Comedy Podcasts >

We’re guys, we’re talking about film – it’s the Guys on Film Podcast! But what is the Guys on Film Podcast? Well, future listener, you’re about to find out! Iain and Olly first became aware of one another’s existence whilst working on award winning video games. A few years of deeply troubling ‘friendship’ later, they decided to start a podcast, not about games, but about films. Yes, that’s right: two guys with literally no experience in the movie industry escort you through 70 minutes of hastily researched cinematic chat... every Sunday! During that (non-refundable) 70 minutes expect your ears to be delighted by the ever-changing format of the opening segment: a look at the weird and wonderful world of the IMDB Parents Guide or host vs. host challenges, where somebody is always Wrong, Dead Wrong. We’ll appraise you of the state of our lives in LifeScores during the intermission and of course... the feature presentation: the 4x Deep Dive. This, the meat and potentially potatoes of the “'sode”, is an in-depth factchat around a movie-related theme. Be it Steven Seagal or horror films, be it Milla Jovovich or cinema snacks, you just know Iain will have a big opinion and Olly will pronounce everything incorrectly. Listen in wonder at interviews with the likes of Ben Wheatley of Free Fire or Alice Lowe of Prevenge, and delight at the semi-regular drop-ins from cine-illiterate friend of the podcast, Peter Cater. BYE!
