Bob Saget's Here For You

A podcast that is like no other— Because it goes inside Bob Saget’s mind, and then quickly filters out through his mouth. Bob has a way of calming people with genuine empathy and humor while they’re going through a difficult time, which we all are at present. Reaching his unusually diverse audience that he talks to as a friend, Bob is the dad with great advice, the irreverent funny guy who’s always there when you need a laugh, and the free-associative Bob who goes off on crazy tangents then returns to the subject at hand, as serious or as comedic as it may be, to wrap up each episode in a way only Bob can do. Because he really does believe, “He’s here for you."

Footcandle Films

Do you enjoy listening to people talk about films? What about those films that may not show up at the local multiplex but are instead showing at the smaller specialty theater across town? Then "Footcandle Films" may be the show for you. Each month, the hosts discuss and review one "smaller" film in-depth, discuss upcoming film news, and give recommendations on films that you may not be aware of, ones that you haven't remembered in a while, or ones that are worth your time checking out. And all the while, the conversation never gets too "high-brow" or pretentious. Just two guys who enjoy talking about movies. Your Hosts: Alan Jackson and Chris Frye, founders of the Footcandle Film Society.
