This Week's Podcast Guest: Mary L. Johnson
6 Degrees of Film is a fascinating discussion of film making through the decades—including the cinematography, writing, directing and acting. It also traces the rise of the big studios and the men--the Mayers, the Goldwyns, and the Selznicks--who built these studios. Each anecdote is an incredible snapshot of critical points in American history, and explores the connection between Hollywood and social / political issues.

Mary's writing career extends far beyond film; in fact, she is one of the most prolific writers I have ever met. In addition to 6 Degrees of Film, she also maintains several blogs on topics ranging from politics to gluten-free eating. All of them offer powerful insight into issues that matter; for example, Thezenchrist.blogspot.com explores fundamental challenges that Christians find in the parables of Jesus; and Thefloridacracker.wordpress.com chronicles life as a Florida native.
