Episode 0 - The Woody Allen Pages Podcast Introduction
May 11, 2021 • 4:13
Hello, welcome to the standard introductory episode of the Woody Allen Pages podcast. So much more at our website – Woody Allen Pages. Find us at: Facebook Instagram Twitter Reddit Support us Patreon Buy a poster or t-shirt at Redbubble Buy out books – The Woody Allen Film Guides Buy…
We will be looking at every Woody Allen film. It won’t be chronological – we’ll jump around from era to era, but the plan is to go through all 49 of Allen’s films. There might even be a 50th by then. We’ll do the whole thing in seasons of ten or so episodes. I have ideas for bonus episodes and hope to get the odd guest on the show down the line. We’ll do a listeners question episode if we get enough questions too.
That means for the next ten or so weeks at least, this website will be also a podcast website. We’ll still do all the regular site news as it happens. The podcast will take us into the tenth year of this website (at least)! Who’d have thought.
They are essentially audio documentaries that take a lot of time to put together. So for the first time I am going to be running a Patreon to help support both the podcast and the running of this website. After doing this alone for almost ten years, any help would be appreciated. Find out more at our Patreon page.
I cant wait for you to hear these podcasts and let me know what you think. We kick off in two weeks – keep an eye on the website and your podcast feed for updates.
