Ron Dawson is a film maker and the host of the Radio Film School
podcast. Ron’s show is a radio documentary series on the subjects
of film making, movies, and cinema. He adds a lot of fun TV and
movie references into his show, which just adds to the richness of
his podcast. I recently met Ron on Blab and when I heard his
podcast for the first time, I had to binge listen to all of his
shows.
