Fun hosts, fun premise.

I began listening because I think the hosts are enjoyable people with interesting and informed perspectives, but I've also found this podcast to be genuinely useful as I've always avoided what actually makes up the Top 250 bro-list (from what I understand none are directed by women). This gives me a chance to analyze some of the gems that are buried within and build a deeper understanding of film history. And it's simply a fun premise.

One of the few good film podcasts

This is the spiritual successor to Reloading the Canon, itself the spiritual successor to 30 Below. However, while both previous podcasts covered movies outside of the world of well-loved films, Middlebrow Madness is a sprawling odyssey through the top 250 IMDb movies. It’s a delight to hear Michelle and Derek goof their way through some genuinely interesting and novel criticism of these extremely well-trodden topics
