January 8, 2018

The First Word Podcast

Tune in now to our second episode of The First Word podcast, a brand new podcast from FirstShowing. Friends Alex Billington (@firstshowing) and Mike Eisenberg (@Eisentower30) team up to bring you a podcast providing in-depth discussion, analysis, and interviews about the latest movies, and some old ones too. For this episode, we decided to do a recap of 2017 and discuss our Top 10 Movies of 2017. We both go back and forth counting down our Top 10 with brief commentary on each. At the end, we talk with our guest, fellow film lover Alicia Malone, and discuss her Top 10 for another unique perspective. In addition to these recaps, we also discuss some of our most anticipated films of 2018. We hope this gives everyone a chance to get to know us better and hear about all of our favorites before we get into 2018. Listen in below.

Ha! Well, we wanted to provide timestamps, but I also wasn't sure if I should list the names or just the #! Because it is all about the reveal, right? I hope you enjoy listening anyway.
