RARA-AVIS: Podcast on Film Noir

I don't know if this has been mentioned on the list before, but I wanted to recommend a podcast devoted to Film Noir. Each half-hour program looks at a different film and discusses the techniques used by the filmakers and the influences on the genre. It's a very interesting presentation and emphasises how the genre draws on hardboiled detective novels among other sources.

While they've covered many of the classics in the 10 episodes to date, their most recent one (which I've not heard yet) looks to be an entertaining deviation. They're comparing The Big Sleep with The Big Lebowski. Should be fun as well as illuminating!

The podcast is called "Out of the Past" and more information can be found at http://www.digitalpodcast.com/detail.php?id=2163 You can also subscribe to it through the podcast link in iTunes.
