The Podcast

TMB logo 1

I also co-host a bi-weekly movie podcast called The Milkshake Boom. Every other week, we discuss hidden gems, cult films, and guest favorites. 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.

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 on iTunes here: http://apple.co/20oUZ34

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