On the Geektown Radio podcast this week I am joined by Bex from TristaBytes to chat through the usual weekly tv, film and gaming news, plus a look at the next week on tv. We also have an exclusive interview with Mac Quayle, Ryan Murphy’s “go-to” composer for a host of series from the recently released Netflix show ‘The Politician’, to ‘American Horror Story’, to ‘Pose’. He also writes the music for Sam Esmail’s brilliant ‘Mr. Robot’ which returns for the fourth and final season this week.

‘The Politician’, which stars Gwyneth Paltrow, Jessica Lange and Ben Platt, follows Payton Hobart, a wealthy student from Santa Barbara, who has dreamed of becoming president of the United States since the age of 7 but must first navigate the most treacherous political landscape of all: Saint Sebastian High School.

Aside from ‘The Politician’, Mac scores returning Golden Globe-winning suspense-thriller ‘Mr. Robot’, starring Christian Slater and Rami Malek, for which he won an Emmy in 2016. He also works on ‘American Horror Story’, for which he received his first Emmy nomination on his score on ‘American Horror Story: Freak Show’, along with 80s NYC ball scene drama, ‘Pose’, and procedural drama ‘9-1-1’ which he co-composes with Todd Haberman.

In 2017, he received two Emmy nominations for his main title and score in Ryan Murphy’s hit series, ‘Feud: Bette and Joan’, starring Jessica Lange and Susan Sarandon. The same year, Quayle received his second consecutive World Soundtrack Award nomination for his work on ‘Feud: Bette and Joan’, ‘Mr. Robot’ and ‘Scream Queens’, starring Emma Roberts and Jamie Lee Curtis. His other past credits include ‘The Assassination of Gianni Versace: American Crime Story’, starring Penelope Cruz, Edgar Ramirez, Ricky Martin and Darren Criss, and the Emmy-winning ‘The People v. O.J. Simpson: American Crime Story’, starring John Travolta, Sarah Paulson and Cuba Gooding Jr.
