Episode 110: Martin Scorsese Part Two (w/Nick Digilio)

Back once again after only a month and a half, talk show radio hero extraordinare, WGN's Nick Digilio returns once again to discuss the post-GOODFELLAS career of Martin Scorsese. We start with CAPE FEAR and go all the way to THE WOLF OF WALL STREET, and everything in-between.  Digressions galore, but a real highlight of this episode comes at about the 59 minute mark when Nick brings up an infamous studio publicist who loved to let the expletives fly!  When he discusses Frank Casey at one point, it might've been the hardest I've laughed on this show in a long time.  But really, this is all about Scorsese's fascinating and influential career as continued from Part One. Nick and I disagree a couple of times, particularly on the last film he has put out as of 2016. Truly hope you enjoy this memorable conversation, because as always, talking with Nick on my own show is something that remains very special to me indeed.
