Los Angeles Podcast Festival, part 2 of 3, featuring Janet Varney & Murray Valeriano

Welcome to the second of three special episodes recorded at the 5th annual Los Angeles Podcast Festival, which took place at the Sofitel hotel in Beverly Hills, CA, Sept. 23-25, 2016.  After last year's festival, we didn't dare dream our second visit could match the excitement and amazingly good time we'd had.  But, it did!  Whether you are a podcaster or a podcast fan, we urge you to make your plans now for next year's L.A. Podcast Festival.  We guarantee we'll be there!

In the boisterous Podcast Lab, we recorded segments with our fellow podcasters and special guests throughout the weekend.  Each guest was asked to tell us about one film that influenced them to be who they are.  In this episode, you'll hear from:
