Amazing in every way
This is an extraordinarily fantastic podcast.
Wonderfully written. Captivating and moving stories. It has a sumptuous, gentle pace; best heard on flights, at night or enjoying a quiet drink.
... And now I want to watch all of Hitchcock's and Val Lewton's movies.
Incredible! A masterpiece in it's own right.
I cannot recommend These podcasts enough. They're so well thoughout and planned, so well produced and narrated. The importance of Narration can be forgotten in this day of a zillion podcasts - but the host here speaks well with a clear knowledge and passion for his subjects. As a film fan that craves film history this series is heaven! I hope Adam continue to make this for a long time to come. And i hope he keeps the running times as long as they are - its great to just get lost in them. If you're a film fan or just want to get lost in emotive storytelling - then listen to this series! Keep up the great work!!!
👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻 Loving this series! Bullets & Blood was fantastic! Am pleased with the longer podcasts as there’s so much interesting facts to learn about, spanned over the many years they cover! So interesting with great narration, really enjoyed the Horror genre, 🧛🏻♂️ now listening to Alfred Hitchcock and I can’t believe it’s all for free! 😁😁😁 Thank you 🙏🏻
