Interview: Ike Barinholtz talks “The Oath”

Ike Barinholtz, one of the Mad Minds from MAD TV, has a remarkable resume. He has credits for every creative role in television production and he has worked as a voice actor, a romantic interest, comic relief, and as a strong action character (Suicide Squad, anyone?). Currently he is making the rounds to promote his latest project: “The Oath”, a dark political comedy. (He is the producer, writer, director, and lead character.)  I sat down with Barinholtz and we discussed the sensitive topic of politics, we play a rapid fire question game, and there might be an Obama & Trump impression in there.

Interview: Ben Dickey talks “Blaze”

You shouldn’t count Blaze Foley among the legendary musicians who never made it to the top. He is also properly at home in the more exclusive list of legendary musicians who died before their time. A talented songwriter and musician, Foley was popular among his friends and respected by other musicians who have recorded a number of his songs on award-winning albums of their own. Ethan Hawke has produced, written and directed a new film, starring Ben Dickey, that tells the story of Blaze Foley. Ben Dickey visited the ICTN studios and talked with me about life, music and Blaze Foley.
