I only recently started listening to podcasts (used to be one of those anti-smartphone guys lol) and Filmcast is the one I'm obsessing over. Great humor and chemistry between them, and more often then not they have very interesting takes on things. Was listening to their Stowaway review today - a film I enjoyed to some degree, but they described it as some sort of masterpiece and brought up some really interesting things that completely went over my head on my first viewing. Made me wanna rewatch it instantly . 

Cool! I missed that thread. It's crazy how underrated it is when he is so committed to this whole thing. Highly recommend it to everyone here!

I discovered that podcast after seeking out reviews of "Get Out." Their take on that film (with guest Aisha Harris) was just stunningly insightful, so I was instantly hooked. Became completely obsessed with the podcast and listened to their entire back catalogue from the very beginning, downloading mp3 files one-by-one on slashfilm.com.

Co-host Jeff Cannata has gone on to create The Dungeon Run, which is one of my favorite things ever. He's obviously a great podcaster but TDR unlocks his entire array of talents.

Loving this show so far. It's reminding me a lot of Atlanta, at least Atlanta's less surreal, more grounded episodes. Few shows are so good at capturing that specificity of culture and setting.

I'm enjoying 'Dogs' as well.  Not very plot-heavy, we just spend a little time in their world each episode--getting to know everyone.
