Episode 43 – (Melissa Maerz) “The Oral History of Richard Linklater’s Dazed & Confused”

Evan Kidd sits down with Melissa Maerz. Melissa has worked as an editor at Spin and Rolling Stone, a staff writer for Entertainment Weekly and the Los Angeles Times, and a supervising producer on HBO’s Vice News Tonight. She was a founding editor at New York magazine’s Vulture website. She recently released the book Alright, Alright, Alright: The Oral History of Richard Linklater’s Dazed and Confused. Alright, Alright, Alright is the story of how this iconic film came together and why it worked. Combining behind-the-scenes photos and insights from nearly the entire cast, including Matthew McConaughey, Parker Posey, Ben Affleck, Joey Lauren Adams, and many others, and with full access to Linklater’s Dazed archives, it offers an inside look at how a budding filmmaker and a cast of newcomers made a period piece that would feel timeless for decades to come.
