One of Australia’s top film interviewers

Superb knowledge of all things film

Jason really knows his craft and this is evident in every episode of The Film Show. It’s an absolute pleasure to listen to insightful, deep and well researched conversations which make film makers think and reflect on their work, and you can hear the mutual respect Jason and his interviewees have for eachother. Questions are always thought provoking and drill right into the heart of the craft and Jason nails it every week with many actors, producers and directors reflecting that no one has ever asked them questions that cut to the core of what they are trying to communicate. He just gets it.
I have discovered so much great film and tv through listening to his interviews.
Thanks! Love the show

Great podcast on films in all mediums

Definitely my favourite podcast on film. Love the variety of interviewees and the analysis, even if I disagree with perspective. Awesome because focuses on Oz films too. Thanks
