Welcome back Mr. Jansen.
Great podcast. It's good to see John doing something like this again.
Not long after the unfortunate end to The Hollywood Saloon, John Jansen starts a new podcast called The Hollywood Gauntlet. With each episode will come extensive show notes, which offers an unprecedented look into the films that are discussed. Aside from the Saloon itself, no other film podcast comes close to offering what Jansen and friends offer in these feature-length film discussions. Simply amazing. The amount of information, discussion, clips, music, & effects amount to an extraordinary production, unmatched by other film podcasts. Now, if we could only get Andy Siems up and running with his new podcast. ;-)
Welcome, Welcome all.
