Join us for a conversation with Academy Award winning actor Ethan Hawke and Treefort Media founder Kelly Garner as they discuss Treefort’s Audible Original podcast series FISHPRIEST. In this SXSW Session, Ethan and Kelly discuss the making of the audio drama, including the inspiration for this gritty, scripted crime story and its unique soundscape. Set in 1993, Tommy “Fishpriest” Barth (Hawke) is a bounty hunter and former undercover cop in the Bronx — and just when he thinks he’s pulling his life back together, a dangerous crime syndicate reappears and threatens to tear his life and his city apart. The series is created and written by Mike Batistick. Panel moderator: Brittany Jones-Cooper.
