For episode number forty three, I was once again joined by regulars Myles Hughes and Steven Prusakowski, along with pseudo-regular Ryan McQuade, as well as the return of Mitchell Beaupre.

#42: We Take a Trip With 'Zola,' Play a Palme d'Or Game, and Visit Julianne Moore-More
For episode forty two, I was once again joined by regulars Myles Hughes and Steven Prusakowski, along with Ryan McQuade. This show features more Loki talk, as well as a fun Palme d'Or related game. Plus, there's more of a debate about Zola, as not everyone loves it quite as much as yours truly. My review is here if you need a refresher, but it's a healthy debate, which is always appreciated. The other usual shenanigans are here as well, so dive right in...

#39: Breaking Down Why 'In the Heights' Didn't Break the Box Office
For episode number thirty nine, it was a more intimate affair this week. I was joined once again by podcast regular Myles Hughes and Steve Prusakowski, but only them. It'll be a bigger crowd again next week, but today was a smaller gathering. We tackle an Owen Wilson related question, build another Mount Rushmore, speculate on Loki, and discuss In the Heights more. The latter two topics are most of what we're up to, but there's plenty of other silliness and random asides to be found, as always...

This week, pseudo regular Ryan McQuade returns, while Mitchell Beaupre makes their second appearance. Expect Mitch to be a pseudo regular going forward, too.

Welcome back to the Awards Radar Podcast. In each episode, Editor Joey Magidson (that’s me!) will be joined by some of the staff of Awards Radar to talk about the latest in film, television, and entertainment in general. The show will obviously have an awards season slant to it, but we won’t forget about other movies and shows, that’s for sure! For this special episode, we're at our absolute silliness. I was joined by Myles Hughes and Ryan McQuade to bid farewell to Sugar and Spicey, but having Kevin Spicey sit in for an in studio interview. As you might expect, it's ridiculous and a bit stupid, but Myles knocks it out of the park. Ryan introduces a new character, too, so be sure to find out who/what that is. Suffice it to say, it all goes off the rails...

For episode number thirty five, I was joined once again by podcast regular Myles Hughes, along with fellow Saw fan Kendall Tinston, in addition to Casey Tinston as well. Much like with episode four back last year (listen here), it's a Saw-centric podcast. This time around, we also give our fuller thoughts on Spiral: From the Book of Saw, as well as take a number of Spiral-related questions from you the listeners. After my rave review (here), interview with director Darren Lynn Bousman (here), interview with cinematographer Jordan Oram (here), and Sunday Scaries piece (here), we've really cornered the market on discussing Spiral.

For episode number thirty two (closing out Oscar season), I was joined once again by podcast regulars Myles Hughes and Steven Prusakowski.

For episode number thirty one (if you can believe it), I was joined once again by podcast regulars Myles Hughes and Steven Prusakowski, along with our pseudo regular Ryan McQuade.

This time around, we focus heavily on our Academy Award predictions, including the big categories giving everyone headaches.

#19 - Early Oscars Rundown with Mark Johnson & Sitcom Madness
For episode number nineteen, I was joined once again by podcast regulars Myles Hughes and Steven Prusakowski. We also saw the return of my old pal (pun intended) Mark Johnson. Yes, my former colleague and current friend Mark popped in this time to talk Oscar with us. Formerly of Awards Circuit and now at Awards Daily, Mark was kind enough to make it another mini Circuit Breaker reunion of sorts. He hangs out for a rundown of the various Academy Award categories before Myles regales us with another episode of, you guessed it...Sugar and Spicy!

