Ep.12 – Gendered Awards, Anthony Bourdain Doc, and Streaming Directors

That's A Dozen Pixelsplitters! Welcome to Episode 12 of Pixelsplitters! Josh and Willis are back again, this time with some controversial subjects. Like why are the actor and actress award separated? Why not just "Best Actor," also how ethical is it to mimic someones voice with AI? And if streaming is so great, how come no huge directors are making their names there? All this and more!

Ep.11 – The End of Movies, Tarantino's Theaters, Peacemaker, and Marvel

So much to watch, so little time... Welcome to episode 11 dear listeners. Very little tech news this week so Josh and Willis are making a deep dive into the movie world. Listen in as we debate the question "Are movies dead" (spoilers: no), talk about this Peacemaker show that is apparently happening, cheer for Quentin Tarantino and his theater love, and of course, it wouldn't be an episode of Pixelsplitters if we didn't touch on what's going on in the MCU. Willis saw Black Widow. Pixelsplitters is a conversation podcast that explores the film and tv news of the week, with a healthy dash of video tech news sprinkled in.
