The Hero's Journey℠ Podcast

Mar 26, 2024

Study your case file, steam up a pot of fava beans, and put the lotion in the basket. This is the Hero’s Journey℠ of The Silence of the Lambs.

About Special Guest Dan Butler: Dan Butler is an award-winning writer, producer, director, and actor with a career spanning four decades. He’s probably best known for his portrayal of Bulldog Briscoe on one of the most beloved sitcoms of all time, Frasier. But he’s also played all over the country in dozens of professional theater productions from Neil Simon to Shakespeare to Stephen King. He’s played roles in such TV shows as House, Star Trek Voyager, The X-Files and in films including (but not limited to): Enemy of the State, Blonde, and Karl Rove, I Love You (which he also co-wrote, co-directed, and produced). And, most significantly for us, he played Roden, the Entomologyst who identifies the enigmatic Death’s Head Moth in Jonathan Demme’s 1991 opus, and the subject of this episode, The Silence of the Lambs.

The Hero's Journey℠ Podcast is a fun, insightful look at stories through the lens of Joseph Campbell’s world-renowned mythological framework, hosted by writers/BFFs Jeff Garvin and Dan Zarzana.
