You like conflicts? This episode gives you God vs. the devil! Husband vs. wife! Producer vs. professional wrestler! Movie producer/writer/graphic novel creator Sandy King Carpenter sits shotgun to talk about her comic book work (e.g. John Carpenter’s Asylum), working with a young John Hughes on “Sixteen Candles,” her working relationship with “Rowdy” Roddy Piper and how she met her husband John Carpenter (as in, John Carpenter). I also learn that, were John Carpenter to come after me, he’d kill me “creatively.”
To tie into the themes Carpenter writes about in John Carpenter’s Asylum, we get Devil Dogs from the South Loop and eat them in front of the old Chess Studios building (2120 S. Michigan Avenue).
