Scarjo A Go-Go is the podcast where we chronicle and dissect the films of Scarlett Johansson one-by-one in chronological order, learning everything there is to know about her career and her craft as she grows from tiny nugget to A-list actor. It is presented with respect, humour, and academic rigor. And we only ever refer to her by the reductive "Scarjo" in the title/theme song, because it rhymes. Ms. Johansson, we salute you!

Don't Need to be a ScarJo Fan to Enjoy

Like most cinephiles I've see Scarlett grace my screen more than a few times but I hadn't really paid her that much attention until she became the Black Widow. Luke Milton takes us on a scholarly tour through the entirety of this talented actresses' career, and through this we come to learn about the relationship between director and actor, what an actor brings to a role and what they're cast for. As well as a feminist analysis of the roles women are cast in, which is especially apparent over Scarlett's long career. You'll not only gain a new respect for Scarlett but gain a greater understanding of film making in general.

A podcast that dares to balance insightful and analytical discussion with host Luke Milton's insuppressible charm. Let this show under your skin - it's a scoop! (Unless you're just not that into... Her...)
