Post Podcasts worth a listen
Podcasts....anyone subscribe to them? Anyone have any recommendations on podcasts either film related or otherwise?

The only podcast I subscribe to is How Stuff Works from the website howstuffworks.com and stuffyoushouldknow.org. They have a huge back catalog ranging from topics such as zombies, car engines, the Hells Angels, and etc. Pretty much anything you can think of. So check it out.

In the words of the now defunct Evenflow8112 (and maybe someone from Casablanca)... here are the usual suspects:

This American Life -- Tragedy, comedy and tragi-comedy from WBEZ in Chicago. Radio documentaries about how people get by in America. Some of the stories are serious philosophical inquiries and some of the stories are about indie bands touring public libraries. It's my favorite radio show and now, in podcast form, it can be yours as well. I recommend PLAN B for the introductory listen.

Radiolab -- Recommended by someone to me on this very forum! The show is edited in a spastic, often frustrating manner but between all the blips, echoes, and whirring tape noise you get PURE SCIENCE. The LAUGHTER episode is fairly amazing -- it looks at why people laugh and then moves into the very motivations for any action at all. Unconscious? Conscious? A mix? It's entertaining (and, as said before, a fairly frustrating) and good for a twice-monthly run.

KEXP Music That Matters -- Out of my beloved Seattle comes an indispensible hour of music from The Morning Show. World music, rock, operatic rock... it all comes together for an hour on your computer.

There are more but I like to create a little suspense before you totally lose interest.

Good question... I haven't the slightest idea. For a while he was having problems logging into the site. Maybe those problems persisted. Maybe my form of tough love pushed him away from us... forever.

Filmspotting is great and I'd recommend it to any film fan. I think I posted a thread about here awhile back.

5 Live is good too but I never listen to the podcast. From time to time I catch it on Sirius. Even if I can't follow the leagues I like that this show isn't EPL centric and that people call in and talk about clubs from all divisions (some clubs I haven't even heard of).

I don't have any pod to cast to, but I do listen to the BBC World Service while driving. Their arts programme, The Strand, is quite good. The "best of The Strand" is available in podcast form as Global Arts and Entertainment.

From the site: Global Arts and Entertainment is the weekly compilation of the best of The Strand. The Strand is the home of arts and entertainment on the BBC World Service, presented by Harriett Gilbert and Mark Coles. The Strand covers the most exciting and interesting music, books, films, architecture, dance, cultural events and big name interviews from all corners of the globe.

I checked this one out today and immediately became a fan. It was episode #292 on Fish Tank, Ninotchka and Teen Rebels. Very clever duo, the hosts. Their insights along with the laid-back "let's see where this conversation takes us" attitude is just about perfect -- far from the pandering I would have (unreasonably) expected. Great recommendation!

Some months back I checked out the Filmspotting forum and found myself overwhelmed with the activity on it -- lists, threads counting to ten-thousand, and millions of other ways in. Stymied by the choices I ended up taking a hike before logging even one post. Always amazed to find how much I really don't know about movies.

I love Elvis Mitchell's The Treatment as well--dare I say it's far more indespensible than anything he did during his tenure for The New York Times. And on a completely different note, I love The Adam Carolla Podcast as well -- it's unhinged, vintage Carolla, which may be a great thing or a bad thing depending on your opinion of the host.

I must concede, however, my post in this thread is a bit selfish. My friend and I just started up a movies podcast, The BucketCast, yesterday. You can find it on iTunes (preferably!) or at my website (link). In the first episode, we review Cop Out, The Crazies, and Black Dynamite. We also discuss AMC Theatres' threatening to boycott Alice in Wonderland and our disdain for the low exhibition standards of a local chain. Look for it every week!

OK, shameless plug over and I hope it wasn't out of line -- but I think it's something that folks on this forum would enjoy. Let me know!

That's not shameless at all. I'll look into it. Thanks for the suggestions guys and keep 'em coming.

The AV Club does 2 that I like:

Every Friday they do AV Talk http://www.avclub.com/features/av-talk/) in which their film critics hash out the major new release(s) of the week, and also on Friday they have "Hatecast" (http://www.avclub.com/features/hatecast/) in which this snarky woman with a hot voice rants about what's particularly loathe-worthy this week

I'll second Filmspotting and This American Life.

Ones I also listen to:

Nerdist (Chris Hardwick, Jonah Ray, and Matt Myra talk with celebrities and amongst themselves about nerdy things, comedy, and other fun things)

Comedy Death-Ray Radio (Scott Aukerman hosts a radio show with a few funny songs, comedians talking and playing improv games, and playing characters)

The BS Report (Bill Simmons "The Sports Guy" and normally a guest talk about sports and pop culture)

The Moth (Weekly presentation of 5-20 minute stories without notes/props/music about a multitude of topics)

WTF with Marc Maron (Comedian Marc Maron talks to other comedians/personalities but normally about personal issues and process. Fascinating look inside comedy/hollywood)

Doug Loves Movies (Doug Benson "Super High Me" and three panelists talk about movies and play the Leonard Maltin game. (We should play that here but I have an Android phone so I can't download the app and don't have the book))

Sklarbro Country (The Sklar Brothers from Cheap Seats talk about recent sports stories, have a guest and then have a "sports figure" normally voiced by Chris Cox like Tiger Woods, Jerry Jones, etc.)
