'Discussing “Silence” with Dr. Van Gessel'

I spoke with the literary consultant on the film "Silence" and produced this podcast episode:

A renowned scholar of Japanese literature, Van Gessel is the primary English translator for the work of Japanese author Shusaku Endo, having translated seven Endo novels so far, with his eighth on the way. Gessel served as a literary consultant on Martin Scorsese’s recent adaptation of “Silence.”
