Media & Entertainment Podcasts

With a wealth of musicals, westerns, sci-fi films, epics, comedies, character dramas and samurai movies, the 1950s was an exciting time for cinema. Here at Easy Riders Raging Podcast we're looking back at all the classics of the decade, discussing the films of Hitchcock, Wilder, Kurosawa, Kubrick and more. Aside from our discussions, each episode includes some of our trademark features such as Recastarama (where we recast the film using current actors) and Who Am I (where we work out who we would be in the film). Lots of fun to be had. [Our 1960s and 1970s series are also available]

Following on from our episode on 'Paths of Glory', this week we tackle another anti-war film as Anna Cale joins me for a discussion on J. Lee Thompson's 'Ice Cold in Alex'.

And be sure to download Anna's recent appearances on the podcasts 'Nolan Me, Nolan You' and 'The Fincher Takes It All', which are well worth your time and attention.
