Episode 37 – Lizbette Ocasio Russe

 La Profesora

A literal doctor of movies and culture, Lizbette shares her upbringing. How she fell in love with horror movies and how film is changing today. We discuss Black Mirror, Get Out, Stranger Things, Lesbian Pulp Fiction and many other topics!

Lizbette may be one of the coolest women I’ve ever met. Probably because she’s living the dream of studying movies and culture. Ya know? The thing we all wanted to do as kids, tell the world what we thought about movies.    One thing I love about her is that she never stops thinking. She’s one of those people that can’t just ‘watch’ a movie. No, she has to analyze and connect dots the entire time. It’s apparent when she discusses movies, that she is gifted at finding influences in movies, from the score, to the writing to the acting.  Even while we were recording I would see her gaze into the distance and you could see the wheels spinning.

She recently even published an article about campy horror, whatever that is, lol. Check it out here!

I wish I could discuss more about horror in this blog post, but I can’t. Horror scares me and makes me afraid of my shadow, so I don’t really watch it. But I will say this. Lizbette is an inspiration of mine. Seeing her enjoying her life and fulfilling her dream lit a fire under my ass to get to work on this podcast and make it better.

Anyways, I hope you enjoy the episode.

Much Love,

Raf
