The Black Case Diaries Movie/TV Podcast

The Black Case Diaries is a movie discussion-based podcast hosted by three friends in Central Ohio. Marci, Adam, and Robin are movie and TV enthusiasts, using this podcast to distract themselves from the crushing weight of early adulthood.

Fresh out the box. Stop, look and watch. Are you ready yet? Get set, it's ALL THAT!

Happy Thursday, Cassettes! For this week's episode, we traveled back to the mid-90s to talk about our favorite children's sketch comedy show. Premiering in 1994, All That was a staple on the SNICK line-up. Billed as the "SNL for Kids," it delivered iconic sketches such as "Good Burger," "Everyday French with Pierre Escargot," and "Vital Information."

Grab a bag of chips and join us as we discuss the history of the original and what we love about the revival.

It's the final episode of June Tunes and we decided to focus on dance movies of the 1980s! You'll notice, however, that we also included Saturday Night Fever in this episode even though it came out in 1977. We felt like we couldn't talk about dance films without at least mentioning the iconic movie that essentially created a genre of film.

This episode is more relaxed than our previous music episodes, as we share our thoughts on a small list of famous dance movies! We thought this might be a fun way to close out the month of June.

It's Memorial Day weekend, which means it's the unofficial beginning of summer! Pools everywhere are opening, families are firing up the grill, and friends are gathering around fire rings.

In honor of summer, we traveled into the woods and recorded a brief case around the campfire! So, grab some marshmallows and join us for some spooky tales!

This is the last you will hear from us this May as we take a little break from recording. BUT, we're very excited for all the episodes coming your way in June! For more info, sign up for our newsletter at:

Hey Cassettes!

So far this May, we have covered Pokemon, Godzilla, and now, DRAGONS. Unfortunately we weren't able to use the studio this week (we were traveling) so instead we recorded on location!

We made a list of our top 10 movie dragons! Based on ability, plot significance, design, and personality, we ranked our favorite fiery reptiles.

This episode is special for a few reasons. Not only is it slightly shorter than our other cases, it's also the last full-length episode for May! Next week we will be taking a brief hiatus, but we will be back in June.

With Detective Pikachu heading to theaters, we decided to revisit the global sensation that won over the hearts of children (and adults) everywhere: Pokémon!

Created in the late 1990s, the Pokémon games took the world by storm! There was the GameBoy games, the playing cards, the Burger King toys, the clothes, it was everywhere!
