Great insight on classic films

Kristen is very knowledgeable on all things classic cinema related and delivers her episodes in an interesting and fun manner. She gives info at a good pace - not too fast, not too slow and her audio is easy to listen to. Two thumbs up!

Film Roast Podcast ,

Old Hollywood Is Fascinating!

That snazzy music in the beginning of Ticklish Business will set the tone for this fascinating pod uncovering and chatting about films from the golden days of cinema. Hear about Marilyn Monroe, Joan Crawford, Bette Davis, and more of your favorite flicks! Kristen covers each film well, explaining the plot of the films and discussing what was actually happening off screen. It's a great way to learn about older Hollywood stars!
