Have You Heard? is a series in which the team from Pod Bible meet the people behind the podcasts you may not have heard of yet. While the Oh. My. Pod. section in the magazine gives a quick shout out to shows of that ilk, Have You Heard aims to go deeper in an effort to spread awareness for shows that deserve more exposure! In this week’s edition we sat down with Jack Chambers to discuss his podcast, TheSequelisers.
POD BIBLE: Who are you, what is your podcast called, and what’s it about?
JACK CHAMBERS: My name’s Jack Chambers, the podcast I host is called Sequelisers and it’s all about fixing and rewriting the bad sequels from cinematic history. Our slogan is “Bad sequels, sorted.”
PB: Why did you decide to start podcasting in the first place?
JC: I had already been listening to a few shows and my reason for starting initially was simply wanting to talk to like-minded people about subjects I’m interested in (usually, comics and video games).
PB: What’s the first podcast you ever listened to?
JC: I think it was around episode five of Podcast Beyond, the Playstation podcast from IGN, all the way back in 2007.
PB: Which podcasts do you take inspiration from?
JC: Start-up companies like Kinda Funny (based in San Francisco) and RKG (based in London) are a big inspiration for me personally and set the bar for us with where we dream of taking Sequelisers in the future.
PB: Who’s your dream guest for the podcast?
JC: Since we’re a film podcast, I think interviewing a brilliant director or screenwriter would be amazing. Denis Villeneuve is the first person who springs to mind as I know he’s a favourite of mine as well as my fellow Sequelisrs Matt and Tim.
PB: What’s the biggest lesson you’ve learnt so far as a podcaster?
JC: Audio quality matters. Sequelisers started off as five friends talking into one microphone placed in the middle of the table. We’ve since evolved our equipment and, just as importantly, our editing skills to make the show sound as professional as possible.
PB: Which episode would you say is the perfect introduction to your Podcast?
JC: Season Five Episode One – The Dark Knight Rises is definitely the one I’d recommend. It’s the perfect jumping-on point for our current lineup and format.
PB: Where can the Pod Bible readers find out more about you?
JC: You can find all the Sequelisers information including our social media links, merch store and Patreon at www.sequelisers.com
