A Very Good Podcast

Ten Movies at the movies: Hemal, special guest scientist Savannah Mandel and Brian discuss ‘Interstellar’ at the Smithsonian Theater.

Each season on Ten Movies we pick one actor and watch ten of their most iconic movies – one movie per episode. In theory, this leads us to startling insights about the actor, their persona, their work and what their films tell us about the dark quotidien heart of America. In practice, we spend a lot of time either complaining about bad movies or saying things like “Oh, remember that one bit with that guy who was in that show?”

This season we’re watching ten movies starring Jennifer Lopez. In previous seasons we covered Matthew McConaughey and Keanu Reeves. We discovered lots about Keanu in the course of that season. McConaughey, not so much; he remained a handsome, confident enigma, much like America itself.

We urge you to check out our past seasons, which you can find on Apple PodcastsSpotifyStitcher and wherever fine podcasts are sold. (The show was originally called “Culture Time”, so it still shows up that way sometimes.)
