Mike Nelson was the head writer and host of Mystery Science Theater 3000. He is now part of the online hilarious movie mocking site Rifftrax. The people at Rifftrax were very nice reaching out to me and setting up this phone interview with the man himself. Also, special thanks to Matt Conant for helping me figure out how to record a phone call via Skype.
