Four years ago, HFPA Austrian member, Elisabeth Sereda, sat down with Golden Globe and Cecil B. DeMille award winner Steven Spielberg for our first podcast in celebration of our 75th anniversary. Last month, Spielberg celebrated his own 75 th birthday and that felt like a great time to rewind and revisit this fascinating 2018 conversation from the man behind work including: Raiders of the Lost Ark (1981); E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial (1982); The Color Purple (1985); Jurassic Park (1993); Lincoln (2012) and The Post (2017). Listen in as Spielberg takes us through his life and career from his youth, when he first realized he wanted to be a director, to reveal how a tour at Universal Studios changed his path, why Jaws (1975) almost ruined his career, which movies challenged him most and why history is so important to him.
