Thoughts from your host…


So much afoot that it’s hard to believe it’s only been one week since the last episode.

For starters, as I mentioned in the intro, you can now find The Matineecast on Pocketcast if that’s an app you use to source your audio goodness (sure seems cool from what I’ve seen of it). I actually need to give a word of thanks to the fine folks at Pocketcast who made getting the show listed amazingly easy, and likewise to dear friend and loyal listener Sam McCosh for planting the seed of the idea.

If you’re a Pocketcast user, The Matineecast can be found here.

Then there’s the feed for the show itself, which has had its own issues for a few weeks unbeknownst to me. Besides not even realizing it until I tried to point someone towards an old episode, my attempt at fixing it was a quick study in the difference between horses and zebras. Long story short, if you’ve noticed a problem trying to play old episodes, the problem has now been fixed.

Finally there’s the placement of this episode in relationship to my review of the film up for discussing – which is way, way ahead of schedule. In the past, I have recorded episodes the day I write the review of them…sometimes even a day or two ahead. In this instance, Bob and I hashed out our thoughts on J.C. Chandor’s new film a whole week before word one of my review has been typed. I say this because my thoughts may come across a bit more scattered than usual, and I say this because my thoughts may change by the time my review drops on Friday.

Like I said – so much afoot…


Thanks for tuning into episode one-hundred-thirty.
