John Jeffcoat interviewed on NPR

Dave Beck speaks to Director John Jeffcoat about the orgins of OUTSOURCED. Listen to the podcast HERE.

John Jeffcoat is a Seattle writer and filmmaker. He directed and co–wrote the 2006 film "Outsourced." And "Outsourced" inspired an NBC comedy series that debuts this fall. But six years ago Jeff had no idea where his career was headed. That changed when he started to think back on a 1993 study trip he took to Nepal during his junior year in college. His experiences in Nepal changed his outlook on life and the world, and they played an important role in the creation of "Outsourced." KUOW's Dave Beck speaks with John Jeffcoat.
