Needs an angle
I've listened for a while and still don't know what this show is supposed to be about except it centers around movies in some way. I end up deleting it often within the first minute.
Just what is says on the lable
OK, so it probably is scripted - but it really does come off as a couple of movie buffs chatting over the cube wall. Always interesting. Not a lot of depth ( it is usually 5m or less ) but I usually come away with at least one movie to check out.
Entertaining Movie Minute
As a former Minnesotan, now living in LA, it's great to still hear MPR's film reviews via podcast. Nice, enjoyable cinema banter on the latest films playing in the Twin Cities.
