So what’s an Asian Cinema Podcasting Network? Below you’ll find out a little bit about our 8 strong lineup of shows on the Podcast On Fire Network! Click each show image to get to that particular category on the network
The show that started it all in 2007 by Stewart Sutherland. Joined by Kenny B and Mike Banner soon thereafter, the current team also consisting of Hong Kong Dave, Tom K-W and Phil G brings you (mostly) weekly observations of what’s going on on the network, discussions and that particular week’s movie of choice, whether part of a series such as Vampire Season, Jackie Chan Season or Milkyway Treasures!
Initially started out as a series of shows we were recording for Podcast on Fire, the content of the shows grew to Kaiju-size proportions and we knew we we’re onto something good! Topics covered so far includes classics out of anime such as the Studio Ghibli movies, the Kaiju genre and a retrospective on filmmaker Mamoru Oshii.
Starting out as a very silly joke by Ken, What’s Korean Cinema? is our Korean Cinema podcast, focusing on key movies deserving some love or perhaps not? Featuring a steady guest cast list of Martin Cleary (New Korean Cinema), Rufus L de Rham (VCinema/cineAWESOME) and Paul Quinn (Hangul Celluloid).
Ken started getting heavily into his Cat III persona Sleazy K and thus This Week In Sleaze was born! Featuring a informative and fun look at Hong Kong (s)exploitation through the ages, via the show we also welcomed new co-hosts King Who? (Bullets Over Chinatown) and The Great Lord Joshua Regal (Varied Celluloid)
The idea of recording our own film commentaries for various (especially slightly obscure) Hong Kong movies was very appealing. For some commentaries we looked up extensive information and for some other commentaries we just wing it and hope for the best! Our commentaries are available on MP3 and on YouTube! (The You Tube playlist for the tracks).
You know the acclaimed, classic and cult movies but now you get to know the creative mind behind them. Along with new Hong Kong Dave and Tom K-W, Kenny B examineds extensively the neglected directors of Hong Kong and Taiwanese cinema!
Taiwan cinema of largely an undocumented era gets a spotlight through the eyes and mouths of Kenny B and writer John Charles (By John Charles – Blog).
The one that started as a Two Fisted Podcast lost a limb and turned into One Armed Podcast hosted by Sylvia Rorem and Steven Hardy, a show about Asian action cinema!
