In this episode, we welcome two podcasters from 60MW, Ben Ford and Chris Jellyman, who each put out a myriad of shows and content. Ben has been a musician since age 15, playing the guitar. He used to play in a band in the London area and still write and plays songs. He got involved with podcasting when he stumbled across Chris on Twitter. Chris’s story begins with a show called, The Same Coin. The video game podcast lasted for several years before running it’s course. But, as one door shuts, another opens. Chris joined with the podcast 60MW, then called 60 Minutes With.
One of the first shows Chris and Ben did is the video game show, The ABCs of Gaming, where they are joined by Adam Parry. Ben is also part of the ClintCast, where he and podcast owner, Dave Robinson, break down the films of Clint Eastwood in release order. After months of discussion, Ben also launched a new show under the 60MW label called, The ABC’s of Fording Ahead. It is a show based on how to stay positive in a challenging world. He is teamed up with Chris Jellyman and Alan Sanders from our own podcast.
Chris has other shows as well. He co-hosts the Spotlight Reflection shows with Adam Parry. It is a show where they look back and films (or TV shows) they loved as kids and see if they still hold up today. He also does the Entertainment Show with Dave Robinson, where they look at the latest moves, TV shows and documentaries they’ve been watching. Chris and Alan have also launched a new limited series under the Soundcheck music shows, breaking down their thoughts on Metallica’s discography.
Walt is working his way through season 3 of, “Yellowstone,” and loves. He cannot recommend it enough. Walt also thinks fans of the wit and snark of the Airplane movies should checkout the Netflix series, “Medical Police.” Ben says he will always default to some classics when he needs a laugh, such as, “Fawlty Towers,” and, “Friday Night Dinner.” He just started season one of, “Ozark.” He likes it, though admits it’s a heavy show. Chris is starting season 6 of, “Bosch,” and season 5 of, “Brooklyn Nine-nine.” He also recommends, “Justified,” and, “Santa Clarita Diet.” Alan just started season one of, “Yellowstone,” and finished season six of, “Bosch.”
Chris recommends two books he just recently completed: “Bond on Bond,” by Roger Moore and, “Can’t Hurt Me,” by David Goggins.
Walt started listening to The Marine Corps Movie Minute podcast. In their first season, they are breaking down the Clint Eastwood flick, “Heartbreak Ridge.” Ben loves many crime-related podcasts and recommends True Crime All the Time. He is also listening to Under Consoletation, a show looking back at a video game television show, one episode at a time. Chris likes to listen to Alan’s weekly Saturday radio show, “Waking Up with Alan,” and sometimes the following show, “BK on the Air.” He is listening to the audio book, “Thanks alot, Mr. Kibblewhite,” by Roger Daltry of The Who. Alan recommends everyone should subscribe and listen to 60MW. He also does a big shout-out to the podcast, Radio Labyrinth.
