Cinema isn’t just about what’s on the screen – the music plays an incredibly important role, too.

Just think of the music in the likes of Star Wars or Trainspotting – and what those films would be like if their unforgettable soundtracks were removed.

The sound of the silver screen is the subject of Soundtracking With Edith Bowman.

In this unique weekly podcast, Scottish broadcaster Edith sits down with a variety of film directors, actors, producers and composers to talk about the music that inspired them.

It’s a perfect use of the podcast format, as some of the biggest names in movies talk about how they use music in their films, from their current release to key moments in their career.

The music chosen by guests is woven into the interview and used alongside clips from the films in question.

It’s been going for 134 episodes and Edith has recently been joined by Oscar-winning director of Us, Jordan Peele.

She has also featured Peter Jackson, the genius behind the Lord Of The Rings movies, and spoken to Bradley Cooper about his recent revival of A Star Is Born.

It’s all fronted by the genial Edith, who’s been broadcasting for 20 years now.

“I book all the guests, I do the interviews, then I send the audio to my friend Ben, he edits it and we put it up,” she explained.

“That’s how easy it is.”

Caliphate

Islamic State militants are the subject of this astonishing podcast which brings you as close to the terror group as is safe.

Reporter Rukmini Callimachi examines the group, from its origins to how it operates. It is informative, illuminating and, at times, upsetting.

The Ron Burgundy Podcast

Hollywood comedy star Will Ferrell reprises his role in cult movie Anchorman as the irrepressible and very silly TV personality Ron Burgundy in his own podcast.

In true Ron fashion, these conversations have a tendency to go off the rails.

He addresses important issues such as bullying and the mind-expanding nature of meditation.
