Our hosts are Kent Smith (award-winning director, writer, producer, photographer), who has worked on such tv shows and feature films as Homeland, Mr. Mercedes, Outcast, Tusk, and Max bring his technical skills to the table. Laura Truman comes to the table with her fantastic laugh on life and incredible film knowledge (Film Critic and old school film collector). Patrick G. Keenan (award-winning actor), who you might have seen in Blind Side, Homeland, Tropical Cop Tales, and Mike, is no stranger to the stage, and he brings more jokes to the already funny show.

Almost Famous is a 2000 American comedy-drama film written and directed by Cameron Crowe and starring Billy Crudup, Frances McDormand, Kate Hudson, and Patrick Fugit. It tells the story of a teenage journalist writing for Rolling Stone in the early 1970s, his touring with the fictitious rock band Stillwater, and his efforts to get his first cover story published. The film is semi-autobiographical, as Crowe himself was a teenage writer for Rolling Stone. It is based on his experiences touring with rock bands Poco, the Allman Brothers Band, Led Zeppelin, Eagles, and Lynyrd Skynyrd. Crowe has discussed how during this period he lost his virginity, fell in love, and met his musical heroes—these events represented in the film as happening to William Miller (Fugit), the boyish main character.
