Film Junk Podcast

The Film Junk Podcast is the longest running movie podcast on the web (disclaimer: that we know of).

Hosted by long-time friends Sean, Jay and Frank (with occasional appearances from Reed, Greg, Dax and many other guests), the show features sarcastic pop culture discussion, heated movie reviews, personal stories, trivia games 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.
