11 TV and Movie Podcasts Every Pop Culture Nerd Needs in Their Life
Fall and winter are perfect for hibernating, thanks to new and returning fall TV shows and the release of several award-worthy movies. And when the credits roll and you find yourself needing more insight and opinions, a great place to turn is the world of podcasts. Whether you want an overview to keep you in the know or prefer to dig in on a particular show or movie, here are 11 of the best TV and movie podcasts for every pop culture nerd.
1. Little Gold Men: Featuring trusted critics, favorite stars, and talented creators, Vanity Fair‘s inside look at the Hollywood film and TV industry is perfect for any movie lover at any time, but especially during awards season.
You know those movies you can watch over and over again and never get sick of? Bill Simmons and other familiar names from the pop-culture section of The Ringer talk about their favorite “rewatchables,” with recent episodes covering Wedding Crashers, The Devil Wears Prada, The Princess Bride, and more.
The Bechdel Cast, hosts Jamie Loftus and Caitlin Durante look at how current and classic films fare against the seemingly simple (but too rarely met) criteria.
Who? Weekly will keep you appraised of what the “whos” and “thems” in Hollywood — or even just on Instagram — are up to. Their notable movie coverage of late includes the special recurring A Star Is Born segment, hilariously titled “Bradley Cooper Presents: ‘APodcast Segment Is Born‘ Starring Lady Gaga,” and you’ll likely relate deeply to their fierce support of Tinashe on Dancing With the Stars.
