#131: To Kill a Mockingbird (1962) w/Tom Santopietro

Author Tom Santopietro, the man behind Why To Kill a Mockingbird Matters, sits down with the Ticklish crew to discuss Robert Mulligan’s 1962 adaptation of Harper Lee’s classic. The group discusses Gregory Peck’s career-defining role as Atticus Finch, the way the movie gives us the children’s POV, and why the sequel novel isn’t necessarily worth reading.
Also, listen all the way to the end as we’re giving a bite-sized sneak peek of our interview with Jean Louise “Scout” Finch herself, actress Mary Badham which you can listen to exclusively on Patreon with a full transcript at
