Soundtracker

The Soundtracker Podcast will be taking a weekly deep-dive into the era of the Original Motion Picture Soundtrack. Every episode will cover one soundtrack, as well as examine the film that inspired it. A fun and unpretentious film and music discussion, which will attempt to track the history of the soundtrack, from their early days up through the 90s soundtrack boom, as well as the steady decline that followed. New episodes every Friday.

Episode 22: Reservoir Dogs


This week on Soundtracker I finally get to my first Tarantino movie, and I'm starting at the beginning. That's right, it's RESERVOIR DOGS, and I'm joined by Matt Christman (@cushbomb). In this episode, we talk about the weird way Tarantino's brain operates, call the Wet Bandits racists, and talk about the short but killer soundtrack...

Episode 21: Cruel Intentions


Today on Soundtracker I'm joined by Jason Kleeberg of The Force Five Podcast (Twitter: @forcefivepod, IG: Forcefivepodcast) to talk about CRUEL INTENTIONS, a movie I had very fond memories of and hadn't seen in at least 15 years. Did it hold up? You'll have to listen to find out. Actually, yes. Yes it did. Very much so. Still, you're here to hear us talk about the soundtrack too, and that's also included (obviously). So give it a listen...

Episode 20: Mallrats


Today I'm joined by Henry Gilbert (@hEnereyG) of the Talking Simpsons and What a Cartoon podcasts to talk about MALLRATS. In this episode we talk about a lot, from the life and death of malls and video stores, growing up in the age of physical media, Kevin Smith's career as a whole, and the movie's incredibly 90s soundtrack. So grab some chocolate covered pretzels, get your kid away from that escalator, and join us.

Bonus: "Season 1" Wrap-Up


Just as the title says, a quick year-end wrap up. In this I talk about the future of the show, what I've learned, and give thanks for the tremendous support I've received since the show's inception. Also below are a few links if anyone wants to throw a few bucks the show's way, as I said I would include in the episode. See you all January 7th with MALLRATS, and have a safe New Year's Eve!

Episode 19: The Muppet Christmas Carol (plus bonus A Muppet Family Christmas talk!)


Christmas comes early to Soundtracker. I'm releasing this episode a few days early to help get you through the long drives and/or flights during your holiday travels. For the show's first Christmas episode, it's THE MUPPET CHRISTMAS CAROL with a bonus chat about the 1987 television special A MUPPET FAMILY CHRISTMAS. I'm joined by Rachel Millman (@rachelmillman) for this episode, who appreciates the Muppets on a much deeper level than you...

Episode 18: Higher Learning


Today on Soundtracker I cover my second John Singleton movie, HIGHER LEARNING. Joining me is The Left's Premier Social Worker Maria Guido (@Sandernista412). In this episode we talk about the stellar cast, the big ideas (that don't always work), and how the movie and soundtrack are admirable when when they don't always gel.

Episode 17: Dead Presidents


Today on Soundtracker I'm joined by Chapo Trap House's Felix Biederman (@byyourlogic) to talk about the Hughes Brother's unsung classic, DEAD PRESIDENTS, which also has 2 of the best soundtracks of the 90s. During this episode we talk about the types of movies the Hugheses could be making in a world where 9/11 never happened, the stellar acting from top to bottom, the true story it was based on, and the incredible music.

Episode 16: Road House


Today me and the boys from Ruthless Reviews, Plexico Gingrich and L Ron Mexico (@Ruthlessreviews, @LRonMexico), decide to be nice (when we talk about the movie) until it's time to not be nice (when we talk about the soundtrack). It's ROAD HOUSE day here on Soundtracker, and I'm gonna be honest up front: this one is way more about the movie itself. So if you wanna hear Julius Caesar compared to Road House in a way that's actually credible, check it out...

Episode 15: Grosse Point Blank


This week I'm joined by Bobby Big Wheel (@BobbyBigWheel) to talk about the soundtrack to GROSSE POINT BLANK. In this episode we talk about how well the songs work within the film, how good of a run John Cusack had around the time it came out, and our own high school reunion experiences, which weren't nearly as cool as Martin's in the movie.

episode 14: Episode 14: The Crow


Today I'm joined by journalist Eoin Higgins (@EoinHiggins_) to talk about the landmark soundtrack for THE CROW. It's one of the albums that gets associated with the soundtrack as a concept and I'm happy to finally cover it. In this episode we talk about the film, what an absolute tragedy the death of Brandon Lee was, how big of a star he might have gone on to be, and the legendary soundtrack.
