I've been listening to the amazing Ron Moore BATTLESTAR GALACTICA podcasts. And I've checked out some of the Creative Screenwriting podcasts. What else should I listen to while I'm walking the dog?



THE TREATMENT - Elvis Mitchell, KCRW



All should be searchable in iTunes.

By Blogger Adam in Whitby, at 1:54 PM  

"Sam & Jim Go To Hollywood"
"The Business"

Both @ iTunes.

By Blogger The Spec Life, at 2:17 PM  

Stephen Fry's podgrams for the sheer enjoyment. The New York Review of Book's podcasts for insight. This American Life for story ideas.

By Blogger Olli Sulopuisto, at 3:12 PM  

Just in general or screenwriting/industry related?

I mean, just in general, I feel amiss not recommending Podcastle, Pseudopod, and Escape Pod if you like some genre short fiction on a morning walk. Because they're fairly consistently awesome.

As for screenwriting, the only thing that comes off the top of my head is I Should Be Writing, which is about writing and staying disciplined, etc. Mostly directed towards comic and prose, though.

Oh, and This American Life. Because, you know, This American Life. It's equally awesome.

By Blogger Patrick Regan, at 3:16 PM  

Not screenwriting related but this guy Richard Fidler has a very nice easy interviewing style where it is just like the name of his show, the Conversation Hour.

He sits and chats with his guest who vary from nuns to camel ladies to resistance fighters, sportsmen and women to scientist, writers, film-makers, etc. Below are some links for you.

http://www.abc.net.au/brisbane/conversations/default.htm - main site for downloading his podcasts.

Somes good interviews:

http://www.abc.net.au/local/stories/2008/05/15/2246094.htm?site=brisbane - resistance fighter

http://www.abc.net.au/local/stories/2008/11/04/2409620.htm?site=brisbane - adventurers travelled length of the Amazon, have not listened to this one yet but should be interesting.

http://www.abc.net.au/local/stories/2009/01/19/2469231.htm?site=brisbane - trains police and soldiers in self-defence

http://www.abc.net.au/local/stories/2009/01/28/2476405.htm?site=brisbane - mother and daughter seperated for 14 years when the father kidnapped his daughter.

As you can see, great variety of subjects. Hope you enjoy.

But Alex, I thought BSG was too dark?

By Blogger DMc, at 3:58 PM  

...forgot about Rob Long's "Martini Shot" @ KCRW.

Also available at iTunes.

By Blogger The Spec Life, at 4:28 PM  

I love "The Business" on KCRW - not writing related, but he does great interviews with industry people.

By Blogger Wool in Sunshine, at 4:49 PM  

Well, I prefer erotica. It makes walking the dog a LOT more interesting.

Lots of free stuff here:


It's fanfic read aloud, most of it being sexually explicit. :-)

By Blogger Xina Uhl, at 4:58 PM  

For your inner geek, the Groks Science show. groks.net

By Blogger David, at 6:52 PM  

Also, Studio 360 from NPR. It's an arts show.

By Blogger David, at 7:33 PM  

Your mileage may vary, but Pilar Alessandra's On the Page podcast:


Not film:

American Theatre Wing's podcast series:


If you don't subscribe to MSNBC, Rachel Maddow's show is available in both video and audio versions.

By Blogger delta888, at 2:23 PM  

I bounce around a few different podcasts, but my favorites are:

On The page
Creative Screenwriting
The Treatment

By Blogger Kody¬†Chamberlain, at 5:12 PM  

I used to rip DVD commentaries to mp3 to listen while walking the dog. It's often helpful NOT to be distracted by the picture.

Unfortunately no more time to indulge in such bliss.

Unfortunately no more dog, either.

By Blogger Karel, at 5:12 PM  

Lots of my favs here already
but two more:

"Radiolab" (http://www.wnyc.org/shows/radiolab/) Best science show on radio and many story-inspiring segments.

"The Moth" (www.themoth.org/)
True tales told live on stage.
Find the one told by the firefighter. Amazing.

(also, i do a cbc podcast myself if you like film reviews...it's a long way from Radiolab but it's a start. "Glasner on Film" @ iTunes.)

By Blogger Eli Glasner, at 11:01 AM  

I third The Treatment. Elvis Mitchell is one of the best-informed, most thoughtful interviewers out there.

By Blogger Patrick, at 3:33 PM  

Moving Image Source's Pinewood Dialogues seem worthwile: www.movingimage.us/pinewood/

By Blogger Olli Sulopuisto, at 6:00 AM  

My list of podcast include:

- SModCast
- Filmspotting
- Fat Guys at the Movies
- The Business
- Martini Shot
- Creative Screenwriting
- Sam and Jim Go to Hollywood

All on iTunes. Most updated weekly.

By Blogger Adriano Ariganello, at 12:25 PM  

I host "Conversations With..." an interview series for USC's School of Cinematic Arts. Podcasts of my interviews with screenwriters and directors can be found at www.cinema.usc.edu/podcasts or through iTunes.

A second vote for Filmspotting!

Also, Adam Carolla's new podcast is terrific, funny stuff.
