Not long ago I made a sojourn to Lititz, Pennsylvania, the birthplace of the American pretzel.  It's a town in the heart of Pennsylvania Dutch country not far from Philadelphia, another town that takes its pretzels seriously.

Jaye Jayle is the side-project of Even Patterson, the lead singer of Louisville pummelers Young Widows. Jaye Jayle is a chance for Patterson to explore the bleak themes of underground heavy metal with the gritty sounds of Americana. His newest music appears on a split EP alongside label-mate Emma Ruth Rundle titled The Time Between Us

We all remember reading the classic Mark Twain novel: The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn. Nearly a decade ago, the musical production of the book, Big River, set the standard for the musical theater department at Southeast's River Campus. This week, it's being revived for the Campus's ten year anniversary with a whole new cast, and one exception. I sat in on one of their dress rehearsals for an audio postcard, and Dr. Kenn Stilson, professor of theater and director of the show at Southeast, tells me a bit about the show and their returning alumni, Broderick Twiggs.

In this episode of Reel Talk, we discuss our top picks for the 89th Academy Awards, as well as the likely award winners. Will La La Land break the Academy Award winning record for a single ceremony? Will an underdog shock the world? We discuss all of that and more on this week's episode of Reel Talk! See you at the movies!
