It was an especially illuminating month of podcast listening. Lots of great variety. All episode titles link to the show:
Teenage Golden Age
March 8, 2023
I love this teen-hosted classic film podcast. Elsie is a natural at hosting. She shares some fascinating insights about Hepburn and her place in a male-dominated industry. The show brough back great memories of discovering classics as a teen myself, though I wasn’t half as good at analyzing what I saw.
The Movies That Made Me
March 3, 2023
This is a repost of a classic episode of the podcast. Anders knows so much about movies. She tells some great stories here about some of the best filmmakers to step behind a camera. Content Warning: extensive discussion about SA in the first 24:00.
Pure Cinema Podcast

Elric and Brian never fail to dramatically expand my to watch list with each episode. I had never even heard of several of their picks in this video store-themed show. The discussion really did evoke the feeling of walking the aisles, checking out the art on this rows of VHS boxes.

The segment with Farran Nehme aka Self-Styled Siren begins at 29:00, she talks about her writing, including a piece she did about John Wayne, Sacheen Littlefeather, and a notorious moment at the Academy Awards 50 years ago. She does a good job unpacking the incident and how, as always, she carefully researched what happened to ensure she had the facts.
