The Alien Minute Podcast – Dissecting Alien One Minute At a Time

Earlier this week the brand new Alien podcast – The Alien Minute Podcast – started posting their first episodes. This latest Alien podcast has an interesting premise; each episode’s discussion is based on a minute of footage from the theatrical cut of Alien (inspired by a similar podcast that does the same for Star Wars).

The Alien Minute Podcast is releasing daily (though not at weekends) and episodes run between 10 to 20 minutes. The series is hosted by John Ingle, a cartoonist and screenwriter, and Mitch Brian, a screenwriter, filmmaker and educator who has previously worked on Batman: The Animated Series.

The Alien Minute Podcast – a brand new daily Alien podcast that looks at Alien, one minute at a time.

John and Mitch have released five episodes so far so they’re only 5 minutes into the film but it’s a really intriguing premise and well worth a listen! Head on over to their website and check them out. The episodes are also available on iTunes. You can also follow them on Twitter.

    I gave it a listen. Each episode is rather short, so I don't lose focus before the end. Lol

    Interesting concept for a podcast! I'll keep up with it, and see how it progresses. I like the attention to detail, which is forced by the fact they're only focused on a 1 minute segment at a time. They actually pointed out some really small details I'd never really paid any attention to before, like objects moving in the ship before anyone is awake yet (how was it moving? Why? Etc...).

    I'd like to see them continue with the other alien movies, and maybe include some "bonus episodes" focused on deleted scenes and/or scenes in the director's cuts/special editions. That was the one thing I was kinda bummed out by... This is focused on the theatrical cut, so we won't hear anything about the scenes like the egg morphing scene, etc... :-(

    Just finished episode 5, was pretty cool, I like the format a lot. Sometimes they get a lil off topic though.

    Makes me want to watch the film 1 minute at a time with a friend lol

    Also in ep 4 I think, they talk about the papers russeling, I personally thought it was to show the air refilling the ship. They seemed to think it showed the camera man as some sort of narrator. Interesting to say the least.
