I know we still have Waypoints, but sometimes it can be nice to have a podcast that is reliably focused on movies/TV, or novels, or music, or any other media topic!
I’m putting this topic in the workshop because the podcast I have to offer is one that I helped to produce. It’s called BlockbustHers, and it is a film discussion podcast hosted by two gal pals who love movies and criticism. All of the movies are directed by folks who, as far as our research suggests, use she/her pronouns or identify as women.
We’ve been on hiatus for a few years now, but we are planning a comeback with season two this year so I thought I would offer up season one for anyone really longing for some loosely structured critique of random movies.
Ep 02 Mira Nair- Monsoon Wedding (2001) contains discussion of the non-consensual sexual acts alluded to in that film, but most of that conversation was excerpted to a separate file (Ep 2.5)
Ep 05 Jennifer Kent- The Babadook (2014) contains discussion of death and grief and depression and violent children
Also: The hosts often drink wine during recording and may talk about that
