10. Kevin Pollak's Chat Show
Released: Live on Ustream Sundays at 3pm PST, available at KevinPollaksChatShow.com Though Kevin Pollak's Chat Show isn't solely based on film, he does interview many prominent members of the film community including actors and directors. Pollak is an actor, impressionist, and stand-up comedian, and the show contains a unique formula that makes listening in quite a fun experience. The episodes are streamed live, and both video and audio editions of the show are available. This also allows the show to have an open chat room for listeners to submit questions to be asked during the show, and several games are played between Kevin, his co-hosts, and the celebrity guest. The show began on March 22, 2009 and at the time of this writing, there have been 178 episodes.
