My Interview With Barak Goodman, the Director of 'Oklahoma City'

Oklahoma City opened on Friday in New York and Los Angeles, and tonight it plays on PBS. The documentary recalls the horrific terrorist attack in the titular city 22 years ago, but writer-director Barak Goodman also connects the dots to previous incidents, like Ruby Ridge and Waco, which inspired the bombing. At a time when anti-government and alt-right groups are starting to sprout up, Oklahoma City is a pretty timely film. Goodman and I talked about that and several other things, including whether he has sympathy for Timothy McVeigh. You can read our interview over at MEL.
