Unspooled is a podcast on the Earwolf network. It is hosted by Paul Scheer and film critic Amy Nicholson. Each show, which typically has a different guest, features the hosts discussing and breaking down one of the films from the AFI Top 100 occasionally with a special guest interview to add more context.[1] [2] Paul Scheer, who also hosts the movie podcast How Did This Get Made? which is about famously bad movies, announced the podcast in April 2014 in a press release stating they were looking to find out "what makes these movies so special, how they hold up in 2018, and if they truly are the best films ever made."[3] The podcast has been well-received, being named one of the best podcasts of 2018 by Thrillist, who noted "The hosts never feel preachy, and it's a great excuse to dig into some of the greatest American films ever made."[4] The Ben Hur episode of the Podcast received praise from The Hollywood Reporter, who listed it in their Top 50 Podcasts of 2018, stating it "is a delicate balance of cinematic appreciation and a full view of the classic movie canon".[5]

Format[edit | edit source]

The hosts watch then comment on the film, noting whether it deserves its spot in the AFI Top 100 movies. After discussing the film, they may talk to a guest with particular knowledge on the film or the subject matter. Vox also notes that "it’s also dedicated to placing these movies in their proper historical context, as an engaging discussion about cinematography in the (Citizen) Kane episode highlighted."[6]

Episode guide[edit | edit source]

Episodes are often chosen from the AFI Top 100 during each previous episode often by the roll of a 100-sided die.[2] The goal of the series is to cover the list in full so the remaining episodes of the series are known.
