ZOOM is a new podcast from Focus Features for movie lovers who want to know everything. Fueled by the inquisitive mind of film critic and host Amy Nicholson (“Unspooled,” "Halloween Unmasked"), each episode uses a modern-day movie as a launch pad to discover mind-bending facts about science, technology, and history. What kind of planet might E.T. come from? Do superstar horses “act”? Which Edwardian rules of etiquette could trip up Downton Abbey’s Lord Grantham? Featuring interviews with an eclectic mix of experts and filmmakers, ZOOM explores Hollywood's uncharted questions.

Amy is fabulous
I love a deep dive on a topic, and honestly I only wish there were more episodes of Zoom. It’s always fascinating to explore a cultural phenomenon and the history behind them.
Amy Nicholson is a national treasure
I said what I said.
I love this podcast! Between this and Unspooled, Amy Nicholson has become one of my favorite film critics. I have learned so much already, and I only wish that they released more episodes!
