13 Must-Listen Podcast Episodes from March 2017

31 March 2017 10:35 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Another quality month in the world of podcasts has come and gone. An industry titan made a reappearance in a surprising way. Daily shows continue to grow in quality and their ability to react to an ever-shrinking news cycle. The level and style of reporting has never been more boundary-pushing, making for a veritable bounty of returning shows and new favorites. We’ve gathered some of our favorites from the month (here are our picks from January and February and all of 2016 if you’re new to these) to help you keep up with the growing crop.

Awful Grace, “205 – bababadalgharaghtakamminarronnkonnbronnton-nerronntuonnthunntrovarrhounawnskawntoohoohoordenenthurnuk! (regarding The Fall)”

Robert Andersson’s Chicago-produced audio essays are keen observations, largely by virtue of placing their subjects at the forefront. By getting out of the way, this episode gives a voice to a city, a neighborhood and a reporter. An evening ride-along with a journalist responding to news »

Ansel Elgort's "City of Stars" Cover Is Definitely La La Land-Worthy

21 March 2017 1:15 PM, PDT | POPSUGAR | See recent BuzzSugar news »

Ansel Elgort is a modern-day Renaissance man. A skilled actor (you can see him next in Baby Driver) and devoted Knicks fan, Elgort is a fellow of many interests. When he's not creating sexy music videos with his girlfriend, he's covering musical hits and sharing them on Instagram. Case in point: on Tuesday, he posted a video of himself playing the piano and singing to "City of Stars" from La La Land. He's no Ryan Gosling, but he definitely does the song justice. Little cover "City of Stars" from La La Land. A post shared by Ansel Elgort (@ansel) on Mar 21, 2017 at 11:33am Pdt »

George W. Bush Puts the Omg in Om: That Time He Got Kicked Out of a Yoga Class

4 March 2017 12:05 PM, PST | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

George W. Bush‘s post-presidency has seen him take up painting, pound a mountain bike with military men and women half his age, become a doting grandpa, and champion the interests of America’s wounded warriors with the same passion he shows for helping Muslim women and girls overseas reach their leadership potential.

Now, in a recent at-home interview with People, Laura Bush reveals that her husband is even more of a Renaissance man than we knew and can be found not only in his art studio — but on a yoga mat.

The former first lady says she and the »

Review: "Arrival" (2016) Starring Amy Adams And Jeremy Renner; Special Edition Blu-ray/DVD/Digital Format

24 February 2017 5:45 PM, PST | Cinemaretro.com | See recent CinemaRetro news »

By Lee Pfeiffer

When it comes to sci-fi films I will admit that I'm generally turned off by plots that involve peace-loving aliens who come to earth to help us lead better lives. I'd much rather have some insidious creatures with ray guns who are seemingly invulnerable as they try to pulverize mankind. Steven Spielberg's "Close Encounters of the Third Kind" and "E.T." were certainly landmark films with much to admire about them, but I'm generally more in the mood to watch his terrific remake of "War of the Worlds" in which we learned that if demonic aliens are to take on humanity, they apparently are going to start the attack in Bayonne, New Jersey.  Director Denis Villeneuve's acclaimed Oscar-nominated film "Arrival" manages to convey enough ambiguity about the motives of visiting aliens to build genuine suspense. The film is the latest in a long line that refreshingly »

Berlin Film Review: ‘Monsieur Mayonnaise’

22 February 2017 2:04 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Indefatigable Australian filmmaker-artist Philippe Mora criss-crosses the globe tracing his family’s survival during the Holocaust in Trevor Graham’s ingredient-heavy documentary “Monsieur Mayonnaise.” Revisiting some of the material Mora himself used in last year’s “Three Days in Auschwitz,” the film is a frequently fascinating if over-egged affair in which the French-born subject storyboards a personal graphic novel while recounting the remarkable story of his German-Jewish father’s work for the French Resistance and his French-Jewish mother’s miraculous escape from the gas chambers. Unnecessarily structured as a tongue-in-cheek mystery with Mora himself in the guise of a film noir detective, “Monsieur Mayonnaise” is nevertheless an eye-catching, engrossing romp sure to play well in the art house equivalent of the Borscht Belt.

Philippe’s father Georges Mora, born Gunter Morawski in Leipzig, received his nickname “Monsieur Mayonnaise” during WWII, but not everyone knew where the moniker came from. As »

Sam Harris says Trump ‘like Chauncey Gardiner’s evil twin’ on Real Time with Bill Maher

4 February 2017 10:37 AM, PST | Monsters and Critics | See recent Monsters and Critics news »

Last night’s Real Time with Bill Maher examined the vexing problem so many Americans wrestle with: How many Muslim refugees are a comfortable amount and if they bring their laws, fundamentalist aspects of their religion and customs with them, will there be an all out war over this? The guests were neuroscientist and author Sam Harris, former Army intelligence officer Jason Kander, Gop vlogger Tomi Lahren, Gop strategist-turned-journalist Rick Wilson and Michael Eric Dyson. Sam Harris opened the show and talked about the tricky issues of navigating president Donald Trump’s bellicose handling of the issue and how we as a...read more »

NCIS: New Orleans Season 3 Episode 12 Review: Hell on High Water

24 January 2017 10:56 PM, PST | TVfanatic | See recent TVfanatic news »

The newest incarnation of NCIS: New Orleans is hardly a well-oiled machine.

Maybe that lack of lubrication can account for how noisy it was on NCIS: New Orleans Season 3 Episode 12.

Now that half of the season is gone, Gregorio is finally, officially a team member.

For better or worse.

Based on the comments made on this site, most viewers seem to have the latter opinion.

I'm going to go with the former.

Yes, Gregorio is an acquired taste.

The producers set out to create the anti-Brody and they succeeded, maybe too well.

She began as that caricature – the pushy, know-it-all federal agent. But she's been softened up, once more of her back story was known.

An abandoned wife who fled N'Awlins in shame, but who finally stopped running. 

A tight-laced bureaucrat who learned to learn the looser pace of the Big Easy.

She can even smile and laugh on occasion. »

President Obama just commuted Chelsea Manning's sentence and she will be freed in May ... the White House announced Tuesday. Chelsea Manning -- a former Army intelligence officer who leaked classified information to WikiLeaks -- was convicted back in 2013, and sentenced to 35 years in prison. Obama's commutation means she'll be out May 17, after just 7 years served. Manning, a transgender woman, attempted suicide twice while in prison. WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange said last week he would agree to extradition to the U. »

How WikiLeaks Founder Julian Assange Went from Enemy to Embrace With Some in the Gop

5 January 2017 3:40 PM, PST | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

From Capitol Hill to Donald Trump’s Twitter feed, cyber-security is all the buzz this week, thanks to WikiLeaks, a self-described non-profit media organization that publishes leaked documents, news and classified information from anonymous sources. The man behind Wikileaks is Julian Assange and, although he’s been under fierce fire from American political leaders in the recent past, a few are warming up to him — starting with President-elect Trump, who once went so far as to say Assange should face “the death penalty or something” for his crimes.

Who is Julian Assange?

Assange is the Australian leader (and alleged founder) of WikiLeaks. »
