When you podcast about something you love it shows!
As a hobbyist filmmaker with an interest in how things are made, and the people who make them, this was the show for me. I will listen to them all again!
Great analysis! I hope you cover more David Lynch films in future episodes.
My new favorite podcast!
The title says it all. This is my new favorite podcast! Funny, insightful, well-researched conversations between brilliant filmmakers and storytellers about some of my favorite movies? What’s not to love? I feel like I come away from every episode a little smarter, a little happier, and a little more inspired than I was when I first pressed play, and I’m so grateful for that! Highly recommended!
