Glad to see a mostly positive reaction to the launch of our currently-untitled movie podcast. If you're confused about why this exists, Alex and I both used to work for Screened.com back in the Whiskey Media days, where we had a weekly podcast that focused on movies and television. When BermanBraun bought Screened, neither of us wound up working for it, so we stopped doing that podcast a few weeks shy of our 100th episode.
Alex and I still like talking about movies, so it was a natural thing to try and make some fresh content for GiantBomb, especially since CBS makes it pretty easy to podcast in their podcast studio. Doing this stuff in Audacity instead of Garageband (especially with someone Skyping in) is super simple.
Hopefully you guys enjoy our ruminations on the current cinema arts - we'll figure out some avenue for user questions in the future. And we're still working on the format, so obviously there's some tweaking yet to be done; we'll work out a title and some music before the next episode, I hope. Let me know if there are any issues with the audio.
As far as its premium status goes, this is pretty obviously not core game coverage, so it seemed to fit better as premium content when we were conceiving it. Apologies if anyone is bummed out at not having access to it, but for the moment hopefully our premium members enjoy it! And if you don't, feel free to let me know why.
