Settling the Score

By Jon & Andy

To listen to an audio podcast, mouse over the title and click Play. Open iTunes to download and subscribe to podcasts.


Join Jon and Andy as they explore the world of film music, one score at a time. Each episode is an in-depth discussion of a classic film score: what makes it tick, how it serves the movie, and whether it's, you know, any good. It's a freewheeling, opinionated conversation with an analytical bent, richly illustrated with musical examples. No expertise required. The series begins by tackling “100 Years of Film Scores," the AFI's list of (purportedly) the 25 greatest scores in American cinema history. Jonathan Dinerstein writes music for film and television in Hollywood. Andy Boroson is a music director for theater in New York. They've been chatting together about movie music for 20 years. Join the conversation on Twitter @ScoreSettlers.

Customer Reviews

I've always been a fan of movie music...

...but this podcast helped me appreciate it on a new level! Jon and Andy are funny and entertaining but also incredibly knowledgeable, and the way they break down the music in a movie, cue by cue, walking you through what works and why and what they might have done differently is endlessly fun and fascinating.

If you like movie music, or if you just like movies or music, this is truly worth a subscription.

Excellent new podcast!

This fills a big hole in the podcast world. With an insightful and charming take on film music, the hosts are extremely knowledgeable and the musical examples are striking and compelling. Can't wait to hear them agree/quibble with the rest of the scores on the AFI's list.

The best movie music critique podcast I've ever heard!

If you love movies and/or movie music, you should definitely check out this great new podcast. Jon and Andy thoroughly dissect, analyze and geek-out over the greatest movie music ever composed. Production values are fantastic with them playing examples of exactly what they’re discussing so even a casual movie music buff can appreciate their points. Plus, they don’t ever mention Trump. At least not yet. Nice job, guys!
