My friend J.C. and I have started a monthly podcast based on our love of sweaters and enjoyment of books, movies, and other topics that fall under the pop culture umbrella. It’s a laid back chat about where our brains have been over the past month and you’re invited to come along for the ride!
In case you haven’t figured it out already, I’m the short one in the photo above. J.C. is the wizardly-looking fella.
July 23rd – What makes a blockbuster? What are some of the biggest summer films of the past? What movie to we subtly spoil without context? All these questioned will be answered and more on this month’s episode of….. Plot Threads!
June 29th – Today is the day we share the spoils of war as we declare war on spoilers. Well we really just talk about what makes a spoiler and how we all feel about them but I wanted to use the phrase “spoils of war.”
May 22nd – We tackle cult classics, regular classics, and the unsung heroes of the movie world. Not only that but our Love It or Leave It segment is back by popular demand! Take a listen below and let us know what your favourite cult classic is.
April 23rd – This month we’re talking about how the internet has changed the way we consume media. From Spielberg’s comments about Netflix, to our favourite pieces of web based media. We even debut our newest segment for rating Joseph Gordon-Levitt films. This is an episode not to be missed!
March 19th – In episode four we chat about a bunch of upcoming movies, what we thought about Black Panther, and promise to get back to reading in time for the next episode.
March 12th – Episode three is the wrap up of our Oscar podcast. Who won? Who lost? Who had the nicest sweater? tune in to find out!
February 20th – Episode two is titled ” The Phantom Threads” where we dish the dirt on our Oscar picks. Be sure to send us your picks to our email for your chance to win 20 Cineplex bucks! Here’s a link to the ballot we used to make our picks.
January 22nd – Our first episode is called “A New Trope,” and you can listen to the sultry sounds of our voices below. I’m now aware that Doug Jones isn’t in Star Wars, and is actually in the new Star Trek series. Mixing up these two fandoms likely merits a death sentence, but I adore both of them so I’m giving myself a pass.
