Podcasting has returned to Cinefessions, and it is bigger and better than ever. Instead of the solo show that used to grace this site, The Cinefessions Podcast, as it is now known, is loaded with three co-hosts: Branden, Chris Ranson, and Ashe Collins. Now, instead of just reading these guys reviews, you can listen to them! Ah, technology.
In this debut episode, the three of us discuss Spring Breakers, Harmony Korine’s divisive film that is known for it’s sexy female leads, which include Ashley Benson, Selena Gomez, Vanessa Hudgens, and Rachel Korine. James Franco also stars.
Once the show gets some more episodes under its belt, you will be able to find the show on iTunes and Stitcher. For now, you can listen to our first episode right below. If you have any questions, comments, or recommendations for any of us, please leave a comment below, or contact us on twitter, or via email at psymin1[at]yahoo[dot]com.

Branden has been a film fan since he was young, roaming the halls of Blockbuster Video, trying to find the grossest, scariest looking VHS covers to rent and watch alone in the basement. It wasn’t until recently, though, that Branden started seeking out the classics of cinema, and began to develop his true passion for the art form. Branden approaches each film with the unique perspective of having studied the art from the inside, having both a bachelor’s and master’s degree in acting. He has been a film critic since 2010, and has previously written for Inside Pulse Movies, We Love Cult, and Diehard Gamefan. His biggest achievement as a film critic, to date, has been founding Cinefessions and turning it from a personal blog to a true film website, housing hundreds of film and television reviews, and dozens of podcasts.