#18: 'Judas and the Black Messiah' Deep Dive with Keith Lucas, & Sitcom Comedy Ensues
For episode number eighteen, I was joined once again by podcast regulars Myles Hughes and Steve Prusakowski, alongside pseudo-regular Ryan McQuade. However, far more notably, we were joined once again by actor, comedian, and writer Keith Lucas. We talk some more Judas and the Black Messiah, having now seen the film. Then, we debut the ridiculous skit we teased out last week. Myles outdid himself, so kudos there. It’s a good one, I think, a mix of interview and our regular podcasting nonsense, with utter stupidity of the highest order thrown in for good measure. Once again, it was great to also catch up with Keith, which I’m pretty sure comes across in the conversation this time as well. Even with all the silliness, I hope you all enjoy the eighteenth episode of the Awards Radar Podcast. As always, feel free to revisit the previous dozen installments by clicking the Podcast tab on the top of the page.

#17: Hanks For Everything, Bad Movie Pitches, Sugar & Spice
For episode number seventeen, I was joined once again by podcast regulars Myles Hughes and Steven Prusakowski. Boy, were we in a silly mood, starting with our newest commercial. This time around, we answered questions, sure, but we also played a game. That game, in turn, may just have generated a recurring segment. You'll have to listen to know exactly what I'm talking about, but trust me, it's a fun one. Plus, we're going to have Keith Lucas on again next week to talk Judas and the Black Messiah some more, so that's very exciting... Silliness and all, I hope you all enjoy the seventeenth episode of the Awards Radar Podcast. As always, feel free to revisit the previous dozen installments by clicking the Podcast tab on the top of the page.

For episode number sixteen, I was joined once again by podcast regulars Myles Hughes and Steven Prusakowski, plus pseudo-regular Ryan McQuade. This time around, we hit on a few different topics, including Carey Mulligan and the Best Actress race. Specifically, we look into the possibility that the Actress lineup could feature three women of color (Viola Davis, Andra Day, and Zendaya). Plus, we continue to run a few recurring gags into the ground. If you enjoy the teasing of Myles and Steve, let us know. If it's getting to be too much...well, let us know too. No promises, though! I hope you all enjoy the sixteenth episode of the Awards Radar Podcast. As always, feel free to revisit the previous dozen installments by clicking the Podcast tab on the top of the page.

# 15: The Most Anticipated Films of 2021 Filmaholic Face-Offs
For episode number fifteen, kicking off 2021, I was joined once again by podcast regulars Myles Hughes and Steve Prusakowski. This time around, 2021 was the main focus. Specifically, we looked at a number of films from my 2021 anticipated movies piece (here). Obviously, many are holdovers from 2020, but not all. It led to a fun back and forth, especially as we got to some, let's call them...less than likely Oscar contenders. In particular, a moment or two led to my brain breaking, which Myles and Steve really enjoyed. I think you will too. As always, a really good time was had by all.

For episode number fourteen, rearing its head here on New Year's Eve, I was joined once again by podcast regulars Myles Hughes and Steve Prusakowski. However, much more notably, we were joined by actor, comedian, and writer Keith Lucas. We talk about comedy, his favorites of the year, and obviously Judas and the Black Messiah. Then, we put a bow on 2020 with some end of the year talk. It's a good one, I think, a mix of interview and our regular podcasting nonsense. Beyond all that, it was great to also catch up with Keith, which I'm pretty sure comes across in the conversation. I hope you all enjoy the fourteenth episode of the Awards Radar Podcast, especially pertaining to Keith Lucas. Also, obviously, enjoy your New Year's Eve (safely), folks.

#13: Christmas Eve with The MCU, "FU Steve," and a Bad Movie Propostition
For episode number thirteen, dropping on Christmas Eve, I was joined once again by regulars Myles Hughes and Steve Prusakowski. We spend a lot of time ranking the Marvel Cinematic Universe while answering a reader question. Then, things go rather off the rails. You can hear for yourself, but I suspect the ridiculousness will prove a bit divisive. Essentially, this will either be your favorite episode of the podcast, due to how wacky it gets, or it’ll be your least favorite, considering how off-track things go. Either way, we hope it gives you all at least a few laughs today! I hope you all enjoy the thirteenth episode of the Awards Radar Podcast, craziness and all! Also, obviously, enjoy Christmas Eve, folks. Plus, feel free to revisit the previous dozen installments by clicking the Podcast tab on the top of the page. More to come each week!

