*Alarm Sounds* It’s a very special PMT minisode! The PMT gang is coming to you live(ish) from their “situation room” for an emergency broadcast to remind you there’s still time to donate to the Indiegogo for Broadcast: a film project by PMT host Laura Petro. Tune in and donate while there’s still time!
On this week's minisode, Laura is joined by her friend Jeff Paschal to talk about a short film that she wrote and the two have been working on making for the past year. Broadcast is the story of two fitness instructors who put out an exercise program via satellite to any possible survivors during the apocalypse.
