Take a minute-by-minute journey into the glittery heart of the greatest (and only) glam rock movie of the 1990s, Velvet Goldmine. Who killed Brian Slade? What's with the Oscar Wilde obsession? Why did Bowie sue? Couldn't they afford sturdier trousers for Ewan McGregor? These, and many more questions will be answered by your hard-rocking hosts, Mike Grasso and Jenny Anckorn as we take on... THE WHOLE SHEBANG!

Customer Reviews

really IS the whole shebang

If you have any interest in David Bowie, glam rock, queer cinema, or pop culture, go here now. Short, sweet, fun analysis.

Fun and informative take on a cult classic.

Did the world need a minute-by-minute analysis of Velvet Goldmine, the 1998 pseudo-biopic of David Bowie by queer director Todd Haynes? Probably not. But we're better off for having it in the form of this podcast.

The charm of this project for me is the combination of the hosts' personalities and backgrounds: Jenny is a Brit with a deep knowledge of rock-and-roll, glam, fashion, Bowie, and Haynes' various inspirations (Oscar Wilde, etc.). Michael is an American with an encyclopedic understanding of history (especially the '70s, and it shows in various flashes of insight) and general 20th Century weirdness. The two play to those strengths, and the end result is a delightful, conversational project that weaves together queer history, David Bowie biography (and hagiography), film-making techniques, gossip, fashion, and fairies. Check it out.

Entertaining and Informative!

A great podcast about a great movie! The hosts know their stuff about glam rock, pop culture, film. I was afraid that a minute-by-minute analysis of a movie would be dull and dry but Mike and Jenny are immensely entertaining and this feels like a conversation you would have with your (very smart) friends about a great movie. Glad it's daily becuase I usually can't wait for the next installment.