#12: Mark Johnson Pops in to Talk Sports, Oscar Categories, and More
For episode number twelve, I was joined once again by staff member Ryan McQuade, while an old pal (pun intended) dropped by. Yes, former colleague and current friend Mark Johnson popped in this time around. Formerly of Awards Circuit and now at Awards Daily, Mark was kind enough to make it a mini Circuit Breaker reunion. We got in some sports talk, as we’re all big football fans, though we obviously got down to movies, too. Christopher Nolan‘s Tenet was a subject, as were a few of the Oscar categories. To be sure, we hit a bit of everything, from Academy Award chatter, all the way to Cleveland Browns history. Readers, we’re a dozen strong now. Enjoy this twelfth episode of the Awards Radar Podcast!

#11: Eric Marchen Joins the Gang to Muse About Best Actor and the Warner Bros. / HBO Max Situation
For episode number eleven, I was joined once again by Myles Hughes alongside special guest Eric Marchen. A fellow critic, Eric was kind enough to have me on two of his shows (here and here), we were delighted to return the favor. We tackle a reader question, followed by a spirited discussion about what Warner Bros. is doing with their 2021 slate, in terms of HBO Max. Throw in some Best Actor chatter, as well as a brief bit on News of the World, and there’s plenty of topics on display today… Readers, enjoy this eleventh episode of the Awards Radar Podcast!

#10: Best Actress Talk, The Talented Mr. Fincher, and More!
For episode number ten, I was joined once again by Myles Hughes, Ryan McQuade, and Steve Prusakowski for a good bit of fun. We answer a handful of questions, taking on where babies come from, debating the films of David Fincher, and even doing some Oscar talk. It’s madness, but do you expect any less out of us? I didn’t think so. As always, we had a blast doing the podcast, so if even a bit of it comes off in the recording, it should be a good time. Of course, let us know if you happen to agree… Faithful readers, I hope you’re healthy and staying safe. Now, enjoy this tenth episode of the Awards Radar Podcast!

#9: Visual F/X, The Rule of Thr33s, and Talking Turkey
For episode nine, I was joined once again by Myles Hughes and Steve Prusakowski for a ton of fun, with Ryan McQuade joining in as well. We talk turkey, with Thanksgiving having been yesterday (though we recorded this episode back on Sunday). There’s also a long breakdown of the last decade in Best Visual Effects winners and nominees, buoyed by a reader question. Throw in a bit of Soul chatter, among other topics, and it’s a nice little grab bag of topics. As always, we had a blast doing the podcast, so if even a bit of it comes off in the recording, it should be a good time. Of course, let us know if you agree… Everyone, I hope you had a great Thanksgiving.

#8: A Deep Dive on Vince Vaughn, Howard vs Howard, and More!
With episode eight upon us, I was joined once again by Myles Hughes and Steve Prusakowski for a hearty bit of nonsense. We answer a listener/reader question that leads to a discussion of various Ron Howard films. We do a deep dive on Vince Vaughn, focusing on three movies in particular. Some of the recent Oscar contenders seen by yours truly get briefly talked about. It’s a hodgepodge of all of the things you’ve come to expect from us, so hopefully you enjoy it.

#7: No One Puts Swayze in the Corner
For episode lucky number seven of the podcast, I was joined once again by Myles Hughes and Steve Prusakowski, as well as Max Joseph. We get the election out of our system, talking about Joe Biden‘s victory and Donald Trump‘s defeat. Yes, we even do a quick little comedy bit. Then, we get to the business of movies. In addition to taking reader questions, there’s a handful of different topics. Plus, the gang misunderstands a Patrick Swayze comment of mine, with some amusement ensuing. Fingers crossed you all have as good a time listening the this episode of the podcast as we did recording the damn thing.

