CinemaSpiel Podcast Episode One – Victoria Film Festival, Philip Seymour Hoffman

CInemaSpiel podcast

So, I like radio. I worked in it for a couple of years but not very long. Not that I didn’t love the medium, I just didn’t like not eating and barely paying rent. You know, those little things. But I still think audio is one of the most effective ways to connect and communicate with and to others. Oh, and I like movies.

So when eOne Films representative Jason Whyte and movie review writer Kyle Wells approached me to be a part of a movie discussion podcast, what was I going to say? No? Fat chance. We’re still in the process of launching a host website and to get it on iTunes but we wanted to get the ball rolling.

Here’s our first show. I hope you enjoy it and please let me know what you didn’t and did like. We’re a work in progress.
