Toronto, Canada, February 10, 2016 (Newswire.com) - A group of local Toronto musicians, artists, photographers and filmmakers have taken to the internet in celebration of their love for film. In the most recent episode of the group's podcast "Movies Ruined My Life", released February 10th 2016, the discussion panel show sets their sights on the catalog of celebrated director Stanley Kubrick.
“It goes without saying that we’re are not in Hollywood, but Toronto as a city has a truly unique cultural footprint and a collection of people from so many different walks of life with so many different perspectives. I feel as though our show is very much channeling a bit of that and it makes it a podcast that couldn’t be made anywhere but here.” said host Brandon Fleet, who was very eager to take on the task of discussing the legendary filmmaker. “I think that very few artists of any medium are able to affect others emotionally, seemingly at will, in the way that Kubrick was able to. That’s why his work is the perfect topic to address in this manner. Often our discussions feel like a study of the human condition under the guise of a podcast about movies. So while the show is full of jokes and colorful language, there's something more there, if you want it. Does that sound familiar at all?”

While these podcasters are proud of where they hail from and choose to embrace it and make it part of their show, they also choose not to censor profanity, making the show targeted for mature audiences. Each episode encourages listeners to reach out to the panelists on social media and continue the conversation. The show welcomes input from listeners and contributors of all backgrounds and outlooks and even goes so far as to openly invite people to “tell them off” if they feel so inclined. How wonderfully Canadian of them.
