Introducing The Daley Planet Podcast!


I'm now at the age where a bunch of my friends have kids, which means that they no longer have time to go to the movies.  That sounds like a horrifying reality that I want no part of, even though I do want kids eventually.  It's a conundrum.

A few of my parent-friends (among others) have told me that they often don't listen to our Daley Screening podcast because they haven't had a chance to see the movie in question, which doesn't really make for an enjoyable listening experience.  We initially tried to combat this by doing movie news stuff at the top of each episode, but eventually it just meant that episodes were approaching two hours in length which is a tad unwieldy and perhaps a bit daunting.

Problem solved!

Introducing the Daley Planet podcast, a spin-off of our original Daley Screening podcast.  That's right, we're splitting up the podcast into two discreet branches.  The Screening will continue to discuss new releases and some old throwbacks in great spoilery detail, while the Planet will focus entirely on the latest news, rumors, casting and trailers in the world of movie magic.  We're still playing with the format a bit and working on some recurring bits to include, so if you have any suggestions (for either podcast) leave them in the comments below.

The good news is, because I don't want to pay double the web hosting fees, subscribing to our podcast feed either on iTunes or on SoundCloud will get you access to both shows as they become available.  I'm trying to work out a more routine release schedule too; since we typically record on the weekends, I'm shooting for Planet episodes to be come out on Mondays and Screening episodes to come out on Wednesdays or Thursdays.  We'll see how it works going forward.  Some weeks we might only do one show or the other, as scheduling requires.

Check out our first episode below, in which we talk about Simon Pegg writing the next Star Trek, Tom Hardy's potential replacements on Suicide Squad, and the impending resurgence of The X-Files.


Enjoy!
