Podcast Interview with Breaking Bad's Vince Gilligan

Breaking Bad mastermind Vince Gilligan and series actor Anna Gunn (Skylar) were guest panelists at IBM Pulse interviewed by giddy BB fan-boy / tech journalist David PogueMy co-worker Delaney Turner and I were also given the chance to sit down with the series creator Vince Gilligan to talk shop in Las Vegas' MGM Grand arena. Delaney is a huge Breaking Bad fan, like David, and one of my favorite series of all time is The X-Files. What can I say about Vince? What a nice guy! He could not have been more gracious with his time and open with his thoughts. We discussed what makes an A-1 day, 35mm vs digital camera tech, his background and formative years working on The X-Files with Chris Carter, a bit about his television writing philosophy as well as his favorite episodes from these two landmark television series. He also gives a few hints about new fan engagement and "second screen" plans for his upcoming Breaking Bad spin-off Better Call Saul. 

Here are Delaney and I am mugging for the camera with Anna and Vince. Trust me, I'm smiling on the inside. My co-workers Felicia Haggarty and Melani Luedtke-Taylor also had a bit of fun with "blue ice" gumballs. 

Lastly, take a look at the fan questions submitted by the audience with the hashtag #askbad on twitter.  Fun stuff.

Have an A-1 day,
