I've found the track outside the Criterion Collection (Caqelight/Alive).

Harris and Eder were recorded separately in 2000. Harris dominates the track. He talks about his time as a producer and the circumstances of the movie. He gives some details about the production and the legacy of The Blob. This is quite nice, but not great. But his stories about Steve McQueen are great stuff. They’ve been in contact loosely after the movie.

Eder talks only from time to time. He points out very good things. As a historian he puts the movie into the context of its time. Eder parts are the best.

There are no gaps on the track. It is solid. 7 out of 10.
