Sh! The Nitrateville Podcast!
As a regular visitor to the Nitrateville classic and silent film messageboard, the podcast version hosted by Michael Gebert exceeds my expectations with great stories about the movies from experienced historians, archivists and collectors. I just wish I could see more of the films they talk about, it takes a plane trip to see 70mm and 3D screenings, but at least I can be there vicariously via Nitrateville Radio.
