Welcome to the Rancho Notorious podcast

Rancho Notorious is a fortnightly podcast from RNZ about movies and other cool stuff. Produced by Dan Slevin and co-hosted by Kailey Carruthers, the show features local and international guests, news, reviews, giveaways and competitions.

Our audience is committed and opinionated film fans — the kind of people who like to talk back to the hosts and share what they know.

Why Rancho Notorious? It was directed directed by Fritz Lang in 1952 and Herr Lang, of course, also gave this blog its name.

Check us out at the iTunes store or subscribe to the show at http://ranchonotorious.libsyn.com/rss.

You can give us feedback in the comments here, via Twitter at @RanchoPodcast, or by email to ranchonotorious@rnz.co.nz. Letterboxd is coming but we’re steering clear of Facebook for the time being. Sorry, Facebookers.
