My new favorite!

This is one of the most thoughtful podcasts I've ever heard. It's constantly obvious that Sean never says ANYTHING without thinking about it first — which makes it really easy to become engrossed. I've showed this podcast to four friends already and they all love it too!

a diamond of the first water

Stumbled upon Sean's writing for the Baltimore City Paper, specifically his brilliant Christmas-Not-Christmas listicle of 2016. It took me about ten seconds to discern the alternative sensibility at work behind those sparkling write-ups. Located his Hundreds of Dead Bodies series after some light sleuthing, and now I'm a fan for life (or at least until he stops podcasting). Sean is an extraordinary cinephile whose ardor for neglected genre fare is a joyous intoxicant. His defense of The Mask of Dimitrios was so powerful it probably caused an existential fissure to open somewhere in the universe. To misquote the great Sydney Greenstreet, I'm a man who likes listening to a man who likes to talk. Keep up the incredible work, mate.

¯\_(ツ)_/¯

Sean is engaging and intelligent, but most importantly (not important at all) he hates 99% of the same things I hate. Five stars.
