It’s a new year, and The Skinny has something new and exciting to share with you! It’s our new podcast, and it’s called The Cineskinny!

The Cineskinny podcast looks at the wide world of The Movies through The Skinny's cross-cultural lens. We’ll be discussing old films, new films, good films, bad films, the places we watch films, and why we love them so. 

The Cineskinny is hosted by a trio of The Skinny’s finest editors:

Jamie Dunn, our Film Editor, who you may also have heard on BBC Radio Scotland’s Afternoon Show, or read in Sight & Sound, IndieWire or The Guardian

Anahit Behrooz, our Listings, Heads Up and Zap Editor, and a regular contributor to our Film section. Anahit’s film writing has also featured in The Quietus, Girls on Tops, One Room With A View and Little White Lies.

Peter Simpson, our Digital Editor. Big film fan, lots of enthusiasm and energy, and also responsible for the magazine’s Food and Drink pages if that helps at all. 

New episodes of The Cineskinny podcast are released every fortnight; listen in the player below.

Latest Episode

We discuss the very good multiverse movie Everything Everywhere All At Once, the substantially less-good multiverse movie Doctor Strange and the Multiverse of Madness, and the not-multiverse-but-still-excellent movie Benediction.

We also talk about the excellent Glasgow filmmaker James Price, and talk through the philosophical implications of the multiverse. Ignore them at your peril, The Cineskinny will get you.


Benediction (09:50)
Doctor Strange (22:10)
Everything Everywhere... (36:55)
The Multiverse: What Is The Point of It? (48:10)
