  • So, so good…

    I love these interviews. I love Kevin. He knows this business and has a wealth of information yet remains genuinely fascinated by it. I’m instantly engaged by his curiosity and charm. He’s open and earnest and respectful but dives deep. And you know these are friends. Feels like eavesdropping on a really great dinner conversation.

  • Perfect For Film Buffs

    After reading Kevin’s book, I tried his podcast and I’m hooked. As a film fanatic, I’m interested in the behind the scenes stories about filmmaking. This podcast is great! With a casual, conversational style, Kevin talks to the biggest players in Hollywood. Their stories and insight are truly illuminating. It’s fun to hear directors and producers talk about their projects years after the fact, with some hindsight, rather than the typical interviews that happen during a press junket.

  • Terrific Podcast Series for Movie Buffs

    Conversations with luminaries who have made it big in Hollywood are truly engaging. I loved listening to Graham King talk about showing Bohemian Rhapsody to Freddie Mercury’s sister, Andy Marx on going through the archives of his grandfather, Groucho’s TV show and director/producer David Leitch’s early career as a stunt double for Brad Pitt. Kevin Goetz is a talented interviewer and it’s fun to get a glimpse into the world of movie test screenings. I’m hooked!
