“There is a Podcast… A Certain Podcast”

Listen to the episode below:

Welcome everyone, and thank you for joining us for the Flixwise Podcast’s maiden voyage. We’re told the oceans of the internet can be rough and treacherous, but here’s hoping we don’t encounter too many rouge waves, at least not until we get our sea legs. Anyway, this metaphor’s been extended for long enough. The point is, after months of incessantly bragging to¬†friends, family, and anyone who would listen about the super cool podcast that we’re starting, the day has finally come for people to actually give it a listen.

So without further ado, Flixwise humbly submits, for your listening pleasure, Episode 1: Citizen Kane. In this episode, Lady P, Gabe Haggard, and Gary Lampert discuss the number 2 movie on the Sight and Sound Critics poll: Orson Welles’ Citizen Kane. We follow that up with a little getting to know you feature wherein we each count down our top 5 favorite movies.

Just a brief caveat: this was recorded several months ago, before we were bono-fide expert audio engineers/competent. A lot of the sound quality issues we had on this podcast will go away in future episodes… I promise.

In the meantime, give this a listen and let us know what you think. Comments and suggestions are greatly appreciated.

  1. Good dialogue and very interesting. Gives me a new way to view movies

  2. Non-artsy Film Fan Fan

    While I would not expect many of my favorites such as “Rainman” “Back to the Future” ” The Day the Earth Stood Still” and “Witness for the Prosecution” to be on this list, I cannot comprehend why “To Kill A Mockingbird”, “High Noon”, The Apartment “, “Mr. Smith Comes to Washington”, and ” It’s a Wonderful Life” are not included. What is the Criteria?

    • Good question! The Sight and Sound list polls critics from all over the world. While Americans think of “It’s a Wonderful Life” and “High Noon” as absolute classics, it’s possible that they don’t have as much international appeal. (Though “The Apartment” is on the Sight and Sound list.)

      However, Flixwise will soon introduce a new segment that will allow listeners to suggest movies for an alternate “Greatest of All Time” list. That might be a way for you to bring attention to films like “The Day the Earth Stood Still” or “Witness for the Prosecution.” Stay tuned!