#6: Election Jitters, ‘Mank’ Talk, a Farewell to Sean Connery, and Video Games
*Special Note: At the start of this episode there’s an extra introduction. The podcast was recorded initially on Sunday morning, but the extra intro is from yesterday evening. Obviously, the election has swung in wild directions, so the added bit at the top addresses it. The full episode follows.* A half dozen episodes in, I was joined once again by Myles Hughes and Steve Prusakowski. We joke a bit about the election (which hasn’t aged too well), but then go off in a number of directions. There’s talk of David Fincher‘s Mank, before the review embargo lifts tomorrow. There’s a farewell to Sean Connery and James Bond talk. Plus, we talk video games, too. There truly is something for everyone here with this podcast… Friends, enjoy the sixth episode of the Awards Radar Podcast and feel free to revisit the previous installments by clicking the Podcast tab on the top of the page!

#5: Joey, Myles, Robert, and Steve Get Political
This time around, I was joined once again by Myles Hughes and Steve Prusakowski, but also welcomed back Robert Hamer to the world of podcasting. We tackle a handful of recent film news, as well as Halloween and the impending election. It’s a nice little hodgepodge of topics, complete with a mysterious creepy voice that bleeds into the audio at one point. A special shoutout will go to whomever comes up with the best explanation for what the voice is, what it’s saying, and why it’s there…

#4: We Came. We SAW. We Podcasted. The Gang Plays a Game with the ‘Saw’ Franchise
This time around, I was joined by Myles Hughes and Kendall Tinston to do a deep dive on the Saw franchise. Not only do we run down each of the installments in the series, we talk about the various traps, what we love about the iconic horror flicks, and what we laugh about. You even get some chatter about the video game, hopes for the upcoming Spiral: From the Book of Saw, and more. It’s a lot of fun, if we do say so ourselves. The three of us enjoyed ourselves immensely, so we hope you do too, especially if you’re a Saw fan. Indulgent? Perhaps a little. But, where else can you get yours truly doing an awful impression of John Kramer/The Jigsaw Killer? Exactly… Enjoy the fourth episode of the Awards Radar Podcast and feel free to revisit the Saw franchise before, after, or during this podcast!

This time around, I’m joined by Abe Friedtanzer and Max Joseph to discuss the trailers for films like Mank, News of the World, and Promising Young Woman, as well as some Oscar talk in relation to each of these potential contenders. Plus, more horror movie and political movie recommendations to chew on, which leads to Abe and Max admitting to not being huge fans of the genre. Some gentle easing ensues… Enjoy the second episode of the Awards Radar Podcast!

#2: Joey and Myles Take On the Delayed Films of 2020
This time around, I was joined by Myles Hughes to tackle the gargantuan task of running down all of the films delayed in one form or another this year. It’s an epic list, one filled with movies coming out in 2021, 2022, and beyond (plus some random 2020 releases, still). As such, there are a number of tangents, as well as the teasing of a special Halloween edition of the podcast coming soon where Myles and I will be running down the SAW franchise with fellow Awards Radar writer Kendall Tinston. If you’re a fan of the franchise, it’s one not to miss… Enjoy the third episode of the Awards Radar Podcast and look out for that special SAW edition of the podcast soon!

#1: Welcome and Enjoy the Mess!
As promised, we are delighted to launch into orbit the Awards Radar Podcast. In each episode, Editor Joey Magidson (that’s me!) will be joined by some of the staff of Awards Radar to talk about the latest in film, television, and entertainment in general. The show will obviously have an awards season slant to it, but we won’t forget about other movies and shows, that’s for sure! Starting things off, I’m joined by Myles Hughes and Steven Prusakowski to talk about a few Oscar categories, take a question from a reader (and now hopefully listener), and mix in as much silliness as possible. With it being almost Halloween and election season, we have some bonus movie recommendations to share as well, so listen for those… Enjoy episode one of the podcast and be sure to let us know your thoughts!
