Great Podcast for Indie Film!

I’ve been listening to Filmwax Radio for many years now. The guests are always fascinating, and Adam brings a lot to the table with his questions. I always learn a lot and I’m very thankful to have this resource, especially now as we are all hunkered down.

Friendly and insightful film discussions

LOVE this podcast. Adam (and his collaborators) conduct terrific interviews with fascinating subjects, and his love for film is evident. He knows his history, but doesn't let it overwhelm the immediacy of the conversations he has with filmmakers, actors, etc. So glad I discovered this, and proud that I've had a hand in a couple of the films he's highlighted.

Filmwax Radio puts the subject front and center

Filmwax Radio is straightforward and unpretentious. Adam Schartoff’s interviews with filmmakers and others often feel like late night after-dinner conversations among friends (new or old). This is my favorite kind of interviewing because it puts the subject of the interview, and their work, first and foremost. In too many of the interview programs I hear, including several that have long been established as national broadcasts, the interviewer too often interrupts the guest so that the interviewer's questions, analysis, clever comments, etc. overshadow and disrupt what the guest has to say. Listening to such programs, I often want to tell the host: “be quiet and let this guest finish their thought, point, etc.” Filmwax, on the other hand, gives filmmakers and others the space to follow through on their own comments, stories and very interesting tangents. Schartoff steps in when needed to move the conversation forward, sometimes humorously, but mostly he listens along with us and — in doing that — allows us to really learn something about, and from, the guests he features. I wish more radio (via airwaves, satellite or Internet) was like this.
