Craig Price was already a veteran of the podcast industry with his 7-year long Reality Check Podcast when he set out with his co-host Alan Cerny to create Matinee Heroes. Together, they explore the world of movies. An episode might include a discussion on a classic film, a review of a more recent one, or how they would recast certain movies.

I am very excited to welcome Craig to my podcast. Over the course of the episode, we geek out about various movie facts. Craig also talks to me about how certain movies captured the upbringings of children from that era and how different childhood is today. We then discuss how to recast actors in classic movies and how that process works. Finally, we both discuss why we did or did not want co-hosts, and the experience of guesting on someone else’s podcast.
