Cinecast Episode 256 – We Stop at Pancake Haus


Please bear with us this week on three accounts: 1) we’re recording on an off day than usual (a Sunday). 2) It’s 8am and we’re operating on very few hours of sleep from a boozy Saturday night and 3) we have some new hardware in the studio and are still working out some of the hiccups. There is a bit of ambient noise when Andrew is speaking but it’s not entirely unlistenable; just a tad annoying at moments. Beyond that it is a solid show featuring both Kurt and Andrew smack dab in the middle of their subsequent festivals: HotDocs and M-SPIFF. We have a mainstream defense piece (aka ‘indulge Kurt’s taste for cheesiness) and a lot of homework to get to. So Monday truly does suck a little less as the Cinecast can be the first part of your week. Or something. Hope you enjoy!

As always, please join the conversation by leaving your own thoughts in the comment section below and again, thanks for listening!
