Based On A True Story – Episode 52 – The Oxford Comment

On this episode, we examine the significant role of academic consultants within television and movies, with the help of author and consultant, Diana Walsh Pasulka.  The use of consultants on set has steadily increased since the early twentieth century, and we investigate why this trend has become a popular practice, and how it impacts the audience, the success of the project and its cultural impact on society.
