“It’s about damn time!” For the last few weeks we have been offering audio versions of our episodes in a ‘podcast’ – but a podcast with purely recycled content was pretty ho-hum. So ho-hum no longer, we are happy to introduce the start of the Armchair Directors Podcast 2.0. The new revamped format kicks off with ALL NEW CONTENT, so check it out – then the last part of the podcast will be the episode audio reviews we’ve been bringing you.
So for the inaugural episode of Podcast 2.0 Crandall and Mercy talk about the Alien invasion flick “Skyline” (polished turd), Johnny Depp and Angelina Jolie in “The Tourist”, we shoot the breeze about some new Hollywood gossip, get a quick rundown on “Limitless” and “Paul” and totally geek out at the idea of a Robocop statue – throw in the episode 14 reviews of “Battle: Los Angeles”, “The Next Three Days” and a blu-ray spotlight and you’ve got over an hour of Armchair Director podcast goodness. Get clickin’!
If adventure has a podcast, it must be the INDYCAST! Crandall & Mercy chat with Ed Dolista of the Indycast about all things Indiana Jones!
You can listen to the podcast at http://www.forcecast.net
Everyone that donates a new unwrapped toy to this wonderful event will receive a special thanks credit on the Toy Mountain page on the IMDB site.
