Podpistil: Rex Pickett Post-Sideways

Podpistils are short pips to podcasts I've listened to lately.
Rex Pickett on Brad Listi's Other People Podcast from January 2012 (iTunes link here). Pickett tells Listi the Cinderella story that began after Alexander Payne and Jim Taylor made his autobiographical novel Sideways into a bourgie-darling, pinot-pimping movie and explains why his sequel to Sideways (titled Vertical, natch) is self-pubbed and as yet un-filmed. A highly cautionary 75 minutes of un-spun dish on rejection, debt, agents, serendipity, dollars, rights, location boom, spit bucket celebrity and failure-to-cash-in.
