Who here enjoys a good podcast while driving to work, enjoying a cool drink on a hot Summer day or randomly spending time on the little household things of every day?
Two podcast sites in particular have kept me entertained over the past couple of years:
The Hollywood Saloon
offers insightful coverings of films, film series, filmmakers and topics about cinema in general. The hosts, Andy and John, are both well educated in the arts of filmmaking, including the technical side of things. Their conversations, while also funny at times, are mostly informative and interesting. Hugely recommended. Also, they have no less than four Bond related shows...
is fun for everyone. A panel of usually three hosts dives into film retrospectives, spending one show on each film in a series or on standalone films. Originally designed for quick recommend/non-recommend reviews of freshly released films, NPP swiftly involved into the retrospective podcast it is today. It's no exception nowadays that a full hour or more is reserved for a film discussion. Strong points include a lot of laughs, great hosts, some incredibly peculiar choices of rare films to be discussed and highly entertaining while still very informative reviews. One show per week guaranteed - sometimes even more. My favourite source of film podcasts. Couldn't leave home without my mp3 player full of those any more.
Do you know these two? Perhaps you listen to other podcasts. Let's discuss them.
