    POD OF THE YEAR (literally)

    POD OF THE YEAR (literally)

    CONTAINS A HUGE AMOUNT OF SWEARING.
    We know, we know, it's been a year, but we are nothing if not consistent rom com podcasters.
    Billy and Tess discuss the future of the romantic comedy as it moves into a new decade, and have their usual existential crises live on air (and by this we mean 'Tess does').
    Happy Holidays! And here's a link to the story we talk about at the end, and whether it could be a rom com...

    A Fine Romance

    A Fine Romance

    It's the end of the year, which can mean only one thing. Billy and Tess need to exchange gifts from under the rom com tree, make some rom com resolutions for 2019, and make us all feel better about life in general, using the power of rom com. No pressure.

    Tess and Billy's Rom Com Oscars

    Tess and Billy's Rom Com Oscars

    We're back! Did you miss us? We did. Anyway, seeing as awards season is FINALLY drawing to a close, we thought we'd dish out some of our own gongs, and give some rom coms the love, admiration and cheap statues they deserve but never got. We also pose some questions that have been noodling around in our brains since we last got together, and attempt to keep Billy's dogs from not making regular cameos, and the acoustics in his front room from drowning out our dulcet tones. Enjoy!

    The Gift Of The Holiday Rom Com!

    The Gift Of The Holiday Rom Com!

    Hello friends!
    Our 6th and final pod of the year! And what a year it has been, so we decided to give each other some presents, and some resolutions, all wrapped up under the guise of the holiday rom com.
    We also have a big old rant about the rom com being blamed for something, yet again, but we know how you love it when we do that.
    Happy Holidays from us both!

    Women (Only)

    Pod 5! Okay, we appreciate we're not the most regular podcasting team, but life is what happens while you're busy planning podcasts. Anyway, we were compelled to record one this week, because we were both feeling SO terrible about EVERYTHING, so we decided to spend a whole lovely hour talking with each other about our favourite female characters in film, and our favourite screenplays by women. Because we felt this is what the world needed right now.

You Had Me at RomCom

For awhile, it seemed like romcom lovers were few and far between. I had to grasp onto whatever I could find. But now, with a summer resurgence, this podcast emerged among my social media.
I’ve read Billy’s book and watched/read Tess’ Man Up. I feel like a bad fan that I didn’t know about this podcast sooner, but now I can’t stop recommending it to other romcom lovers. It’s definitely helping me figure out a current romcom idea I have.

An endearing, but infrequent podcast.

In their last podcast, December 2018, Tess and Billy jokingly take credit for the romcom revival, then they never podcast again. I guess their work was done here.

A new fave

I was led to this podcast by the esteemed screenwriting pod, Scriptnotes. I love You Had Us At Hello for a lot of the same reasons. As someone who is not a writer but simply a film buff, hearing folks who work on scripts for a living discuss and analyze them has enhanced my own ability to appreciate the nuance and craft behind the writing. As for the hosts, Tess Morris is exceptionally charming and British with an almost manic enthusiasm for romcoms, while Billy Mernit provides a great foil by being no less passionate about the topic but perhaps a bit more even keel and focused on the planned talking points. However, my favorite moments, much like Scriptnotes, occur when the hosts allow the conversation to drift hither and thither, like old friends just chatting. Those who appreciate rigid, lecture-like structure may be a little disappointed, but for those like me who simply want to hear knowledgeable and entertaining people discuss an interest we share with them, this podcast goes down real easy. Cheers Tess and Billy!
