On Feeling Seen, writer and general enthusiast Jordan Crucchiola invites filmmakers, writers, comedians, and artists to discuss the movie characters that made them "feel seen." It's about that instant when a person connects to a piece of art so deeply that they see themselves reflected in it. Every week Jordan gabs it up with a guest about those magical moments when they were watching a film and realized, "That's me!" It's an informative, funny, and comforting show about our intimate relatio ...
 
Jordan Crucchiola and Amanda Smith believe that not every disaster movie is a disaster. Whether it’s an A-List actor trying to outrun a lava flow, or a C-List actor punching a mutant shark in the face, Jordan and Amanda will find something to love - or to laugh about. Join them every Wednesday as they break down the highs and loves of a beloved (or under appreciated) entry in the disaster movie canon.
