A "treatment," in Hollywood parlance, is a concise overview of a screenplay. On The Treatment, film critic Elvis Mitchell turns the tables and gives the "treatment" to some of the most influential and innovative forces creating movies and popular art and entertainment. Each week, Elvis speaks with an amazing array of guests, discussing everything from their inner conflicts to their interior design. With a straightforward style that understates his vast knowledge, Elvis is able to extract insights, issues and inspirations from even the most introverted guests. Conversations on The Treatment are mostly comfortable, sometimes contentious, but always fascinating.

Customer Reviews

Elvis is the King!

Elvis is a great interviewer because he really cares about the person he is talking with. His style is laidback but passionate. Because he is so trustworthy his shows are very insightful. My only complaint is they need more episodes!

Great to hear this show!

I agree with all the other reviews that regail Elvis' great interviewing prowess, but I also want to recommend this podcast to all the other folks out there like me whose local Public Radio affiliate doesn't broadcast The Treatment. The shows are insightful and highly entertaining! I'm glad I stumbled upon these broadcasts!

Take lessons from this guy....

Elvis knows the business well enough to give ideas and input to his subjects. He should be required listening for anyone wanting to become an interviewer.
