SCARECROW RADIO is the official podcast of SCARECROW VIDEO, the world’s largest video library, located in Seattle, Washington. Each episode our hosts Ben and Darcy speak with a diverse panel of guests about a wide variety of films and film adjacent topics. You don’t want to miss out on a podcast that we can only hope someone will someday describe as, “at least one thumb up!”

Episode 28: REALITY TV and EARLY DVDs
On today’s show, Darcy and I discuss the merits of the many forms of reality TV over the past two decades, and how reality programming can be as culturally significant as art house cinema. Later on, we chat about the five free DVD promotion of the late 90s and some of the first discs we bought back in the day.

On this episode of Scarecrow Radio we have TraeAnna Holiday from Converge Media here in Seattle, WA. Trae is here to talk to us about this month’s Represent List, curated by Converge Media for Scarecrow for the month of July.

The Suspense Ss Killing Us:
Such relevant discussion about the modernization of historical art and the disservice that can be to ourselves, and history itself. I am a HUGE fan of Jane Austen, and I agree that to pen a movie about her without pandering to the same common misbelief and heteronormative standards that bound her in life. GREAT SHOW. Thank you.
I miss talking with friends in a theatre lobby after watching a movie!! This podcast is helping me fill that void.
Geeky & Delightful
I love this podcast! The banter, special guests, and topics are all pitch-perfect. Plus every episode gives me like 5 movie recommendations. Viva Physical Media!
