February 26, 2016 / by , / 0 Comment

The National Podcast is back with its Oscar Mega-Preview and our first guest, Caroline Siede! You can subscribe to the show on iTunes or Stitcher, and/or stream it on SoundCloud as well.

On episode 4 of the National Podcast, Jon is joined by Caroline Siede (contributor to the A.V. Club, Boing Boing, Quartz, and co-host of the “Debating Doctor Who” Podcast) to talk all things Oscar. They discuss #OscarSoWhite, expectations for Chris Rock (8:50), and OG Aunt Viv v. Will Smith. Caroline and Jon also recommend movies that they feel did not get proper Oscar attention (18:00), before beginning “Should Win/Will Win” (23:00), breaking down all of the major contenders, figuring out how to pronounce Saoirse, and pledging their undying allegiance to “Mad Max: Fury Road”.

As always thanks for listening, and let us know if you have any suggestions or requests for future shows in the comments below!
