Best Podcast I’ve listened to

Listening to this podcast broadened my horizons drastically and enhanced my thinking. It’s fantastic getting a philosophical education (as in learning new ways of thinking) in the context of film. Show Me the Meaning also has increased my appreciation for film and makes me seem much more intelligent when discussing TV, movies and books. Anyone who likes this podcast should check out their YouTube channel, Wisecrack.

Surprisingly Awesome

I’ll preface this with the fact that I’m a conservative girl in Kansas so going in I was nervous as I don’t think these guys hide their more liberal leanings. However, they’re the best kind of people who can discuss, debate, and dissect hot button topics without being insulting or degrading or condescending. They talk about a wide variety of movie types and genres and tropes. Ryan is totally my boy cause he just loves movies for entertainment’s sake and Matthew and Greg are my favorite guests for their comic book love and easy going comedic point of view, respectively. Austin sometimes drives me nuts cause he reminds me of my grandpa LOL too smart for his own good and a little too full of himself. But, like my grandfather, I can appreciate his intellect and enjoy hearing his (somewhat snooty) perspective. Plus social sciences are my favorite study and these guys crush it!!

Perfect balance of film theory nerd and fanboy appreciation

My favorite film podcast by a good margin. Most of the time they dissect a film’s themes, philosophy, and politics extremely well, while not being too academic or clinical; the conversation (usually) flows well.

However, Austin (a regular) tends to pulls a film towards his philosophical background/interests. This tends to congest the discussion, really halting the free flow discussion. Jared just has to awkwardly move on because his points are often esoteric (and, in my opinion, dull) for anyone to really build on. Call me bitter from my experience with fellow philosophy school cohorts, but I wish he could express theories more directly onto the film being discussed.

Outside of that, it’s the perfect balance of film theory, philosophy, and what they just liked about a movie.
