The LF #34: Reading beyond the lines

What was the last book or comic you read? How long has it been? For some it was last week, but for others it's a distant memory! Increasingly, technology is affecting the way we consume all forms of media and prose is no exception.

In this, the last in our mini-series which discusses how we consume different types of media, we take a look at books & comics. Everything from Kindles to iPads, Comics apps to Audio Books and why we might (or might not) prefer the real thing.

Also in this episode: Bernice is back and she's been binge watching Orange is the New Black. TeeJ is back he's also been binge watching Miami Vice. Yes, that's right the 80s TV series! And Denis-Jose has been following True Detective. 

Stay tuned at the end of the episode for details of Under the Fang!

Listen!

The LF #33: (Next) Saturday night at the movies

A night at the movies. What does that mean to you? What will it mean in the future? On this episode of the LF we continue our look at the present and future of how we consume our favourite fiction. This time, it's all about going to the cinema... or theater... or movies...

We also take a look at some more TV series we've been catching up on: Denis has been binge watching Arrow, Gavin has been watching The Wire, Dan has been catching up with Boardwalk Empire and Imran is finally on the Breaking Bad bandwagon.

All this and a rant about buying snacks at the cinema too!

Listen!

THE LF #32: Don't Adjust Your Sets

What's on TV? It used to be such an easy question to answer, but these days, it's not so straight forward. First you have to ask "What is TV?" Increasingly, it's actually another device, not necessarily even in the home.

iPlayer, Netflix, Lovefilm, youTube even illegal downloads. As many people consider these things television as there are those still tied to the traditional box with antenna.

Continuing our series where we muse on the future of consumer media and programming, this month we turn our attention to the little screen and ask where are we now and where are we going? What is the future of TV Broadcasting?

What are our Favourite TV Shows? Is TV a better deal than the cinema right now? How many episodes of show can someone binge watch in one sitting?

Also in this episode, Imran is curious about both Beyonce and Pharrell Williams. Denis-Jose went to see the Desolation of Smaug and our newest guest Tee-J introduces the old gang to two new TV Shows (for them): Banshee and Archer.

And how do we really feel about Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D?

The LF #31: Musing on... Music

They way we listen, buy and create media - music, films, comics and books - is constantly changing, but never more so than in the last decade. CDs, DVDs, MP3s, eBooks, Streaming everything...

Hardly anything is the same as it was even 5 years ago and we find ourselves asking "where are we, how did we get here and where to next?"

Starting with this episode, we decided to muse over these questions and more, starting with music.

in this discussion we look at everything from discovery services to the fall and rise (again) of vinyl.

We also have a chat about Only God Forgives (and other recent Ryan Gosling films), Breaking Bad, The DC comics parade of fancy cover specials and ask the question: "Will Ben Affleck make a good Batman?"

Listen!

The LF #30 - The Sound of Movies

Movies are arguably the most visually appealing storytelling medium, but as we've known for decades, their attraction is severely diminised without sound. And what is a soundtrack without music? Well, just a bunch of noises, right?

In this episode of the Liberation Frequency, we are taking our first look at movie soundtracks. Which ones are the most memorable? Which ones are our favourites? Can a soundtrack make or break a movie... or an artist?

With this being our first Podcast in a while, we also have a lot of regular stuff to catch up, including the first wave of summer blockbusters. Star Trek: Into Darkness, Iron Man 3, World War Z.

All those... and The Book of Mormon!

Note: It took us ages to edit this episode as it contains lots of music. So apologies if it's a bit later than the studio chat would suggest. It also contains SPOILERS! You have been warned!
