A podcast that I am listening to lately is an oldie but goodie, at least I think it is. The Daily from The New York Times has some great stories I found out. This podcast has been a bright light for me the last couple of days. There has been so much going on, that this has been a welcome distraction. Listening to these stories has showed me a new light. I have only listened to a hand full of episodes so I cannot say much about it. More to come and I believe that it will be worth the download.
I must be honest; I only watch this movie two or three times, but I must say each time it was great. I think that though this movie came out in 1967, I think a lot of what happens in it applies today. Guess Who’s Coming to dinner (1967), is about someone coming to dinner who I shall say do not belong with that crowd. There is so much importance about underling racism, that it makes you question have you ever experience it. This movie stars Spencer Tracy, Sidney Poitier, Katharine Hepburn, and Katharine Houghton. The back story about how this movie was mad is even more exciting.
I must say when I first listen to this podcast almost two years ago, I did not think that this would become one of my favorite podcasts to listen to. I was at work looking for something to listen to as I was cleaning. At the time, I was into the royal family for some reason. I stumble on to Noble Blood, and I have been hooked ever since. I have learned so much that I thought I knew, but as it turns out I did not.
My favorite episode is of course episode 12 The Ice Queen, I just love that story, and I think it should be turned into a movie. I think I also like is that the episodes are not that long. That is simply perfect, and the host is perfect. Her voice is smooth and soft, but with enough power to keep you hook. I think this should be show like Drunk History was. The host is Dana Schwartz.
A lot of people do not know that I love podcast. I actually prefer to listen to them instead of music when I drive. I thought I show you some of my favorites. There will be some old ones, but they are still worth a listen.
The first one I think everyone should listen to S-town. It is about small town in Alabama, and the crazy story that was told for years, and trying to figure out if it is true. There are a lot of twist and turns along the way, but it is a great listen.
Most of these podcast can be found on apple podcast. I do not use Spotify so I can not tell you if they are there or not.
I have decided to do something different here. I am going to tell you about some movies that I think everyone should watch. I am not saying that these are great movies, but to me these are something left me thinking about them more and more after they end. I must say this is just my list.
The first movie that I want to tell you about is All about Eve (1950), this movie was a turning point for me, before this movie I never watch anything in black and white. This movie made me believe in storytelling, and how it is important to develop your characters. The very beginning you are drawn into the story without realizing it. If you are ever given a chance to watch this movie you will be happy. It is everything that we love about old Hollywood.
