The Price Projection Room (PPR) features engaging conversations about film and television with interesting folks and USC experts from across disciplines (public policy, governance, theatre, and cinema) to look at visual storytelling, media literacy, diversity, and the public good. Hosted by Erroll Southers, PPR reminds us that film and TV are powerful and passionate mediums that not only entertain, but reflect and comment on our society. Culture, policy, and politics affect our everyday lives, ideas about how we live, and how we live together. It also influences what we watch, as well as what we take away from those programs. We want to be smarter about the images and stories we see, and how we can be better together.

Poignant Commentary especially today
Insightful commentary on today's films that is both fun and relevant. It makes you re-examine what you watched. Highly recommend!
The creators of this podcast are geniuses! I'm tired of hearing the same stale movie review shows. It's refreshing hearing a show that features a variety of guests that come from different backgrounds.
When are they going to discuss the movie "Face Off?"
Thoughtful discussions - in a world too often shallow
Erroll Southers is a thoughtful host, bringing together interesting folks from different disciplines to discuss films. It's a thoughtful, engaging, insightful look at the form of entertainment that we spend so much time and money on. It's a way to hear from different perspectives in a fun way. It's a great listen, even if you have seen the film - topics of conversation are deep and multi-layered.
Fun. Intelligent. Compassionate. Love this podcast!
