About The Popcorn Diet

Calling all Good Movie Buddies!

The Popcorn Diet is a podcast that was created to share our love of all movies. We've been dedicated, long before the podcast started, to celebrating movies of all shapes and sizes. We've always believed that every movie has the capability to be loved, and deserves a fair shake, weather it be Citizen Kane, L.A. Confidential, The Avengers, or Jean Claude Van Damme's Street Fighter. We love asking people what their favorite movie is, because there is no wrong answer, ever!

We strive to bring you a New Episode each week that covers one of the following topics:
  • Our lively conversations about latest releases
  • Debate and predictions around awards seasons
  • Discussing latest, breaking movie news
  • Miscellaneous Episodes Covering General Movie Stuff
Beyond that, we have a number of Mini-Episode series that we love to do that are now going to be made EXCLUSIVE to Patrons, including:
  • Franchise Refills - Ramping up to a new franchise entry, we take a look back at previous entries in that franchise to get us hyped for the newest installment.
  • Review Recaps - Sometimes there are more movies than we can cover, but we see them anyway. Review Recaps allow us to give you a quick two cents on on films that haven't gotten their own episode.
  • Oscar Primers - During Awards Season, it's tough for people to see all the popular contenders. Our Primers series allows us to bring you information on those flicks!
But, THIS IS TOUGH. We work full time jobs, and as much as this is a passionate project for us, it's hard to pay for the upgrades, tools, and cool stuff for you, our listeners. That's why we started a Patreon. We podcast out of a small side office at our work establishment, taught ourselves podcasting and sound design and social media skills, and we're still learning more! We want to do so much more to build this community of Good Movies Buddies into something truly special!

By having a Patreon, we're giving our users the opportunity to directly help us get bigger and better for you. By being a Patron of The Popcorn Diet you are allowing us to expanded our resources and time to provide our Good Movie Buddies with not only our regularly scheduled episodes, but also newer content we're dreaming of.

Stuff We Want to Do!

More Content! We want to desperately create more content, with plans to build up not only our podcast content, but also our reviews, articles, and website content. We have grand dreams of big projects that we've never done before, including our own audio commentaries, surprise long-form projects and a YouTube channel.

Upgraded Tools! We're extremely proud to admit that most of our sound skills were self taught. We think that for starting for nothing, the podcast is better than we could've imagined. That being said, we always want to get better. New microphones, new sound equipment and software, and new recording space are all in our planned improvements.

Good Movie Buddy Swag! We're proud of The Popcorn Diet, and we're proud to build our community of Good Movie Buddies. We want you to be able to show off your pride and rep the podcast with all kinds of merch. Rebranding is one part, but getting it out is another. We want to be able to provide stickers, patches, apparel, and more to our fans.

What's In It For YOU?

The Popcorn Diet strives to be a fun, funny, open-minded podcast all about our love of movies. Sure, we might not LOVE every movie, but odds are we'll at least give it a chance. We hope you do the same for us be becoming a Patron. Not only will you get all of our regularly scheduled episodes, but you'll gain access to other episodes that we create and produce. In the future, we hope to give our patrons the opportunity to request exclusive episode topics or commentary movies. We want to get bigger and better and we need your help to do so.

The sincerely thank you from the bottom of our movie-loving hearts for taking the time to even read this, much less become a patron. We're super excited about the endless possibilities that are in the future, and we'd love to have you be a part of it. We hope you love movies as much as we do, and we hope that you'll help us build a community where any movie can be your favorite movie free of judgement!
