Warren Etheredge has been hosting his digital watering hole, “The High Bar,” for three seasons now. The interview series covers filmmakers, authors and other cultural movers and shakers.
Beginning Monday “The High Bar” will be broadcast on KBTC public television (physically located right next door to The News Tribune, I might add.)
Etheredge is one of the best questioners/listeners I know and has an impressive tally of over 1,500 interviews with the likes of Jodie Foster, Gary Oldman, Susie Bright and Mike Daisey.
Etheredge promotes “slow culture.” His motto: Smarter audiences make a better world. In addition to “The High Bar” and The Warren Report he runs a film school, curated the 1 Reel Film Festival, staged plays, published books and hosts more events every year than I even knew existed. Yes, he is one busy man. And he knows everyone.
Tacoma’s Jason Ganwich is the executive producer and Bates Technical College’s Digital Media program provides production interns for the show when it films in Tacoma at bars like Maxwell’s (documentary filmmaker Tiffany Shlain) and Tempest Lounge (lesbian pulp fiction author Ann Bannon).
“The High Bar” will air on Monday at midnight beginning February 6. The first show features actor Larry Miller who played the father on filmed-in-Tacoma “10 Things I Hate About You.”
