The Book Vs. Movie podcast (www.bookversusmovie.com) is now available in both iTunes and Stitcher radio and ready for book and movie fans who love that old debate “which was better—the book or the movie?” Started in August 2014 by fitness Bloggers Margo Porras (Margo P.) of Nacho Mama’s Blog and Margo Donohue (Margo D.) of Brooklyn Fit Chick the idea for the podcast came up when the two longtime friends met up in Savannah for a fitness convention.
Every year the two “Margos” meet at Fitbloggin and then create a round-up podcast of all of the weekend events for Bloggers who could not attend the event. While discussing their time at Fitbloggin in Savannah in 2014 the two wound up discussing the John Berendt’s classic book Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil and the not-so-great film directed by Clint Eastwood into such great detail that the podcast listener feedback indicated they wanted to read the book and watch the film right away.
In a few short weeks Margo P. and Margo D. combined forces and created Book Vs. Movie with a diverse batch of episodes so far including:
- Gone Girl
- High Fidelity
- The Godfather
- The Firm
- The Wizard of Oz
“For me, it’s like getting to share one of the coolest chicks I know with the world,” said Margo P. “The response to this podcast is so much bigger than either Margo D. or I could have imagined, it’s been really exciting to see how quickly we’ve grown. Our audience is so engaged and they have the best show ideas!”
“I am beyond thrilled to co-host a show I would absolutely be devoted to and count myself lucky to both know and work with the brilliant and funny Margo P,” said Margo D. “Every episode we methodically research the author, director, backstory and try to learn as much trivia as possible to give our audience a fun and informative experience.
Fans of Book Vs Movie can reach out to the Margo’s via their Facebook page, follow them on Twitter @bookversusmovie or e-mail Margo D at [email protected]. The website was created using Square Space (www.bookversusmovie.com) Folks are encouraged to reach out and offer episode ideas!
