39 Steps in the right direction

I’m once more a guest on Good Evening, the excellent Alfred Hitchcock-themed podcast, which is looking at all the Master’s films in sequence, a process I can personally recommend. Here’s the link to our discussion on THE 39 STEPS. Big thanks to my hosts, Brandon Shea-Mutala and Chris Haigh, and fellow guest Alice Baker.

My previous appearance, weighing in on BLACKMAIL, is here. You can also read my thoughts on T39S here (for my Hitchcock Year) and here (for Criterion).

And a reminder that Fiona & I’s podcast, The Shadowcast, has its latest edition here.

The Sunday Intertitle: Knife!

I took part in Good Evening, an Alfred Hitchcock Podcast recently, but I forgot to tell you guys. The podcasters Tom Caldwell, Chris Haigh and Brandon-Shea Mutala are doing what I did nine (!) years ago, working their way through all of Alfred Hitchcock’s films, and they kindly invited me to join them in a discussion of both sound and silent versions of BLACKMAIL. I had a lot of fun and hope to take part again if they’ll have me.

You can listen here. My original blog post from Hitchcock Year is here.

Fiona thinks we should podcast together. Any takers?
