On the new episode of the Talkhouse Film podcast, as she winds up the Kickstarter campaign for Axis, her debut feature as director, the multi-talented Aisha Tyler talks with fellow actress-turned-director Amber Tamblyn, whose Paint It Black premieres in June at the LA Film Festival. In their very entertaining and funny conversation, the two discuss their respective paths to the director’s chair, great L.A. movies (and Keeping Up with the Kardashians), why Amber is Aisha’s “Oreo tit,” how Aisha is a “machine,” and much more.
