Podcasts for Classic Film Fans: February Round-up

As you can see from my selection, I had a varied month of podcast listening. Stay tuned next month for the return of my own podcast. I’ve got some fun guests lined up this season! All episode titles link to the shows:
Book vs Movie 
January 27, 2022 

Book vs Movie co-hosts The Margos have started adding other kinds of sources to their podcast, including short stories and in this case, a stage play so they can produce a weekly show. I’ve always been iffy on the movie, Humphrey Bogart was so poorly cast, and I was curious to hear how the play compared. It sounds like a completely different story, with a more worldly and educated Sabrina and stronger, more involved female characters. Now I’m dying to see a stage production of this story.

The Dana Gould Hour 
February 1, 2022 

There’s a lot going on in this entertaining episode: an interview with Jonah Ray (MST3K reboot) which references Tyrone Power, a brief history of publicity king William Castle, and an interesting bit about Alfred Hitchcock, the process of making Psycho (1960), and his search for great material.

The Movies That Made Me 
January 25, 2022 

I love Guillermo del Toro as much for his passion for movies as his filmmaking. It’s pure enjoyment to hear him talk about the films he loves and the many things that make movies great in this wide-ranging conversation. There have got to be many film fans who got into the classics because of his adoration of all kinds of cinema. 

February 3, 2022 

I had high hopes for this art house horror show because co-host (and talented DVD/Blu-ray art designer) Drusilla Adeline is one of my favorite Twitter follows. So far it is promising. The conversation is smart, totally lacking in snobbishness, and infused with some playful elements that made it a little different than your typical movie talk show.
