I had a great time visiting with Dave Chen on the /Filmcast, a very high quality film discussion show.

I talked a lot (a lot!) about The Hangover, a movie I really enjoyed. You can listen to the show here; the Hangover review, in which I'm featured, starts an hour and five minutes in.

For a limited time, the first episode of The State is free in iTunes.
