Anyone out there listening to Battleship Pretension? ( http://www.battleshippretension.com
I checked them out a few weeks ago (starting with episode #1, as I usually do when I take a new podcast out for a test drive), and I've now worked my way through all 31 of their previous shows.
I really like this podcast, and my admiration has grown as they've gotten more comfortable behind the mics. I fully expect the first few episodes of any podcast to be horrible, but these guys were interesting and engaging right out of the gate. They're similar to Hollywood Saloon in that each episode features the hosts discussing a different movie-related topic, rather than reviewing films. If you're interested in checking them out, may I recommend episode #19 (about the relevance of film critics to modern movie-goers) as a great place to start? It's good stuff.

The hosts are David and Tyler, who live in Los Angeles. They have an encyclopedic knowledge regarding all types of cinema, and while I often disagree with them (they hate Fight Club and Alien 3, and they've both got hard-ons for Filmspotting), they're never less than interesting and engaging.
Consider adding these guys to your podcast rotation. They're worth your time. The latest episode (#31) is also good. It's called "Vampires vs. Werewolves."
I second Battleship pretension...it has grown to become one of my favourite podcasts.
Also surprised nobody has mentioned cinema diabolica? Its actually a very similiar podcast to Mondo movie. They do a bit too much listener feedback at times and the vote whoring can become annoying but I find the presenters absolutely hilarious
Oh and Joe, just caught your last episode about lost films.....absolutely top notch stuff.....you know your shit when it comes to the oldies
Keep it up.
