It has been interesting to go behind the scenes and learn more about the production. I appreciated finding out why changes were made. On a personal note, I find the changes made due to technical production issues fascinating while those made at the whims of the writers/producers frustrating. The first two seasons are hosted predominantly by Ron Moore and are full of information. Toni Graphia takes over as host for most of seasons 3 and 4. She loves to talk and spends most of her time doing character analysis, failing to talk about production. When Matthew B. Roberts is hosting itâs better and he can speak of sets and production challenges, but I really wish Ron would return.
Love hearing the details and their thought processes and decisions that posed problems
I started listening to this podcast hoping to gain some insight into the adaptation choices made for the show. Unfortunately, the producers and writers spend most of their time patting themselves on the back without really explaining themselves, and telling us about what they're drinking while they're recording it. In the podcast for episode 409, they spent the entire time of a very critical scene reminiscing about a party involving whisky and warm chocolate chip cookies. Don't expect to learn anything useful relevant to the show.
I appreciate the commentary but itâs rendered useless without being able to see what they're speaking about.
As someone who has a film degree and enjoys seeing all the behind the scenes stuff, I find that particular part of this podcast enlightening. I like knowing why writers and producers make the decisions they make. Adapting a novel series as vast and detailed as Outlander canât be easy and knowing why they choose certain parts of the novel and leave out others is very interesting. However, be prepared to get angry over the reasoning. These writers and producers LOVE secondary characters like Laoghaire and Frank and LOVE to insert them in anywhere. Having watched the show, I already know this, but hearing the reason behind the crazy amount of screen time for those 2 characters is INFURIATING. So, if youâd like a little insight into why things are the way they are in the show vs the book, then give it a listen. Seasons 1 and 2 are a little different because those seasons are hosted predominantly by Ron Moore. Seasons 3 and 4 are predominantly hosted by executive producers Matt Roberts and Toni Graphia. Seasons 3 and 4 are way more infuriating. Just FYI.
I love the insight into the episodes and seeing how things are done behind the scenes. There is so many great info we get from listening to this. I wish I would have known about this when I first started watching a couple years ago. Now I can go back and listen to them all.
Just wondering if everyone is having the same problem?
iTunes podcast for last two episodes temporarily unavailable. Why?
Where is episode 405? It is 4 days behind schedule for being released.
Love the podcasts and all of the inside stories on each ep. Especially love Matt and Toni. Ron has this show in very good hands!FYI Terryâs costumes rock and I can listen to her and Ron anytime. Especially loved the wedding ep podcast and Ronâs confession of the first Tim he met Terry.
Did you guys know episode 210 isnât working please fix that
I donât know why but when I went to listen to the podcast for âAmerica the Beautifulâ it was the podcast for the âthe Eye of the Storm.â I enjoyed that podcast when I originally listened to it and listened again to refresh my memory of that episode, but it wasnât the correct podcast for the newest episode. Am I going to have to go to another source to find the correct one? Whatâs the point of being subscribed if I donât get the correct episode?
Who sits down with the tv on to listen to a podcast? Please include the showâs audio with your commentary. Most people listen to podcasts during a commute or workout and all of the choppy silences make it so hard to stay engaged.
I look forward to your podcasts every season. I was excited to see episode 401 ready to play this morning, and...itâs episode 313, listed as 401. I already listened to that one last season. This has happened a few times before. Please fix this ASAP! Other than that, Iâm a big fan. Thanks!
This is so good until it turns ugly and horrific. After I watched parts of the last two episodes of season 1, it haunted me. I feel it crossed a serious line. I imagine the actors experience PTSD to this day. Especially Jamie and Captain Randall. Youâll regret letting these images in your mind.
I love to hear how film and TV is made so this was such a treat to find. So thrilled that Ron Moore does a podcast for each individual episode, it is the film geekâs dream. I also love that (so far) he is usually drinking whiskey and often by a crackling fire to really set the Scottish mood.
Mary and Blake discuss each episode with humor and insight. I love hearing Maryâs genuine laugh and Blakeâs analysis. Usually, I save their episodes for garden or cleaning days to make them go fast! Thanks M and B! You always make my day!
Great insight into the tv series!
Learning a lot, especially like hearing about the choices made when it has to deviate from the book. Would love to have the actors participate and hear about the filming from their perspective as well. Keep up the great work!
As much as I love to listen, the random list of episodes-out of order, missing, mis-titled, etc. has frustrated the heck out of me. âJesus H. Roosevelt Christâ get your podcast together!
