Episode 53: The VVitch

Is anyone there? … We know that we’re extremely late with our new episode, and for the umpteenth time, we sincerely apologize to our faithful listeners. It seems like the curse of Black Phillip crossed the boundary between the silver screen and the real world, to fall upon this episode of our podcast. But after much rescheduling of the recording, laptops that broke and time that evaporated, we have finally put together something that we can call a new episode. Hopefully, this lifts the curse and sets us free to get back on track with Across the Universe. Enjoy🙂

Structure:
00:00 – 04:17 – Chick chatter
04:17 – 05:01 – Trailer
05:01 – 17:56 – Interesting Movie of the Fortnight
17:56 – 55:34 – The chicks talk about this year’s The VVitch
55:34 – 1:00:01 – Plugs and Goodbyes

Songs:
Burn the Witch, by Radiohead
Isle of Wight, by Mark Korven (The VVitch Original Soundtrack)
Across The Universe, by Vandana Vishwas

Hi guys! Long time, no see. So here’s the thing- we have been trying to record but due to our respective colleges and the work they assign us, we have not been able to make time. Hence, we thought why not do an episode on what’s been keeping us from podcasting, i.e., colleges?! So in this episode, along with Interesting Movie of the Fortnight (or rather last few months), each of us talk about our top 3 college movies. Enjoy🙂

Structure:
00:00 – 02:38 – Chick chatter
02:38 – 03:36 – Trailer
03:36 – 20:53 – Interesting Movie of the Fortnight
20:53 – 55:47 – The chicks talk about their favourite College movies
55:47 – 1:00:32 – Plugs and Goodbyes

Songs:
College, by Vampire Weekend
College Girl, by Travis Porter
Across The Universe, by Vandana Vishwas

AAAA we did it! It took us quite a while but we’re so excited that we reached this half-century mark. It’s been so fun, you guys, and thank you for being such patient and awesome listeners.

In our 50th episode (woo hoo!), the chicks take their own guest questionnaire, talk about three female-directed movies, listen to some other film bloggers list their favourite female-directed films and declare the results of the Banner Voting poll. Also, as dictated by tradition, there are some problems with the recording but let’s face it, it’s part of our charm. 50 episodes in and still getting the hang of it. Enjoy😉
