Some guy who likes futurism ,

Conversations I wish I had

It’s a real pleasure to listen to Norm and his guests dive into a movie , what works and why, the context of the filmmaker’s work. Just as much excitement and forethought is applied to 80’s action movie or a decent art house film. Not too pretentious, but never shallow. Love love love this podcast.

For people who really love movies

This is a podcast by, with, and for people who love movies. All kinds (the people and the movies)! Norm Wilner, the host, is a film critic, and his guests are folks who work in the film/entertainment business - in other words, these are always people who have spent a lot of time thinking about and working on movies, probably even making them their life's work. The conversations are in-depth appreciations, sometimes somber, sometimes funny, sometimes both. For someone who truly loves film, this podcast is like getting to hang out with "your people."

Universal Appeal

This is one of the most articulate and erudite podcasts I listen to. I am from Texas so I thought the Canada catalyst behind this would make this a bit inaccessible, but this is simply not the case. The discussions ave universal appeal and accessibility. Joe Bob says Check it out.
