  • Trailer: Gooned

    From the team that brought you Texas Twiggy comes Gooned, a podcast about the Troubled Teen Industry.

    Gooned is a deep dive into an industry with blood on its hands. 

    The Troubled Teen Industry (TTI) is a network of profit-incentivized behavior modification facilities for youth, ranging from wilderness programs to therapeutic boarding schools. The decades-old industry uses predatory tactics to capitalize on families in crisis and victimize hundreds of thousands of children and teens every year. 

    Gooned is available now wherever you get your podcasts.

    Gooned is researched, reported, and edited by Emma Lehman. Original music for the show was created by Olivia Springberg. This trailer was produced by Grayton Newman . Episode artwork was created by Sam DoeSarah Lukowski and Avery Erskine copyedited and consulted on the show.

  • The Morning with Gold in its Mouth

    It’s the film we all know so well: the renowned horror classic The Shining. Uncover the secrets and backstories behind this movie, from the original terrible reviews, to Kubrick’s temper, to a particularly tasteless breakup at the airport. 


    Why the name? The infamous typewriter scene where Jack types and re-types reams of paper with the phrase “all work and no play makes Jack a dull boy” was reshot with different translations for several languages. The Italian version saw Jack writing “Il mattino ha l'oro in bocca,” or "The morning has gold in its mouth."

  • How Would You Like to be in a Movie?

    In which Shelley throws and attends some life-altering parties, models a swimsuit for disaster relief, dates a Beatle, and sells her boyfriend’s “unremarkable” paintings to two directors in disguise. And, I write and send some old-fashioned snail mail.

  • The Texas Twiggy

    Shelley Alexis Duvall was born on July 7th, 1949 in Fort Worth, Texas to an insurance broker and one of Houston’s first woman real estate agents. 70 years later, I would stumble across one of her films on Amazon Prime and Google her name. 3 years after that, and I am sitting in the passenger seat of her brother’s car, 1,500 miles from my own apartment, idling in front of her childhood home. How did it all come to be, and what is Texas Twiggy?

  • Trailer

    Shelley Duvall is most known for her portrayal of Wendy Torrance in Stanley Kubrick's 1980 film The Shining, a performance that launched her into the public consciousness and furthered an already prolific career. But after decades in film, production, writing, composing, and the release of two musical albums, Duvall seemingly dropped off the face of the earth... Until a disastrous 2016 appearance on the Dr. Phil show, so maligned that it never aired. Texas Twiggy dives deep into the life and work of Shelley Duvall, with plenty of twists and turns along the way.
