About Our Podcast

Hey there! Pete here, your go-to guy for the wonderfully wacky world of Australian cult cinema. My podcast, "A Dingo Ate My Movie," is my solo adventure into the heart of Australia's most eccentric and unforgettable films. But here's the cool part: every episode features a special guest co-host from all around the globe, making each chat a unique dive into our cinematic treasures.

Think of it as a global movie night where everyone's invited. My guest co-hosts bring their own perspectives, insights, and sometimes, bewildered reactions to the mix. It's like a world tour, but instead of landmarks, we're exploring Australia's most iconic, outrageous, and sometimes, downright bizarre films.

This isn't just about watching movies; it's about connecting cultures, sharing laughs, and uncovering the universal language of cinema. Each guest brings a slice of their world to the podcast, making every episode a fresh and exciting journey through the eyes of different film lovers. From directors and actors to fellow podcasters and film enthusiasts, we're bridging continents and celebrating the films that make us laugh, cry, and say, "Only in Australia."

So, whether you're a seasoned film buff or just someone curious about what the rest of the world thinks of our homegrown hits and misses, "A Dingo Ate My Movie" is your ticket to a fun, fascinating, and sometimes wild cinematic ride. Let's discover together how Australian cult cinema resonates—or bewilders—guests from every corner of the planet.

Grab your passport and your popcorn; it's time to start the show. Welcome to the most global Australian movie night ever!
