It's Here, Big Mike's Movie Podcast!


Yes, I have taken the plunge and recorded a podcast! I am still working out kinks, figuring out scheduling, content and guests, so please give it a listen and I am soliciting as much feedback as possible, so tell me what you think!




In the first episode, my best friend, Graham Greenlee and I discuss the everything Oscar this year. We talked for so long that we actually had to break it up into two episodes, then because I'm dumb, I lost the second part and forced us to re-record. It's been a labor of love for me so far, but I'm really pleased with what we have. But, we really analyze the Oscars and dissect the nominees as well as we can, giving you our picks for the awards show on March 7. You can download your official Oscar ballot to make your picks and check out the sites we mention which include Awards Daily and The Film Experience, both excellent sites.



You can find my podcast at on podOmatic at Big Mike's Movie Podcast and it will be available on iTunes soon as well. Of course, if you're on Facebook, you can follow Big Mike's Movie Blog on Networked Blogs and there are plenty of ways on the sidebar to the right for you to subscribe and share my blog.

So, to sum up, looking for feedback, content and guests and above all else, enjoy!

great job dude! it's about time you got a podcast. I enjoyed listening and hopefully you continue to do this man I'm happy for ya.

I've been considering do a podcast for a while (hey the LAMBcast/Trax have been great) and to see you do one is great. all the best buddy and hopefully you continue to do this.

Big Mike Mendez said...

thanks Travis, you'll be a guest soon, if you'd like...

TJMAC510 said...

If I'd like? I'd be honored. I've always wanted to guest star or be a guest on other blogger's podcasts (besides LAMBcast)

But yeah definitely awesome. I'm putting it under my Other Links to Check out section

First of all, I must apologize for not getting to listen to this sooner...but y'know, when one's nation is involved in a Hollywood-esque rise to the heights of hockey supremacy, one must make priorities.

Colour me impressed at this debut episode! I'd wager it comes across much better than Matineecast #1, and Lordy do you guys ever know your stuff.

I like the feel, like the flow, I even got a smile from the little applause sound effects thrown in.

ya done good Mike - time for me to go listen to episode number two.

Big Mike Mendez said...

Thanks for taking notice of the effects, just throwing in some things that make me laugh.

Glad you enjoy it, you'll be on it soon enough as well. Second episode coming soon.

To echo the Hatter's statement, I dug the applause, though I thought it was funny that you "manually" gave applause during the ending speech rather than used the sound effect again. Can't believe he forgot to thank his parents and/or significant other! And he didn't even thank you, his producing partner. The media is gonna rip him a new one.

Looking forward to more, and of course, I'm up for a guest-starring role if you'll have me.

Big Mike Mendez said...

Dude, of course, you're going to be on soon. Just have to think up a good topic for us to discuss.

And trust me, he's already heard plenty of noise for his acceptance speech.
