Pages and Popcorn Podcast

In each episode, we recap and then discuss a movie that was based on a book as well as the original source material.

We talk about what the themes are, what changes were made for the adaptation, and how they affected the overall point of the stories.

And we answer the age-old question: “Is this worth my time?”

Join us as we discuss books… and the films they inspired!

Hosted by the PPP Team (Kaylia, Chris, Leah, Matt, Cynthia, and Jennifer)

Our ten most recent episodes…

72. The Quiet Boy / Antlers PagesAndPopcornPodcast

Kaylia and Sarah discuss The Quiet Boy (short story) and Antlers (movie adaptation). When you base a feature length film on an 8,000 word short story, you have to add some stuff. But some of the things they added were truly scary. We talk about the stories behind the plots, the people behind the monsters, and the big sins behind the padding. Plus a tease about a future PPP episode!
