Film Junk Podcast

The Film Junk Podcast is one of the longest running and highest-rated movie podcasts on the web. It’s a weekly hour-long (usually much longer) audio program that you can download in MP3 format and listen to on your computer, iPod or portable media player of choice.

Hosted by Sean, Jay and Frank (with occasional appearances from Reed Farrington), the show features funny entertainment news, heated movie reviews, and always a little bit of the unexpected.

In 2008 and 2010, we were nominated for the Podcast Awards, and in 2013, we were nominated for two Canadian Weblog Awards!

New listeners might want to start with our Greatest Hits clip show and also check out the Official Film Junk Glossary for an explanation of various people, places and inside jokes mentioned on the show.
