During the past few years, I've become a certified podcast junkie. I've slowly compiled a large group of podcasts on film and other subjects for regular listening at work and during commutes. The movie podcast list keeps growing, and I'm struggling to find time to keep up with all of the great content. The first of these was the classic Filmspotting, and a more recent examples is Film Junk. Each of these podcasts is insightful and entertaining in a different way, and they just scratch the surface of the many options in existence.
Another fun podcast is the LAMBcast, the official show of the LAMB (Large Association of Movie Blogs). Since I joined the LAMB in June as a member blog, I've interacted with lots of friendly movie fans who deliver excellent posts in their blogs each day. This also gave me the chance to actually participate in the LAMBcast, which was an exciting opportunity. I joined a fine group of guys for episode #79, which follows the 5-on-5 idea created by Nick from Random Ramblings of a Demented Doorknob. Basically each participant selected an idea for a Top 5 List, and the others brought one movie from each category to the table. The results were good fun and made for an entertaining discussion.
If you'd like to hear my bumbling attempts to explain this blog and our discussions about some great Top 5 List topics, check out this LAMBcast episode. The recording also includes a fascinating discussion on the Best Rock-hard Abs in movies, which explains the Daniel Craig photo at the top of this post. The other guys along for the fun were Dylan from Man I Love Films, Dan from the Midnight Movie Club, and Sebastian from Films From the Supermassive Black Hole. Despite my appearance, this is actually an excellent podcast. If you have 90 minutes to spare, I promise that it will be a wonderful experience.
