Movies can be so fun to break down and dissect, especially with the right people. You want to discuss movies with someone who knows what they’re talking about, so that you  can discuss in depth about all the movies you love. The podcast “Long Take with Caitie & Jordan” does just that. 

Caitie McLaughlin ‘15 and Jordan Frame ‘13, two LCN graduates, started a podcast earlier this year to talk all about movies. McLaughlin describes the podcast as “A movie breakdown podcast from two big film fans, but honestly it’s just hanging out with your two best friends.” 

These two friends met while working at the movie theater, MJR. Their whole friendship has quite literally been built on movies. When asked why they started “Long Take with Caitie & Jordan”, McLaughlin explained, “We wanted to start a podcast because we always have interesting conversations about movies, and we thought it would be fun to share these conversations to the public.” 

Frame and McLaughlin are also big podcast fans, and always share their favorite podcasts with each other. “It was only a matter of time before we started one of our own.” added Frame. 

So far the pair have made fourteen episodes, discussing thirteen movies, completing their first season. They are currently working on season two which is set to premiere on March 19th. McLaughlin and Frame explained that they record their podcast straight from their home. One day they decided they wanted to record a podcast, and the next they were creating a studio. “We have a small studio that we created in a spare bedroom at Jordan’s house. We might put out video recordings soon so everyone can see our set up!” commented McLaughlin. 

McLaughlin and Frame have had so much fun creating their podcast, and encourage everyone to do what they love and follow their dreams. “If someone was considering starting a podcast, I would tell them to do it, because it’s not just about content and listeners. Even if no one listens, Jordan and I will have this forever as something that we can look back on over our friendship. It’s a special thing to create with your best friend. Also, we have so much fun doing it.” McLaughlin commented.
