Come hear The Critics Circle on

Please join us each week for the Critics Circle! We take an in-depth look at the newest films, discuss current film news and rumors, interview a variety of filmmakers and artists, and bat around a wide variety of lively topics.

New shows are Saturdays at 3:00pm over at Radio Brave and on the TuneIn app, with rebroadcasts on Tuesday at 9:00am and Thursday at 5:00pm. You can also listen on demand via podcast at Google Play Music and iTunes.

I appear on the show about every three weeks or so since we launched in May 2016, as well as other interview and topical segments, and a fun recurring feature called Popcorn Therapy.

One of Our Favorite Moments
Critics Circle at | HFCS colleagues Travis Leamons and TJ Callahan with Margaret Bowman of Hell or High Water

Travis Leamons & TJ Callahan with Hell or High Water‘s Margaret Bowman (such a gem!)

What don’t you want!? If you don’t know, then you haven’t seen Hell or High Water, one of 2016’s most fêted films (and my personal pick for Best Picture). Here’s a fun shot of Travis Leamons and TJ Callahan the day they interviewed local hero Margaret Bowman (aka The Waitress). Ms. Bowman also attended the Houston Film Critics Society Awards Show in January, and accepted the Best Screenplay award on behalf of writer Taylor Sheridan.

If you want to relive the moment, here’s the link – but seriously, if you haven’t seen it yet, I implore you to save yourself for the movie.
