About This Show
The Cinephiliacs is a podcast exploring the past and future of cinephelia. Film critic Peter Labuza has interviewed critics, programmers, academics, filmmakers, and more about their relationship to film and film culture. Additionally, each guest will bring in a particular favorite film and discuss it with Labuza.

Very Good Podcast
The Cinephiliacs is a very good podcast that should be enjoyable to anyone who is a cinephile or anyone interested is criticism/analysis. The show is well structured, the host is competent and the guest are interesting. The audio quality could be improved. The host and some of the younger guests tend to pepper their speech with useless words: um, kind of, sort of, like, uh, just, you know, sounding pretty unsure and in a way lacking confidence type of stuff and not "quote" speaking with conviction. It irritates me. It may not even register for others.
Overall a good show. I will continue to listen to and I hope it gets better.
