Fresh from today's big announcement, here it is boys and girls, "Episode 1: There Will Be Podcast," as promised! Trent and I decided to kick things off with a review of one of the most anticipated films of the year, "The Master," directed by Paul Thomas Anderson. (You can read my review here.) This was a perfect fit for our main discussion of the best film directors in the world today.

Please keep in mind this is the first episode. Trent and I are convinced it can only get better, and hopefully more succinct, from here on out. Onward and upward, right? I must admit, I get rather garrulous during the review of "The Master." It was painful to listen to myself. Why am I telling you this? Enjoy the show and please feel free to comment below. We would love to hear your take on any of the topics and suggestions for improvement would be mightily appreciated.

Without further ado, here is the first episode of The Film Tome Podcast! Feel free to listen to it directly from the player below or you can download it to take with you by right clicking on the "Audio MP3"  button and selecting "Save Link As...".

P.S. You can take the "Who Wrote It: Terrence Malick or Stephanie Meyer?" quiz that I threw upon Trent during the Feature Presentation segment here.
