The Film Mobcast – Ep. 1

Earphones at the ready for the debut episode of The Film Magazine’s first-ever podcast, The Film Mobcast, hosted by relative amateurs (but budding big-time talk show hosts) Joseph Wade and Katie Doyle, who discuss what’s happening in the world of film this week, and evaluate the career of the legendary Leonard Nimoy.

Throughout this 67-minute episode, recorded with frankly amateur-hour equipment from within the confines of the University of York in the United Kingdom, our hosts discuss film wizards – from Albus Dumbledore of Harry Potter to Gandalf from The Lord of the Rings, and beyond – as well as the inevitability of an ‘Independence Day 2’ lacking Will Smith, and a fitting tribute to Star Trek’s iconic Spock, filmmaker and actor Leonard Nimoy who sadly passed away recently at 83 years of age.

Please note: this episode was once housed on Soundcloud but is now exclusively available via YouTube and accessible only via the video embedded on this page.

You can find more podcasts on the world of cinema from The Film Magazine on our Podcasts page. This includes a one-off series on Cinema’s Most Romantic Moments, with each episode contributed by a member of The Film Magazine’s team.

You can also find the podcasts we’ve partnered with, such as The Mrs At the Movies: a podcast upon which one cinephile host introduces his wife-to-be to a wide range of movies she should have probably already seen. It’s a hoot!

For the most up-to-date insight into the world of cinema, and for a more academic approach to film criticism, evaluation and analysis, please subscribe to Second Cut Podcast on YouTube and tune in to weekly live broadcasts from Jacob Davis, Kieran Judge and Sam Sewell-Peterson. The trio discuss everything from Troma Entertainment movies to Luca Guadagnino, the best films of all time to the trashiest Lindsay Lohan movies.
