February 20, 2021 - 2 min read

Here are some screenwriting and filmmaking podcasts with original descriptions where possible.


Scriptnotes is a weekly podcast where "screenwriters John August and Craig Mazin discuss screenwriting and things that are interesting to screenwriters, everything from the craft to the business to the best ways to get yourself writing."


"A podcast about the first-draft secrets of great movies. Each episode, the screenwriter behind a beloved film shares with us their initial screenplay for that movie.""

The Team Deakins

"The Team Deakins podcast is an ongoing conversation between acclaimed cinematographer Roger Deakins and James Deakins, his collaborator, about cinematography, the film business and whatever other questions are submitted. We start with a specific question and end....who knows where!"

The Next Picture Show

"Part of the Filmspotting family, The Next Picture Show is a biweekly roundtable examining how classic films inspire and inform modern movies. Hosted and produced by the former editorial team of The Dissolve – Genevieve Koski, Keith Phipps, Tasha Robinson and Scott Tobias – episodes take a deep dive into a classic film and its legacy in part one, then compare and contrast it with a modern successor in part two."

Bad Screenplays

"We’ve spent years writing screenplays that nobody wanted to make into reality, we couldn’t even find anyone to read them! So we decided to review amateur screenplays to figure out what makes a bad screenplay. Hopefully by the end of this journey we’ll be able to write a good one. Probably not." Link

On the Page

"Welcome to On the Page®, the podcast that answers all your questions about the craft and business of screenwriting.

We cover feature writing, tv writing, pitching, webisode writing, video game writing, writer branding, agents and managers, procedural writing, writing for reality, personal networking and more. "

Draft Zero

"Two emerging screenwriters – Chas Fisher and Stuart Willis – try to work out what makes great screenplays work. Discovering what it takes by analysing what successful writers put on the page — and then talking/discussing/arguing about it in a podcast."

The Treatment

"Every week, host Elvis Mitchell conducts in-depth interviews with the most innovative and influential people working in entertainment, art, and pop culture."

Light Camera Barstool

"A movie podcast for the common man by big time movie boys @JeffDLowe and @JackKennedy. We review movies, debate movies, interview people in movies and come up with some movie ideas of our own. If it's in the pictures, it's on the podcast!"

Around the Campfire podcast

"In this podcast, you’ll get a glimpse into what it’s like to write a book and be part of a writing group. Every episode, our hosts will discuss their respective novels and give each other feedback."
