Anyone interested in doing one? It was jokingly mentioned on another thread but it would be pretty cool.

It would be nice, I guess we could all watch one film and talk about it.

I would, but I probably wouldn't have much of interest to say. Might be difficult to organise as well (not just in terms of getting people 'together' to talk, but what topics to discuss etc). People on podcasts normally talk about a bunch of stuff don't they? I've only listened to the Ricky Gervais/Stephen Merchant/Karl Pilkington ones and are probably not the best ones to take examples from...

Nah, I disagree, I think you would probably be a good "villain" for the podcast.

No-one really said anything negative :P I've always thought it was a good idea. Someone suggested doing it a few years ago and I was all for it, but I think it was a bit early on for it to work. Just saying there would need to be a plan. It could always be done in 'groups' as well to get around the timezone problem, just find some people who are all available at the same time and do one, then other people can do one another time etc.

So basically I'll have an unconventional opinion on something, get slaughtered for saying it and then not give any refutes because I have no skill to do so, making me look like some idiot?

Sure I'll be down for that.

I would be up to this (though I'd have to work on my English pronunciation). I guess we could discuss the theme(s) of the month (based on what challenges we're having, for example) and such.

Same. Closest is that animated Karl Pilkington show which were highlights of a podcast series. I don't have time to listen to a few people talk for 3 hours.

I think most of podcasts audience listen to them while doing time-consuming stuff when you cannot do anything else, like cooking, doing dishes, jogging or commuting. I got hooked after a single Dan Carlin episode, he really uses the medium to its potential. Try any of his history stuff, there's an on-going WWI show that I haven't listened to yet, but both ep. 40 Radical Thoughts and ep. 42 Logical Insanity are great and can be a nice introduction.

Maybe there could be alternating ones between North American users and European users for time zone purposes. Or we could all focus on a director or a theme instead of one film (unless it's something recent). I'd be interested in this. Another friend of mine who does a podcast was trying to get me to join his podcast, but I felt kind of weird about it (nothing to say about the subjects he was covering). Anyway, maybe we could throw out a couple of ideas for each category (individual film, director, theme) and either vote for it or just agree to participate if there are two or more people interested in a certain idea.

Pretty much. I'm kind of a podcastoholic I guess. If I'm alone in the car to and from work I have two hours every day I can listen to podcasts/audiobooks. That's ten hours a week just right there, but I probably get around 20-25 hours in total every week . Chores and exercise have become very easy to do with a good podcast ready, so many times I actually look forward to that, you get things done and you're having a bit of fun/educating yourself at the same time.

Would definitely listen to an ICM podcast, and might want to participate as well. I think you could play around with different segments, in addition to director/theme/movie segments I think discussing the different lists could be fun.

I think this is a great idea. I don't think each episode has to be one long segment. I like what others have mentioned (Lilarcor above me) about different segments. Maybe have a member or pair or group of members willing to discuss some idea/theme/director/film they have some knowledge or passion about. However long that might end up being. and have a string of those segments. Maybe like 5 different segments an episode.

Probably the easiest way, I think.

Brainstorming ideas for possible episodes:

Episode 1: Lauren explains why she watches movies she knows she'll hate
Episode 2: Zeppo dissects the filmography of Dwyane "The Rock" Johnson
Episode 3: Arthur discusses why he gave up his prolific filmmaking career in 1982 to pursue his love of gif-making
Episode 4: Cheetahs never prosper -- Joachim and Local Hero take turns making surprise phone calls to suspected unscrupulous iCMers asking them to justify their platinum awards on the Silent But Not Forgotten list

I'm sure people would wanna know why Fassbinder disappeared for 20 years and have went through some reserve aging as opposed to gif-making.

Episode 4 actually sounds like the greatest thing ever. But I'd rather hear monty make those phone calls.

Monty will get his own episode where he and Kas will calmly and respectfully discuss the merits of Quentin Tarantino as a groundbreaking auteur.

That can be a season finale, with that + a Ken Russell bonus.

Haha.

I honestly think this could work but I don't know how we start it. It would take people being willing to be involved in the podcast and get it started and then hopefully it would grow from there.

What if someone made an educational podcast to begin? Teaching how to rip, how to make perfect subtitles. We could discuss things later. Then people would be more comfortable with podcasting. :shrug:
