In this first episode of the new season, we meet the irrepressible Lloyd Kaufman, co-founder of Troma Entertainment and director of The Toxic Avenger.
Find out why Lloyd loves pirates – except state-sponsored ones; why vertical integration, media consolidation and the end of Net Neutrality would kill Troma; and why Lloyd is skeptical that crowdfunding systems like Patreon have a role in crowdfunding independent movies.
Check out Lloyd’s movies on his YouTube channel!
