Yeah, this Crizzlecast is definitely an emotional one.

For this episode, I talk to Pam Nelson, former copy editor for the News & Observer, grammar maven and an old colleague of mine. We discuss how she got into journalism and her wild-and-crazy college days. And, then, we get into the deaths that we've had in our family -- and that's when things get really real.

Take a listen, but you may want to have some Kleenex nearby.

Here's another "emergency" ep of the Crizzlecast for all you hungry listeners out there.

This episode has me rapping with John Munson, who runs the art-house side of Raleigh's Ambassador Cinemas. We delve into his long career playing movies at theaters. We also spend huge chunks of time venting about what's wrong with the movies (publicists, talky audiences, bad movies, etc.)

So, take a listen and I promise that, next week, the Crizzlecast will be back to its regular schedule.

I know, I know -- where the hell have I been?

To put it short, I've been going through things, which I'm sure I'll devote a whole Crizzlecast. But, until then, here's a special "emergency" episode for all my muhf***as who listen to this.

Today's ep has me talking with Toby Leonard, the all-too-cool proprietor of the Belcourt Theatre, the even-more-awesome art-house theater and performance venue, in Nashvile. We talk about how he got to run and program movies at this place as well as his visits to film fests such as Sundance and Toronto in order to see what he's gonna book in his theater.

We also discuss the time I visited the Belcourt and introduced a film there. Let's just say, according to Leonard, they still talk about to this day!

Today's Crizzlecast is special: it's the one where I have a mini-meltdown. 

Of course, I wasn't expecting to have one -- nor have it recorded for people to listen to -- but considering how things have been going for me, I decided to get some things off my chest near the end of this ep.

I guess I should also mention I spoke to film critic James Frazier for today's show. We talk about seeing films in the Iowa town where he resides, his politics and how he started Critic Speak with former Crizzlecast guest Danny Baldwin.

When we start talking about what it's like being a freelancer, that's when things get a bit too real for me. This wasn't my finest hour -- but enjoy it anyway.

Here's the deal with today's Crizzlecast.

Last fall, I interviewed Matt Zoller Seitz, film critic, TV critic, video essayist, blog founder -- whatever you wanna call him. Anyway, we discussed the differences between reviewing movies and reviewing TV, his experiences reviewing movies along with Godfrey Cheshire and Armond White, his love for Spielberg, how hectic it is writing about television these days, the death of 35mm film, seeing 48 Hours with his daughter, that time I stayed at his place during the New York Film Festival -- the whole schmeer.

Here's the problem: I had so many other things I wanted to talk with him about, but he had to cut it short because he had to go back to work. At the end of this episode, we agreed to do a second Crizzlecast. To make a long story long, it's April and that still hasn't happened.

So, here is what I'm gonna do: I'll post this episode today, and if you want to hear more, please badger and harass Matt about doing a part two with me. I'd appreciate it.

Sorry for the delay but if you listened to Tuesday's Crizzlecast, you know how things have gotten, well, unfortunate for me lately.

But I just had to drop this ep where I spoke to LA buddy Adam Villani. It starts off rather vanilla, with the former blogger discussing his life with a wife and a new baby. But then, he starts talking about black people and swimming -- and that's when the podcast really gets bugnuts crazy.

Also, in the middle of it, he discusses his experiences being a contestant on both Jeopardy! and Win Ben Stein's Money. So, there's that.

April 09, 2013 06:00 AM PDT

Yeah, things aren't going well for me these days. Thank God I have a pal like Andrew Dignan, who hasn't exactly been living the good life either, to be there for me to vent.

We spend the bulk of this Crizzlecast kvetching about how broke and unemployed we are. But it isn't all woe-is-me stories. We also reminisce about the time I went to Los Angeles and visited him for a few days. We also discuss his on-again, off-again career as a film blogger and his experiences working on a movie starring a ubiquitous, Oscar-winning movie star.

Hope you enjoy the episode -- and if you do, for the love of God, please donate to the podcast. I'm dying over here!

Rounding out Aaron Week on the Crizzlecast is a rather lively one-on-one with San Antonio film scribe/video essayist Aaron Aradillas.

We talk about how he started out interviewing film critics, how he sees movies with limited vision and what's it like seeing films in the Lone Star State. We also get into some weird territory when he recalls how much he loathed an African-American linguistics teacher back in college.

He also tears Jeffrey Wells a new one. Enjoy.

Hey, I've spent weeks talking to guys named Kenji and Dan. Now, it's time to spend a week talking to a couple of guys named Aaron.

First up is Aaron Hillis, a well-known film critic and writer who knows a thing or two about distributing and programming movies. We talk about his new hustle as owner and proprietor of New York video store Video Free Brooklyn, as well as discuss his days distributing indie films through Benten Films

We also discuss what exactly are mumblecore films -- and I don't know if we figured it out. Take a listen and see if we did.

I once again holla at an old, high-school chum for today's Crizzlecast.

I actually Skype all the way to Argentina to talk to Paula Lifschitz, a former classmate of mine who is now based in her Buenos Aires homeland. We talk about our former teenage selves as well as the rocky road she traveled to get to where she is today. We also discuss her career as a burgeoning artist.

We also break down the differences between England and France that I hope my listeners over there (yes, I do have international listenere) will not take offense to.
