Alright, I've finally done it. I've taken my love of movies, writing about movies, talking about movies, and also my love of Tom Hanks, and smashed them all together to create something really exciting.
That's right, I started a podcast! Now I know this is a deviation from your regularly scheduled content, but if you've been here since the beginning you KNOW how much I love Tom Hanks. So it only seemed natural that I'd start a podcast where I can talk all about his movies.
The show is called Talkin' Tom: A Pod Hanks Tomcast and I host it along with my friend Daniel. Twice a month we get together and watch a Tom Hanks movie, chronologically. It's funny, smart and silly, neither of us are professional film critics so it's not like we take ourselves to seriously. Basically it's an excuse for us to watch movies together, but also connect with a wider audience. We know we're not the only two people in the world to love Tom Hanks and all his movies, we're just the first two crazy people to dedicate a podcast to his entire body of work.
I can't even begin to tell you how exciting and rewarding this process has been. I feel the same way I did when I started this blog, like I once again have a new creative outlet that I can pour my heart and soul into. We got a new logo made as well as a theme song, and it all feels so real finally! I've always loved that feeling I get when an idea I have becomes a legitimate (somewhat) tangible thing. This new show has been a labor of love for me and I couldn't be happier.Read More
