The Royal Canadian Movie Podcast
About This Show
Canada has great movies. But how do we find them in the onslaught from international sources? The Royal Canadian Movie Podcast is standing on guard for Canadian film. Each week co-hosts Becky Shrimpton and Cameron Maitland invite a guest to choose a Canadian film they love and want to share. We research, discuss, review, and summarize the films with wit, mirth and pith. Cam, Becky and their guests help listeners find the weird, the award winning, and the wilds of Canadian Film.

65.0 The F Word (What If...) With Hadiya Roderique
6 days ago
This week, we debate a tale as old as "When Harry Met Sally" - how can men and women be friends when there's chemistry involved. Brilliant multi-hyphenate achiever and co-host of Canadaland's Commons Podcast Hadiya (Dee) Roderique brings us the 2013 quirky rom-com The F Word (released in the States as What if...) We get confrontational this week, with mature discussions on sex, relationships, chemistry, and comedy, without getting too shouty (Okay, Becky does crack her knuckles once). We get into what banter between characters works, how to effectively use side characters, and the pleasures of tight edits. Get ready to play "Find the CN Tower " with The F Word, available on iTunes or on the disc format of your choice.
This week's end credit music is Beach Bummer by AC Newman. AC Newman is a Canadian Singer-Songwriter and his stuff is great, anthemic and totally sing-a-longable. He's also a member of the New Pornographers - and they're great too. Check out AC's work at his website.
