An Amazing Resource

This is a stellar podcast about my favorite film composer. Yavar, Clark, David and (from earlier episodes) Jens are excellent hosts—they’re clearly knowledgeable as well as hardcore Goldsmith fans themselves. As of this writing, the Odyssey podcast is only up to 1960-61, but this deep, chronological dive into Goldsmith’s canon is already an incredible resource for fans and for students of film music. I look forward to future episodes.

Thorough to the ninth degree

This is a thorough look (listen?) at the oeuvre of film composer Jerry Goldsmith, though he also wrote television, radio and a couple of concert works. I say thorough, though 'exhaustive' might be a more appropriate description. Working through Goldsmith's output from his earliest days chronologically, interspersed with timely and fitting interviews from folks who knew/worked/researched Goldsmith, it's always entertaining thanks to its regular three hosts. Highly recommended if you're a Goldsmith fan; and if you're not, my God, what the hell is wrong with you? (NB: twice at least the hosts refer to Franz Waxman's '50s score for Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde. That score and film are from 1941 with Spencer Tracy.)

Well Reseacrched and Very Entertaining! Goldsmith's Music Lives On!

A great podcast and one with a definitive, dry sense of humor, just like the maestro himself! Even little touches, like doing a recap while using music from "SOAP" is just wonderful. I don't subscribe to many podcasts, but a score-by-score "odyssey" of Goldsmith's career is one I am ready to sign up for. Listen to the "Odyssey Interviews" and you will hear several instances where the people being interviewed comment and compliment the hosts for how well prepared they are. It's a very true observation and the team behind this podcast are true Goldsmith scholars. I am a four-time Emmy award winning professional film critic *and* a life-long fan of film music - especially Jerry Goldmith - so I know what I am talking about. Check it out. Give it a try. And be prepared to be carried away by the amazing music of Jerry Goldsmith. A great podcast. A privledge. A gift. Just... thank you.
