R.I.P CineCultania Podcast

I have decided to bring CineCultania Podcast to a proper end. Medical bills, tech issues, time constraints & the lack of a steady co-host have forced me to reconsider my attempts to keep it alive. Unfortunately the back episodes will no longer be on any server. It's all over.

Thanks to everyone who supported us along the way, it was a great time while it lasted.
I hope to continue chatting to everyone through Twitter, the Palavr forums, & through the feedback of a variety of excellent podcasts such as The Gentlemen's Guide to Midnight Cinema, Outside The Cinema, ShowShow, Chinstroker Vs Punter, Boxcutters, Night of the Living Podcast, Girl's On Film & Mondo Movie.

Thanks again, it's meant a lot to me.

27 October, 2010


In which CineCultania makes a less than dramatic or sober return to dual host podcasting! Ben returns with new co-host Drew. It's a bit of a mess, not helped by Roger Christian's Starship (AKA Lorca & The Outlaws AKA 2084), as Drew adjusts to hearing his voice & Ben struggles with lounge room recording on an EeePC with multiple headset adapters. This is the future folks, enjoy!

WARNING: MAY CONTAIN LOST RELATED SPOILERS (which Drew claims are not spoilers due to the revelations sucking)

Bonus Interview! Andrew O'Neill: Occult Comedian

In which Alex & Ben interview Andrew O'Neill, occult comedian, ex-film student, & all-round engaging & funny guy from the UK. A passion for Terry Gilliam is aroused, Alan Moore's gargoyles are discussed, & Andrew reveals the power of ritual magic in comedy.

10 April, 2010


In which Alex & Ben take a walk on the lighter side of life with Nadia Tass' The Big Steal (1990) & Richard Benjamin's Marci X (2003). Yes, we are taking it easy on Alex, & she is putting Ben through the ringer with Lisa Kudrow & Damon Wayans. They keep it real, bringing the same forceful retardation to comedy as they do to horror & whacked out cinema. Or something.
