STEAL THIS SHOW brings you stories from the frontier of the information revolution. From pirates and renegade technologists to media radicals and DIY creators, we connect with people using technology to put power back where it belongs — in the hands of the people!

Our Patreon campaign helps keep the show free and independent. If you enjoy this episode, get involved! Our patrons get access to an exclusive Slack channel, uncut interviews, and more.


In this first episode of the new season, we meet the irrepressible Lloyd Kaufman, co-founder of Troma Entertainment and director of The Toxic Avenger. Find out why Lloyd loves pirates – except state-sponsored ones; why vertical integration, media consolidation and the end of Net Neutrality would kill Troma; and why Lloyd is skeptical that crowdfunding systems like Patreon have a role in crowdfunding independent movies.

Check out Lloyd’s movies on his YouTube channel!

Lloyd Kaufman is an American film director, producer, screenwriter, and actor. With producer Michael Herz, he is the co-founder of the Troma Entertainment film studio, and the director of many of their feature films, including The Toxic Avenger and Tromeo and Juliet. Lloyd is also the creator of the Make Your Own Damn Movie! series. Having completed Make Your Own Damn Movie!, Direct Your Own Damn Movie! and Produce Your Own Damn Movie!, he is now working on Sell Your Own Damn Movie!.

    Jamie, jamie, jamie. Every guest on your show gets reminded that you did ‘steal this film’.

      It’s totally true! But STEAL THIS FILM provided such a large wad of experiences, I’m still parsing them 🙂 Had I been abducted by aliens ten years ago, no doubt I’d still be talking about that – and we’d have another show entirely. My only hope is that enough of these experience translate into interesting points of view that make it worth, more or less, listening…
