Podcast Rollcall: The Business

Genre: News/analysis

What It's About: Whereas most entertainment coverage tends to focus on the talent and craftsmanship behind your favorite movies, TV shows or records, this show looks at things from a business perspective. What's behind the decisions that the big studios are making? How did that little indie producer pull the funding to make that underground hit? What are the current business trends, and what will that mean for the future of entertainment? Here, you'll get informed analysis from veteran industry journalists, and often industry professionals themselves.

Why You Should Care: While it may not be quite as glamorous, there are a lot of elements in play that affect what gets made and what becomes popular. This show shines a little bit of a light on that.

Frequency: Weekly

Average Length: 30 minutes
