Episodes 003 and 004 of Off Off Pod Released – Billy Hayes author of Midnight Express

riding_midnight_express_posterIn the latest 2 episodes of Off Off Pod I interview Billy Hayes who was the inspiration for the 1978 movie Midnight Express with Brad Davis.

After escaping from a Turkish prison and making his way back to America, Billy wrote a book about his experiences, and Hollywood came a-knocking — a relatively unknown Oliver Stone wrote the screenplay. Now Billy’s got a new one-man show which recently previewed in Edinburgh called Riding  the Midnight Express which talks about some of his life experiences in greater detail.

Billy’s got some stories!  Enjoy.

Also, at the beginning of episode 004 check out my “ghost” recording.  Let me know what you think it is!
