Online podcasts have become essential listening over the past decade, and have expanded to include many diverse subjects and panelists. In this post we list some of our favorite podcasts involving design and film-related conversations:

You Must Remember This

The Business is a weekly podcast featuring lively banter about entertainment industry news and in-depth interviews with directors, producers, writers and actors.

Every week, host Elvis Mitchell conducts in-depth interviews with the most innovative and influential people working in entertainment, art, and pop culture. The most interesting person to appear on the show, however, is perhaps Mitchell himself — a serious scholar of film history and popular culture.
