Perfect podcast for film fans

I discovered this podcast via Who Shot Ya! podcast; where April Wolfe, host of this show, was a regular contributor. April has a relaxed conversational interview style and always has interesting filmmakers, some I was not previously aware of, as guests; which makes for an enjoyable listen. The premise is for a guest to discuss their favourite genre film and connect it to their own work. I've been inspired to seek out featured filmmakers and films off the back of some of the discussions and it's been valuable to hear alternative perspectives on films I'm already a fan of. I'm hooked!

Cool women discuss cool films

Cult films are discussed by host April Wolfe and a host of amazing female filmmakers. Really fun and insightful. Always entertaining.

Excellent Podcast

I listen to a number of genre film podcasts, mostly with male presenters (which I enjoy) but it was really refreshing to find one that dealt with the female perspective. April is a superb interviewer, I love the way she ties in the guests film choice with their own work.
