Pontypool Episode 63   The Podcast Trilogy ConcludesIt concludes.

Three movies.
Three podcasters.
Three shows.

As the experiment draws to a close, I’m struck by a few things. First of all is the fact that this episode of The Matineecast is somewhat epic in nature. It’s the longest episode I’ve ever done (a runtime I don’t see myself eclipsing anytime soon). I could have been more vicious with the editing, however I thought three people weighing in on three films deserved the proper room to breathe. So if the lack of brevity bothers you, My apologies.

The second thing that strikes me is the quality of the end result. When I came to Dan and Brian with this idea in the spring, it seemed tricky and involved. The fact that the three of us had never been on the same podcast together, and thus were unsure of our combined chemistry, made thing that much more uncertain. With all of that in mind, I couldn’t be happier with the end result of the three-show series. The guys have been gracious hosts, fantastic guests, and turned this experiment into everything I wanted it to be – and more!

Finally, I’m struck with a sense of gratefulness for anyone who listened to all three instalments. When a film like THE DARK KNIGHT RISES drops, it seems as though everybody in the blogosphere is talking about it – so if you’ve allowed Brian, Dan, and I to talk to you about it for almost four hours, then I can’t help but be very thankful for the support.
