HARD OUT is a 60-minute ticking time bomb of a podcast hosted by Them Thorntons (Chris and Jay Thornton, professional screenwriters and filmmakers of the indie feature Cactus Jack and authors of the dark fantasy novel series Reapers). Aptly named, each and every episode abruptly ends at the 60-minute mark—no matter what's going down as the buzzer sounds! The show includes several subseries, to include "Hard Out: My Favorite Movie "(in which we have a guest or guests on to geek out over their all-time favorite film) and "Hard Out: Cinephiliacs," where we do in-house double feature deep dives or have on guests to postulate over a picture. Video episodes on YouTube, "Hard Out Them Thorntons."

Breaking Out of Breaking In

Breaking Out of Breaking In, created by Bri Castellini and Christina Raia, is a practical, pragmatic filmmaking and storyteller podcast about taking your creative destiny into your own hands, reframing what it takes and means to “break in” to a fundamentally broken industry, and making work that gets seen without playing the Hollywood game (or at least, while changing the rules). Each episode explores a particular subject interrogated and researched by the hosts to turn an obstacle or limitation into an opportunity for listeners, or a conversation with a guest who shares exactly how they broke out, broke in, or circumvented things entirely to define success for themselves.
