PODCASTS OF THE DAY: Elvis Mitchell interviews Steve McQueen and John Ridley!
Both interviews are only about 15minutes, but great listens.
Listen to them here.
Well after my last post about seeking a replacement podcast, I found a couple interesting ones.
One has nothing to do with film, it’s a podcast that replays Old time Radio episodes. Anyone who has followed this blog knows I’m a huge fan of Old time Radio, so digging this podcast. it’s called RELIC RADIO.
They have a variety of podcast feeds, for a bunch of different genres, but so far I’m a bit stuck on the horror feed. There’s very little better than listening to classic horror from the golden days of radio. You can either download the shows or subscribe to the podcast RSS feed (which is the easier method).
You can find the site here. Check it out, I think you’ll like.
The next is a real discovery, and for a pretty massive film fan like myself (I buy DVDs as much for the director’s commentary as the film. In some cases more for the director’s commentary, so if that doesn’t scream massive film fan, nothing does. :)) a real gem.
I’m speaking of a show called THE TREAMENT, a half hour interview radio show brilliantly hosted by Elvis Mitchell (is that a great name or what?), that posts their shows, as podcasts, for a limited time on their website. The highest praise I can give this show is… I learned about it 2 days ago, and have listened to all twelve available episodes.
THE TREATMENT is something that interview shows very seldom are, it is smart, and it is humanastic, and it is engrossing, and it’s about communicating rather than simply questioning. It’s the kind of conversation, and insite you get when the person asking the questions is really informed about the medium, and really cares about the answers.
Elvis Mitchell, quickly defining himself, for me, as the best interviewer currently working in the medium of film. It is a must listen.
And it has a couple early contenders for the most interesting interviews of 2011, his interview with Alex Gibney being at the top of that list, as in a brief 30 minutes it touches on staggering questions that sooner or later… will touch us all. And his interview with Alejandro Gonzalex Inarritu is just a great insight into one of the best directors currently working.

Well that’s all for this posting. More soon.
