Now I know who starred in Escape From Witch Mountain
I was looking forward to a minute by minute look at one of my all time favorite movies. Unfortunately, this podcast didn’t hit the spot. I only listened to the first three episodes, and the first two were the podcaster and his sisters talking about their experience with Halloween. These episodes didn’t sound great, and I know the producer did a series of remixes to make the audio better. The problem wasn’t so much the audio quality, but the fact that they didn’t really have a structure to their conversation and they were talking over each other. During the second episode, they argued for what felt like 10 minutes about who starred in Escape From Witch Mountain. So at least I know the answer to that nagging question. After these first two, it’s just the solo podcaster doing his minute by minute run through of the movie. Which would have been an improvement, but it sounds like he is whispering and talking fast, so it is hard to understand what he is saying sometimes.
Better as you go
I have never listened to a minute by minute podcast. So perhaps this will set kind of a standard for me. I think this host is terrific.
It has a little slow of a start but not all podcasts come out of the gate a big exciting winner. I have truly enjoyed listening so far. Would like the opportunity to speak with the host someday about my love for the film. Best of luck!
It may get better, but I’ll never know...
The first podcasts consist of the host talking with his siblings about growing up watching the movie.
I can’t tell if the host is purposely whispering for “scary” effect, but gets annoying and hard to hear. Deep breath intakes throughout take you out of the podcast and make you worry the host will make it without his inhaler.
With other by the minute podcasts out there as a template, you would think this podcast would be more like them. Shame such a great movie gets the bad amateur podcast to honor it...much like the movie series, I hope this gets a reboot..
