I’ll be appearing on “Uncle Tee’s Cool Pool Party,” a podcast at 8 p.m. EDST Monday on STLR Media in Sarasota. This is the same time slot as “The Twysted Tyrants Show” with Johnny Christ BayBay that I was on about a month ago, but Johnny is gone and it’s a new show. Host Cat Welch has promised me we’ll be able to talk about other things than my love affair with a dolphin, things like my family’s involvement with the crazy pseudo-science of the late Dr. Wilhelm Reich, the 20 years I spent practicing Wicca, the decade I spent reporting on the Navajos and Zunis, or my attempts to understand the elusive nature of the UFO, starting when I was a child.

The short film “Dolphin Lover,” about Malcolm J. Brenner’s relationship with Dolly the dolphin, will play at the prestigious 2015 Los Angeles Film Festival.

Short interview with Malcolm J. Brenner by Kat Dow of unRavel.us, a web site of the Sarasota Herald-Tribune newspaper. Being where Brenner lived during the time, the early 1970’s, Sarasota is “ground zero” for the “Wet Goddess” story. “Dolphin Lover” screened twice at the recent 2015 Sarasota Film Festival. The film makes use of archival footage of Floridaland, the small theme park with a dolphin show in Nokomis which provided the setting for the book. The location is today occupied by a housing development.
Malcolm J. Brenner will be appearing at a showing of Dolphin Lover at the Sarasota Film Festival, 9:45 p.m. Sunday, April 12. The film will be shown as part of a package of short films being screened at the Hollywood Cinema in theater T12. Director Kareem Tabsch will also be there. Dolphin Lover will repeat as part of the same package on Thursday, April 16 at 10 p.m. in theater T10 with producer Joey Daoud in attendance.
