Just The Pods! Volume Two

More podcasting listening goodness for your ears! Some from this week and some a little older!
INSIDE JAWS - Becoming Spielberg & Breaking in
Produced by Wondery - from whence came shows like Hollywood and Crime - comes this series on Spielberg and the making of JAWS. Two Episodes are live right now: "Becoming Spielberg" and "Breaking In". Both are good and jump all over the map in time to present some interesting back stories on Spielberg and the things that inspired the JAWS story.

THE SECRET HISTORY OF HOLLYWOOD - Shadows: The Lost Child
This is one of my very favorite podcasts out there and one of my favorite series that he’s done so far (and he’s made groups of episodes on Hitchcock and the Universal Monsters films as well). This particular round though is quite excellent and tells the tale behind Val Lewton’s THE CURSE OF THE CAT PEOPLE - which turns out to be the most personal film he ever made. This nearly three hour episode serves as a delightful supplement to the newly released Blu-ray of the film - just out from Scream Factory.

MUSICAL NOTATION - THE ROYAL TENENBAUMS Soundtrack
Another of my personal favorite shows and one I usually make sure to listen to the week it comes out. Host West Anthony is a music and film lover of the highest order and his shows always offer some lovely tidbits about the movie music his is excerpting each week. On this go round, he talks about the songs and artists behind one of Wes Anderson's best films AND soundtracks - THE ROYAL TENENBAUMS. This episode is quite timely with the release of ISLE OF DOGS on VOD this week.

Last week's show was also good and featured West highlighting some music from three films by David Lynch (ERASERHEAD, THE ELEPHANT MAN and DUNE):

SHOUT TAKES - Keith Carradine
The SHOUT TAKES podcast offers up longer versions of interviews they've used for their Blu-ray releases and they are almost always interesting. This latest episode runs more than an hour and has veteran actor Keith Carradine talking about his 40 plus year career - working with director Alan Rudolph and others. Highly enjoyable!

THE TREATMENT - Brad Bird
Elvis Mitchell talks to director Brad Bird about his new film INCREDIBLES 2, but lots of other things come up too - like THE PLAGUE DOGS (which Bird was an animator on) and Howard Hawks among others.

FTHIS MOVIE! - SCREWBALLS/SCREWBALLS II
Patrick Bromley and Stephanie Crawford are two of my favorite podcasters/movie talkers (both have been kind enough to guest on my show Just the Discs). Listening to the two of them talk movies is one my favorite things and so even when they are talking about a pair of less than spectacular Canadian sexploitation movies, it is still a blast. Also, I love when they speak about things they've been watching which covers nearly the first forty minutes of this episode:

Also recommended is the episode they did on Empire Pictures from a few weeks back:
