New Podcast! Scannain Podcast (2018) #5!

A very brief Scannain podcast for a very busy week!

Discussing the latest in film news here and abroad, the Scannain podcast is a weekly podcast discussion of what we watched, what we talked about, what is dominating and the box office, and what is lurking on the horizon film-wise. This week we talked about everything from food bullying to Ryan Murphy to the upcoming slate of Irish horror films, along with usual features like the top ten.

I’m thrilled to be part of a panel including returning guest Grace Duffy and new guests Nicola Timmins and (late arrival) Daniel Anderson. Give it a listen below.

New year, new Scannain podcast!

The wonderful folk over at Scannain, spearheaded by the fantastic Niall Murphy, are relaunching the Scannain podcast.

I was thrilled to join Niall Murphy, Grace Duffy and Jason Coyle for the Scannain End of Year Podcast 2017, a podcast looking back at the best and worst in film in the Irish calendar year of 2017. Included is a discussion of the biggest films at the Irish box office, the worst films of the year, and each individual’s top ten films.

We’re hoping to get recording the podcast with a bit more regularity in the new year, but, in the meantime, check out the podcast below.

The boys are back in town.

Just in time for Christmas, and at the end of what has been a divisive year, the Scannain crew re-team to talk through the best and worst of film in 2016.

With thirty films across the four top tens, the Scannain – End of Year 2016! has everything you’re looking for a cinematic retrospective on the year that’s been.

What were the best films released in 2016? What constitutes a “film” for the purpose of an end of year list? Was the summer really that bad? Will Niall, Phil, Jay and I agree on anything? Tune in and find out. Click here (or the picture below) to listen.
