In 2020, we began a project on The Obsessive Viewer Podcast in which we each select a movie from Roger Ebert’s Great Movies List and discuss them on the podcast. Here you will find a running list of all the podcast episodes where we cover the Great Movies as well as a list of each individual title sorted by the film’s release date.
