A podcast that tells stories behind films, one movie at a time: meet our final podcast recommendation of the year – Verbal Diorama.
A confession from the off: the person who writes this podcast recommendation column, Em, isn’t writing this one. She’s spent all year on the Film Stories site pushing the work of others, and trying to shine light on other people’s podcasts. Now it’s her turn in the spotlight though. And it’s long overdue.
For what she’s neglected to tell you over the past year (and beyond) is that her podcast, Verbal Diorama, is a real treat for movie lovers. That each episode, she pours her heart and soul into digging up the story behind a movie. She then condenses what’s clearly a large chunk of research into a really engaging hour or so of chatter about the film in question, where she also brings in opinions and viewpoints that she’s sought elsewhere.
Her delivery bubbles with enthusiasm, her podcast is evidence of the warmth she goes out of her way to show others. And at the heart of it all is a podcast that’s a treat to listen to, and really easy to recommend. It’s got one hell of a theme tune too.
She occasionally brings in a guest, and the mix of films she chooses dives between high profile hits to slightly offbeat choices. Each episode offers a winning mix of some stuff you know and likely some stuff you don’t. All presented by one of the kindness podcasters around.
If you’re looking for a podcast to tell the stories of the movies? Well, this sounds like a job for Verbal Diorama…
Em will return with this column in 2021. She is unaware of this extra column to round off 2020, so don’t tell her. Our secret.
