List of Best Podcasts about Film History
  1. A biweekly roundtable by the former editorial team of The Dissolve examining how classic films inspire and inform modern movies. Episodes take a deep dive into a classic film and its legacy in the first half, then compare and contrast that film with a modern successor in the second. Hosted and produced by Genevieve Koski, Keith Phipps, Tasha Robinson and Scott Tobias. Part of the Filmspotting family of podcasts.
  2. Paul Scheer is a lifelong movie buff, but he's never seen many of the all time greats. On Unspooled, his team-up with film critic Amy Nicholson, he's remedying that by watching the AFI's top 100 movies of all time, to find out what makes classics like Citizen Kane and Taxi Driver so special. Paul & Amy will dissect iconic scenes, talk to artists and industry experts, and discover just how these films got made.
  3. The Soundtrack Show is a weekly look at film scores and soundtracks for some of the most popular movies, TV Shows, Video Games and Theater pieces of all time.
  4. ONE HEAT MINUTE PRODUCTIONS began with film journalist Blake Howard examining Michael Mann's 1995 crime opus HEATchronologically, in 60-second increments, in the aptly titled "One HEAT Minute." After more than 170 episodes the finale featured the legendary mastermind director, screenwriter and producer behind the film Michael Mann. Now, the feed is occupied by similarly obsessed examinations like: THE LAST (12 minutes) OF THE MOHICANS is a twelve-episode limited podcast series focusing on the climax of the Michael Mann's 1992 epic The Last of the Mohicans. (Completed) INCREMENT VICE is the podcast that explores Paul Thomas Anderson's INHERENT VICE one scene at a time, with host Travis Woods (Weekly on Fridays) ALL THE PRESIDENT's MINUTES is a podcast where conversations about movies, journalism, politics and history meet. Each show we use the seminal and increasingly prescient 1976 film All The President's Men as a portal, to engage with the themes and the warnings of the film resonating since its release. (Three times a week) #ConTENgen: In a world changed by COVID-19, every day, this podcast will be reaching out to talk movies and maintain connections; in less ten minutes or less. (Daily). JOSIE AND THE PODCATS is a limited podcast series diving into the history, the production, the music, the legacy, and the fandom surrounding the 2001 cult classic Josie and the Pussycats. From the stars and creators to the obsessive fans, DuJour means this show is a must-listen for all Josie diehards, hosted by Maria Lewis.

  5. Doc Rotten and The Black Saint recap and review The best and worst horror movies from the 1970s. Grindhouse. Blacksploitation. Hollywood Blockbusters. B Movies. Films like Exorcist | The Car | Phantasm | Halloween | The Incredible Melting Man | The Manitou | Jaws| Vampire Circus | Dawn of the Dead | The Omen
  6. From the creators of Inside Psycho, Inside the Exorcist, and Inside Jaws, comes a new immersive audio biopic about the making of the original 1977 Star Wars. It was a movie made on a shoestring and dumped into a handful of movie theaters. And then it changed the world. This is the story of George Lucas and his dream. We take you inside the stories of the people who struggled to make the original classic and the people who did their very best to stop it dead. Now playing in all galaxies.
  7. A deep dive into the mysterious and peculiar happenings that occurred during the filming of the legendary film Psycho. Mark Ramsey Media and Wondery create a magical mix of fact and fiction which transports you into the world of Hitchcock. Psycho is among the greatest thrillers in movie history--and it nearly didn't happen!
  8. In 1973 Hell came home and invaded the body of a young girl. This is the story of a movie and its makers. It's a tale of dark and light, of loss and love. A story of faith and fury, of causes and curses, of horrors real and imagined, of unbridled ego and brute force filmmaking. It's the movie critics called "religious pornography" and "occultist claptrap." The movie that left audiences...hysterical. Decades later, it remains perhaps the most frightening movie we will ever see. From Wondery, this is a seven-part deep dive inspired by the story behind an unforgettable, classic movie. This is...Inside The Exorcist.
  9. The Projection Booth has been recognized as a premier film podcast by The Washington Post, The A.V. Club, IndieWire, Entertainment Weekly, and Filmmaker Magazine.

  10. We've all seen the movies that claim to be 'based on a true story', but have you ever wondered how historically accurate they are? That's what we'll aim to find out as we compare Hollywood with history.
