The Authentic Audio Podcast With Special Guest Filmmaker Rob Montague



This episode features my conversation with filmmaker Rob Montague. Rob is a co-founder of the production company Late Morning Films and is in the process of creating a new documentary called: ‘SECRET IDENTITY: The Origin of SUPERMAN’

The film will examine the early days of author Jerry Siegel and artist Joe Shuster, the young dreamers living in Cleveland, Ohio, whose creation has shaped the imaginations of generations. Besides talking about this latest project towards the latter half of the conversation, Rob and I have a boisterous, fun and wide-ranging conversation about:

- The importance of artistic integrity
- The danger and balance of consuming media
- Rob's journey from touring musician to filmmaker
- A deep analysis of Pauly Shore’s character (Stanley "Stoney" Brown) in Encino Man
- The absurdity and beauty of being human
- How inspiration and artistic expression is linked to the ether
- Our love for Carl Sagan and how navigate the overpopulation of the earth
