There’s simply none better. Best host, best guests, best co-hosts. The care and research that Mike White puts in to each episode is mind- boggling. I’ve heard tell that he’s even made certain co-hosts read an 800-page book!
The best podcast on movies and culture
Bar none THE best podcast about film (and best show about film and culture). Mike White and his guests’ discussions of the film are engaging, illuminating and make you want to watch the movie they are focusing upon whether it’s a familiar favorite or something new. Great range of interviews with filmmakers. A treat for film fans and a great resource for anyone interested in film and visual culture.
One of the best movie podcasts out there
This show is incredibly well produced from start to finish. It is well researched with background information and thoughtful insights on all sorts of films. I find I appreciate something differently when I understand it more. I come away from the episode appreciating the film more than I did at the start.
