“[Moonstruck] represents a part of our culture that doesn’t always get the spotlight.” – Dom Nero

Today I interviewed Dom Nero.

Dom Nero is a staff video editor at Esquire Magazine, where he also writes about film, television, and video games. He’s the co-host of Eye of the Duck, a podcast about movies and the scenes that make them special.

In this episode we speak about: being Italian American beyond the Godfather, specifically:

  • the legacy of Italian American anti-fascism,

  • what Sebastian Maniscalco

  •  means for the community,

  • where the racist bent in the community comes from

  • why Moonstruck should be the new touchstone movie for Italian Americans.
