Thank the Stars

My new favorite podcast. I had a difficult time finding an in-depth podcast on film of modern AND retro favorites that didn’t lose my attention, but I have finally found the one. April Wolfe is an engaging and informative host who does an excellent job of asking the perfect questions to the guests and educating me along the way. I love every minute of it and hope it gets the recognition it deserves. My personal favorite episode was “Raw with Barbara Crampton”; excited for more to come!!

Best Film Podcast Going

April Wolfe is a fresh voice in film criticism (thank god) who brings incredible research, thoughtful questions and wonderful guests to her show. She has exposed me to artists I might not have known or given much thought to otherwise, and she helps contribute to the growing legitimacy of genre film analysis. I am so grateful for this show as a cis white hetero male sick of listening to cis white hetero males talk about the same ten movies over and over again.

Not a film buff? Not a problem!

Nothing makes my Fridays like putting on a fresh Switchblade Sisters! I'm not well versed in film and nine times out of ten I haven't seen the films discussed but, like April says, that never stops me from listening. More than anything else I love hearing art and womanhood discussed in a space created by artists and women, but the occasional deep dive on rubber prop monsters is good too. Extra kudos to April and Casey for the insane amount of research that goes into every episode!
