The best podcasts for Discussing Movies Old & New

Who am I?

Back To The Blockbuster consists of two hosts, Gaius Bolling and Jackson Pye. Gaius is an entertainment journalist and film and TV influencer on Instagram, with over 112K followers, currently writing for CBR (Comic Book Resources), Movieweb, That Hashtag Show, and Geek Vibes Nation. Jackson is from Canada and joins our show remotely. He's a big fan but a more casual moviegoer who comes to our topics from a less professional angle and is very much the voice of the audience. We also have a bi-weekly spin-off called Back To The Blockbuster Presents: Deep Dives where we dive into different films across different genres with a rotating line-up of special guests, usually showcasing other podcasts and fellow movie fans! I choose it because this has been in my life for as long as I can remember. I've been a lifelong movie fan and attended Los Angeles Family Academy for its screenwriting and editing program. I eventually pivoted to entertainment journalism and have since made my living writing about what I love: film and TV. I have a vast knowledge of the industry but I don't pretend like I know everything. There is continuously more for me to discover so I never condescend to the audience that is listening to us. I try to make the conversation fun with my fellow co-hosts and, through listening to other shows on this platform, I learn even more from how they're tackling these topics as well.

My Show

What is my podcast about and/or how does it relate to the playlist topic you chose?

Back To The Blockbuster breaks down the latest in film and TV news but from a very fun perspective. I use my industry knowledge to provide insight into the topics but I keep it light and fun with my co-hosts who attack the topics from a more casual perspective. The duality of how we approach the news is what makes the show fun for listeners. We also do milestone movie anniversaries on the show to mix things up a bit with the news. On the Deep Dive Spinoff, for listeners that are more interested in movie review style shows, we got you covered as we each choose a film bi-weekly to dive into in an informative but fun way. Through both shows, we feel like listeners get the best of both worlds.

What is my podcast playlist about?

I think our playlist shows a nice mix of what our show represents through how differently other shows might tackle similar topics. We're also inspired by a lot of the shows on this playlist and think they're some of the best to be doing this on the platform so that's why we think other listeners who listen to us should also give these amazing shows a chance as well.
