Episode 1:The Academy Awards

As The Filmsmith continues to evolve (different appearance, regular postings), the podcast is our latest endeavor.  Spearheaded by Scott Molling, this is the first episode of what will hopefully become a weekly discussion of film-related matters.  We’ll also inform you of when the show is available on iTunes (hopefully this week).
