Washington D.C. critics Charlie Juhl and Hannah Buchdahl debate new releases, from the mainstream movie Hannah tends to favor, to obscure indie and foreign films Charlie likes to champion. It’s free-flowing, unedited conversation, with the occasional wine wager. Two differing perspectives; one entertaining podcast. Let the clash begin! (Source)

Jennifer Owens says:

“This podcast pits two smart movie-loving critics with very different points of view. Hannah love mainstream movies while Charlie loves anything arty and difficult. Together they bring a broad array of movie reviews to the fore. My favorite episode is ‘Two Takes on the Top Five Most Anticipated Films of 2020.‘”

You Must Remember This

Stitcher | Katrina Longworth

Show Description:

jennifer owens

You Must Remember This is a storytelling podcast exploring the secret and/or forgotten histories of Hollywood’s first century. It’s the brainchild and passion project of Karina Longworth (founder of Cinematical.com, former film critic for LA Weekly), who writes, narrates, records and edits each episode. It is a heavily-researched work of creative nonfiction: navigating through conflicting reports, mythology, and institutionalized spin, Karina tries to sort out what really happened behind the films, stars and scandals of the 20th century.

Jennifer Owens says:

“Katrina Longworth not only dives deep in the secret and/or forgotten history of Hollywood’s first century, she connects the dots that make these stories relevant today. My favorite episode is ‘Passing for White: Merle Oberon (Make Me Over).‘”

Jennifer Owens says:

“Katherine’s podcast offers up deep reporting from often unheard/unseen corners of the working mom universe, challenging the world we live in today and speaking to the new generation of women taking on working and family. My favorite episode is ‘Let’s Talk About Sex, Baby.‘”

Journalists-turned-entrepreneurs, Manoush Zomorodi and Jen Poyant, share their struggles to build an ethically-minded company, Stable Genius Productions, all while investigating how other founders and creators are resisting the “winners take all” mindset of Silicon Valley. From techies putting humanity at the heart of their products, to artists looking beyond ‘likes’ and ‘shares’ for validation, and investors who value empathy over 100 X returns…there’s a new movement to chart a kinder, sustainable, and collective path forward for work and life. (Source)

Jennifer Owens says:

“This journalist-turned-entrepreneur duo shares their story of building an ethnically focused/family-friendly/sustainable company in an era of VC-backed ridiculousness. My favorite episode is ‘An Alternative to Silicon Valley’s “Unicorn” Bullshit.‘”
