It’s the 30th episode of HitchPod and we’re in a frenzy, as we cover Hitchcock’s penultimate film, Frenzy, from 1972. We discuss the joys of French cuisine, whether babies should be allowed to fly planes and the perils of imprisoning yourself in a potato truck.
Here’s episode 29 of HitchPod, featuring Number 17. Your 2 regular hosts Cat and Dan spend 43 minutes going through the dozens of things they liked about this film from a 32 year old Hitchcock. Will it be their number 1 film? No. But will it crack the top 10? Let’s call it 50-50.
What direction is this podcast heading? It’s heading North by Northwest, as Cat and Dan discuss identity confusion, reveal Batman-inspired plot hole corrections and have brief and unsettling flashbacks to Family Plot.
We know what kind of podcasts you listen to, and unless you buy us a cigar, we’re going to tell the authorities all about. Yes, it’s Blackmail from 1929. We talk about museum safety, how to set appropriate blackmailing goals and pinpoint the precise moment that Hitchcock’s genius was proven.
Back to 1936 for a movie set in 1916. We’re keeping an eye out for secret agents, who seem to be everywhere in Secret Agent. Some of the people who seem to be secret agents are secret agents. Some aren’t. Some are, but don’t want to be. Some shouldn’t be, but are. We discuss all the variants in this episode.
It’s Family Plot from 1976, Hitchcock’s final film. But not, unless something goes terribly wrong, our final podcast. In this episode, we discuss seances, millionaire bishops and the comic merits of cars with no brakes. All while sneaking in cameo name drops for our Patreon subscribers.
Dial H for HitchPod! We’re back, looking at the 1954 film Dial M For Murder. In this one, we discuss the method acting of Grace Kelly, key plot points involving keys and when we can expect a Hitchcock remake featuring Aragorn, son of Arathorn.
It’s Episode 23 and Cat and Dan are trapped in a podcast together, discussing Lifeboat. We talk about leading ladies’ underwear (or the lack thereof), livetweeting one’s shipwreck and whether or not you should let Nazi POWs take charge of your survival.
Episode 22 has us watching the second version of The Man Who Knew Too Much. We compare and contrast the films of overly knowledgable men, focusing in particular on mansplaining, fights with stuffed animals and the number of verses in Que Sera Sera.
Episode 21 is rich and strange, as we discuss Hitchcock’s early film Rich and Strange. We talk about the comic potential of shamelessly cheating on one’s spouse while on a cruise, feline cuisine and one of the darkest endings in Hitchcock’s oeuvre.
