Hello Unleash the Fanboy readers!
I’m Caleb and this is the Cut To: Podcast. We’ve teamed up with UTF to host our podcast on the site, mostly for the purposes of people actually listening to it. Why? Who are we? What is Cut To:? Let me tell you a little about it.
I come from a film blogging background as well as podcasting. I used to write for MovieViral.com, which was sold and is now a former shell of itself. I used to be a part of a podcast where we would review anime, but I was just there for fun. Connor was also on the team at MovieViral at the end, but he’s had review columns in community newspapers and writes for his college’s newspaper. We both created Cut To: because we’re very opinionated and wanted an outlet other than Twitter to express those ideas.
The main selling point of this podcast is that there are no cuts, which is somewhat strange given the name. While we envisioned Cut To: Podcast as a pop culture show, it is mostly a film review podcast. We actually retooled it three times before settling on the current, no-cutting, what-ever-happens-will style. We think that both UTF and Cut To: are similar since they’re geek-centric and are filled with a hell of a lot of snark. By joining forces, you get all of that jumbled together into the ultimate snarky, geeky product which is sure to piss you off at some point, but we hope you’ll enjoy nonetheless. And hey, if you disagree with someone one of us or one of our guests says, please feel free to let us know on Twitter or in the comments!
We thought the first episode that we would want hosted on the site should be current and topical, so we spent 40 minutes discussing the DC presentation at San Diego Comic-Con earlier today. Connor and I are huge DC fans (Connor more so a Superman fan and me a Batman fan) who are incredibly excited for Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, and we sat down with Josh Costella to chat about the new trailer and all the rest of it. But hey, enough rambling – you should probably listen to this podcast. We hope you love it and we’ll see you next week.
[EDITOR’S NOTE: Ha! ‘Enough rambling’ – pfft. I’ve known these guys for a long time and trust me when I say it, they’re good and this podcast is good. I’m not just saying that because I have to, either, although admittedly that’s about 83% of it. Cut To: is a lot like UTF, so if you love UTF (as unlikely as that may be) then you’re sure to love this. You know why it’s awesome? I’ve been a guest on it. I’m not gonna say which episode, either, so you’ll just have to go back and watch every single one to listen out for me. Granted, my audio was terrible and it was an embarrassing moment for me that I wish I had done better, but at least I can say I’ve been an official podcast guest. Anyway, here we go – the Cut To: podcast. No more rambling. Promise.]
