July’s FAVORITE podcasts Part 1 of 2!
B MOVIE CAST- A great 2+ hours of B-movie celebration. A long running and well enjoyed favorite, that I have praised for years, that I look forward to every week. Consistently one of the best!
COMIC GEEK SPEAK - One of the earliest podcasts and still one of the most popular and enjoyable, this one is a bunch of friends letting you in on their love of all things comics. With closing in on 1500 episodes, this show has seen many changes and many moments memorable and heartfelt. Dedicated to Jamie D, this show will always be one of the best.
FILM SPOTTING - One of the newer movie podcasts I’m trying, after the hiatus of a couple other movie podcasts.
FILM SPOTTING SUV – For those of us who have cut the cable bill and have embraced all things streaming this is an informative listen, keeping you abreast of the latest movies and shows to watch… courtesy of streaming.
HORROR ETC - Another long running show, this Canadian horror movie podcast is up there with B MOVIE CAST as being one of the best, while still being very unique. Always a highly recommended listen.
SIDEBAR – A trio of impressively versed art lovers, helm this excellent process show, with interviews and commentaries of some of the most acclaimed cartoonists, pencilers, painters, etc. A must have addition to anyone’s podcast rotation!
PODCAST OF THE DAY : FILM SPOTTING #496
This podcast has thoughts on ONLY LOVERS LEFT ALIVE, GRAND BUDAPEST, etc.
For me being a genre fan, and admittedly having only seen a few films so far this year, my most enjoyable theatrical film viewing of 2014 so far has been CAPTAIN AMERICA : WINTER SOLDIER.
11 O’CLOCK COMICS #320 - Guest host James Gonzales brings the knowledge in this informative and fun disection of everything from comics to rap to Elvis to parenting. I found his breakdown on his approach to parenting… pretty darn impressive.
Just a great revolving discussion with him and the regulars of Vince, David and Jason; to accompany you through your day.
“And it’s a hard pill, where you’re no longer important to marketers, no one wants your attention anymore… it’s a loss of virility to a degree and I think they are lashing out against that, the [loss of] the time when they were iimportant to comics. And using it [that lashing out] in a very transparent way to try to sell their comics.” Discussing Chuck Dixon and Paul Rivoche’s article in Wall Street Journal
PODCAST OF THE DAY : House To Astonish 120 – Nice discussion of comic and movie news. A Black actor playing one of the Fantastic Four in the upcoming movie? FLAME-ON! :).
Possibly not the choice that would have come to me, but the actor, script, and director will determine if its a great, inspired idea, or a mediocre one. I give them the benefit of the doubt. Idris Elba in Thor was a great decision, as was Samuel Jackson as Nick Fury, so this could be a great idea too.
I’m listening to this podcast the Daily Spill right now, it is hilarious and informative. Listen now here!
