Bi-weekly Treat

This is my first go-to podcast each week. I feel like I’m hanging out with buddies who give me great movie, music, and book recommendations and make me laugh along the way (especially Glen...I have written down Glen quotes). Thanks for this balm in a stressful world.

PARticularly

I love this show and listen to every episode. The one thing that drives me crazy about it though, is Linda’s pronunciation of the word “particularly.” She says it at least once in most episodes, and completely leaves out the “R” pronouncing it pa-ticularly. I will continue to listen to this podcast, but please keep this in mind when recording new episodes for my own sanity!

Hard to Listen To

As a regular NPR listener and a film major, I really wanted to enjoy this show but after a few months I find their film reviews to be really haughty and pretentious.

They opine themes by simply saying “it lands flat,” or “it just doesn’t work” without acknowledging the purely subjective nature of their own criticisms. They often ignore the technical and the artistic aspects and film and tv and base their reviews solely on their own internal emotional reaction. While this is fine enough in a discussion format, they hold their opinions to be a little too exalted and that’s just hard for me to listen to.
