The last time Marco Beltrami talked with Soundcheck, the fate of humanity rested in the balance. We were all facing the zombie apocalypse. (Again.) But inspired perhaps by Marco’s dramatic soundtrack, the world was saved in the movie World War Z, so that left the composer free to tackle a subject closer to home -- though further away in time.

In a conversation with Soundcheck host John Schaefer, the well-traveled composer discusses his latest music project, the new AMC TV series, Turn, about America's first spy ring.
