Illuminating.

This is a great podcast which focuses on the more academia nature of film studies yet manages to strike a skilled balance in its content between being highly informative and yet easily accessible. I’m nearly always left digging deeper into the subjects addressed and often purchase the books by the authors they interview.

The essential film podcast

The Cinephiliacs has become one of the staples of my listening. Peter Labuza’s format - in which he discusses movie moments on his mind, then asks about his guest’s formative moviegoing experiences, then jumps ahead to discuss a film of their choice, has the personal quality of a shrink’s couch, combined with academic rigour and romantic passion. Some guests are more sophisticated in their knowledge and intelligence than others, but when they’re good - Miriam Bale, Kim Morgan, Mark Harris, to name just a few of the most engaging - they’re very good indeed. The points of reference are so dense and varied that you can listen to episodes of the podcast multiple times, first for the simple pleasure, then to mine a research list. And The Cinephiliacs really is just plain pleasurable in its purr and its flow, from the voices of the conversationalists to the way the segments are demarcated by graciously introduced snippets of music and dialogue, and a dreamy score by (Christian rock band!) Northbound Orchestra.

In a word, essential.
