for Christ and Pop Culture.
