Best in the game!

Chris and Timothy are so relatable, I started listening to Analog Talk when I started my analog journey. It’s been 5 years and I still get stoked to hear about new photographers and their points of view, it keeps me motivated to keep shooting film.

White Whale & Desert Island

Great interviews and an always interesting look into what white whale and desert island camera we all dream about!

Could be better

If I have to hear the hosts talk about their lives one more time…

But seriously, as someone who has listened to every ep it is annoying to hear the hosts take up so much time in the episode talking about themselves when we’ve already heard their stories sooo many times. I also wish they asked deeper questions that get more to the heart of why and how the guests make their art. We don’t need to just hear about gear they use!
