On March 26, 2014, I became the film critic for Twin Cities Live, a daily talk show based in St. Paul, MN. If you live in the Twin Cities area, you can catch me every Wednesday on KSTP 3-4 pm or the replay at 1:00-2:00 am. If you don't, I post each of the segments on my blog and have the whole collection here. My segment usually consists of two theatrical releases and one you can watch at home.

Thanks for watching!
