7 Entertaining Movie Podcasts For Classic Movie Fans

Most days my iPod Nano and I are practically inseparable. I use it at work, in my car, at home when I’m cooking or cleaning, or when I head outside for a nice long walk.

I listen to my favorite music on it of course, but by far the thing I use it for the most is to listen to podcasts, including some great movie podcasts.

So, what is a podcast?

If you are not familiar with what a podcast is, it is a type of audio or video file, usually part of a series on a specific topic or subject area, that can be streamed online or downloaded and listened to on a mobile device or portable media player such as an iPod.

You can probably find a podcast on just about any subject imaginable, and I personally listen to podcasts on subjects ranging from health & nutrition, to sports, to business, to movies/entertainment.

I’m sure there are many different podcasts out there for movie lovers of all kinds, but today I am going to share some movie podcasts that have something to offer the classic movie fan.

Here are 7 of my favorite movie podcasts that I think you will enjoy:

1. TCM Presents Video Podcast

Out With the Old, In With the New – Looking Forward to 2012

Looking back over 2011, I would say that overall it was a very good year for me. It was the first year in a while where I had no major life changes or difficult challenges to overcome, and I am very grateful for that. It was also my first full year of blogging and although I’m proud of all I accomplished here on my blog, I didn’t quite achieve all that I had set out to do in terms of frequency or quality of posts and number of movies watched.

As I’m trying to do in other areas of my life, I think it’s good to take a step back and get some perspective by looking at everything you have accomplished and thinking of ways to improve upon them in the future. So if you don’t mind walking down memory lane with me, I will attempt to recap of a few of the topics I covered over the course of last year before I discuss a few of my plans for the new year.

My Cinematic Alphabet – Favorite Movies by the Letter

This is an idea I’ve seen going around the classic movie blogosphere, and I absolutely love doing these types of things so I thought I’d join in. Following is a list of some of my favorite movies, one for each letter of the alphabet. Most of them are from the time period that I typically blog about, the 1930’s through 1950’s, but a few of them are slightly newer movies that I just couldn’t leave off my list.

A is for All This and Heaven Too

B is for Back to the Future Continue reading →

Welcome to OldMoviesNostalgia.com

Welcome to my new blog about old movies. I am very excited to start sharing my love of old movies with others who have a passion for them or anyone who would like to learn more about them. For the purpose of this blog, I will be referring for the most part to movies that originated in the 1930’s through the 1950’s, although I may occasionally include movies from the late 1920’s or early 1960’s. At this time, I can’t exactly say that I am a fan of silent movies, but I hope to explore them more at some point in the future.

Although I have loved watching old movies for almost two decades now, it hasn’t always been that way. To read more about how I came to discover the enjoyment of movies that were made before I was even born, please see my About page.

Thanks for stopping by!
