We have a new promo up for our movie podcast, The Milkshake Boom! For those of you not familiar with the podcast, the films we choose are ones that either the guest or the panel have a personal affinity for, sometimes completely irrationally. We are currently five episodes in, and so far it’s been a ridiculous amount of […]

The Podcast

TMB logo 1

I’m co-host on a podcast with Robert James Haynes called The Milkshake Boom. Every week on the podcast, we have a guest brings a film from their past that they love. The film doesn’t have to be a classic, or objectively great, it just has to be a film that the guest has an emotional connection with. Everyone on the panel watches the film, and then we discuss. At the end, the panel and the guest rate the film.

The discussions and the movie choices so far have tended to be absurd, and often hilarious. It’s also been fascinating to hear the passion and the stories behind each choice. You can listen to my first pick (and the inaugural episode) here.

You can find more information and the latest episodes on The Milkshake Boom website. Don’t forget to subscribe!

Christine Carstairs

Christine Carstairs

Writer/Director

Writer and director Christine Carstairs first started in film working as a grip and camera operator on student films and independent music videos in her home province of Alberta, Canada. After a brief break, during which she immigrated to the United States, she picked right back up where she left off in her new home state of Texas. After directing two music videos, Christine then produced and acted as the director of photography for the short film 'The Spell Book', which was subsequently selected to screen at the 19th Annual Austin Film Festival. She recently wrote and directed her first narrative work 'Drastic Measures', a sci-fi horror short film.
