Looks like a monthly podcast discussing The Lord of the Rings with John F. Kersey.
The Video Archives Podcast with Quentin Tarantino and Roger Avary
“The iconic filmmaker teams up again with “Pulp Fiction” co-screenwriter and fellow former Video Archives coworker Roger Avary to discuss the classic collection of cult films. The duo met back in 1983 when working at the famed video rental store in Manhattan Beach, California. The long-closed shop housed close to 8,000 VHS tapes and DVDs, which Tarantino purchased in 1995, the same year he and Avary won the Oscar for Best Original Screenplay for “Pulp Fiction.”
Now, in “The Video Archives Podcast,” Tarantino and Avary rewatch the original tapes from the Video Archives collection, featuring movies like “Dark Star,” “Moon Raker,” “Demonoid,” “Messenger of Death,” and “Piranha.” The podcast launches July 19 and is produced by SiriusXM subsidiary Stitcher.”-Samantha Bergeson, “‘Video Archives Podcast’ Trailer: Quentin Tarantino and Roger Avary Rewatch Cult VHS Tapes.” IndieWire.

Employee of the Month podcast with Catie Lazarus
“We spend most of our time working, so what does it take to (mainly) love what you do? How do even the most gifted, talented, intelligent, ambitious, disciplined, imaginative, inventive, and lucky people develop their point of view, find meaning, serve a greater good, deal with workplace politics, rejection, finances, boredom, red tape, logistics, and creative roadblocks? What are the perks or what’s enjoyable about forging your own path? Catie Lazarus and her guests delve into beauty, banality, and absurdity of work, jobs, and labor.”–Employee of the Month
When do I hear about amazing people? In their obituaries, RIP Catie Lazarus.
Professional Weirdo: John L. Tenney
When my source for weird news says you’re a professional weirdo, i.e., “In the latest episode of Against Everyone with Conner Habib, Conner talks with paranormal investigator and professional weirdo John L. Tenney,” and it has the title THE PARANORMAL IS REAL & REALITY IS PARANORMAL. I’m going to have to have a listen. Bookmarking for later. Just the link, since WordPress is having trouble embedding.
Everything Is Fine Podcast
“As Gen-X women cross the Rubicon of perimenopause, they’re hungry for stories that reflect their experiences. Most OB-GYNs seem mystified by the particulars of menopause. Gwyneth Paltrow would like to Goop-ify it. Even Michelle Obama seems flummoxed by the contradictions of aging.
Enter Everything Is Fine, a new podcast co-hosted by Kim France and Tally Abecassis that nails the experience in all its highs and lows.
France, 56, has a long-running fashion and lifestyle blog called Girls of a Certain Age, and the sort of hip bona fides that only a career launched at Sassy can offer. Abecassis, 46, is a documentary filmmaker who produced the podcast First Day Back (which was featured here in 2017) and was the subject of its first season; she emailed France after reading the latter’s writing on the Cut about her time at Condé Nast (where she was the founding editor of Lucky), vanity, and dressing your age. The two women’s formidable skills as interviewers and journalists create a dynamic discussion boosted by guests like Darcey Steinke, Soraya Chemaly, Ada Calhoun, and Jane Larkworthy.
They have found themselves at the forefront of a new wave of media focused on the topic. “Somebody said to me, ‘It’s a trend,’ and I was like, ‘How could that be a trend?’ We’re here to stay,” Abecassis said. I talked to them about their podcast, ageism, women’s media, and more.-Jenni Miller, “Everything Is Fine Wants to Change How We Talk About Aging.” Vulture.com. April 17, 2020.

WFMU: Wake & Bake with Clay Pigeon
Wake & Bake is available as a podcast in case 5am–9am Eastern time in the United States doesn’t line up well with your morning.
“Beginning of a six-part fiction series about a man working completely alone aboard a spaceship bound for a new planet. His fellow passengers will remain cryogenically frozen for the 20 years it will take for the ship to reach its destination; Frank’s work is to maintain the environment and make sure all is proceeding as it should. Despite his solitude, the show is actually a dialogue between Frank and Casper, the spaceship’s AI. They have an abrasive, dependent relationship, and the progression of the series made me think a lot about where our current interactions with AI tech might lead (12m38s).”—”Hebrew, Frozen, Dark.” TheListener.co.
