Sept. 3, 2015: Rachel McIntosh/Adam Tavel/Mikel Wisler/MIFF: Postpartum

Matt and filmmaker Mikel Wisler talk
about his new movie, "Unidentified"
Rachael L. McIntosh joins us to talk about "Little Yellow Stickies," the first in her three-book series, "Security Through Absurdity," which follows Jocelyn McLaren, who unwittingly and unknowingly participates in crimes after going to work for a U.S. defense contractor.
These books touch on a number of issues in the news as of late, and Rachel looks at what led her to writing the book and readers' reactions.

Mikel Wisler is a filmmaker whose new book, "Unidentified," is now being produced as his first feature film. The book is about alien abductions and the pursuit of the truth to save two children. Wisler looks at the process of going from book to film, the casting of the lead character, and his own thoughts on whether we're alone in the universe.

Poet Adam Tavel is next, and with dozens of his poems in a number of publications, we could likely devote the rest of the show to him. He talks about his new book, "Plash and Levitation," upcoming readings in Maryland and Alaska, and his secret to a great poetry presentation.

BONUS: Our Blackout Bootleg sessions continue, this time at the Massachusetts Independent Film Festival. We talk to writer/director Izzy Lee and actress Diana Porter, for the short thriller film "Postpartum."
