Top podcast and a family favourite

The Soundtrack Show has become my family’s favourite podcast, hands down. David W. Collins is such a great host and should be considered an authority on the genre of film scores. His analysis is always engaging and never dives too far down the musical theory rabbit hole so concepts are accessible and enjoyable for all. Highly recommend!!

Love it

I really enjoy the Musical Movie Commentaries!

I’ve always Loved movie soundtracks and have my own little collection. I’m happy with the first few episodes! Looking forward to more! I also look forward to him composers specifically put their own thumbprint on the scores!
