Introducing the first episode of the tentatively titled ‘The Film Inquiry Podcast’, where each episode myself (Alex Lines) will be joined by two of our writers to pick apart and discuss a different film. In our initial episode, I’m joined with Julia Smith and Alistair Ryder, who I stupidly forgot to name in the podcast episode itself. As Julia, Alistair and I were all disappointed with the 2015 indie darling Me and Earl and the Dying Girl, we talk about what exactly we didn’t like about it and try to break down who exactly the film was aimed towards. This slides into another discussion on Judd Apatow’s latest comedy, Trainwreck and how Apatow’s directing conflicts with Amy Schumer’s writing.

Due to this being our test episode, the podcast was recorded via Skype, so we must apologise for the audio quality. We are working on better audio for the next episode. But for now, please enjoy!

This episode contains spoilers for: Me and Earl and the Dying Girl and Trainwreck.

Alex is a 24 year-old West Australian who has a slight obsession with film. When he's not frowning at Australia's slack attitude towards film and film-making, he's attempting to crack into the prestigious business of show, by making amateur comedies with his friends. With his DVD collection and wealth of film knowledge in tow, Alex continues to write about film, something he knows gets the ladies.
