Spling has been presenting Talking Movies on Fine Music Radio for over 7 years. The movie reviewer has a history of radio broadcast appearances, featuring on recurring shows on Radio 702/CapeTalk, Chai FM, 2Oceansvibe Radio, UCT Radio and Fine Music Radio with interviews on CCFM, East Coast Radio, Assembly Radio and BBC 5 Live.
While Talking Movies is published as a podcast at splingmovies.com on a weekly basis, Spling has broadened his podcasting to include Must Love Movies, The Three Wells of Screenwriting and now Confessions of a Movie Critic.
Must Love Movies sees Spling interviewing a guest as part of a private screening. The first two podcasts were recorded at the 12 Apostles Hotel, which has its own screening room, allowing Spling to do a one-on-one exploration of his guest’s favourite movies and film memories.
In The Three Wells of Screenwriting podcast, Spling serves as a host, facilitating the show with author Matthew Kalil interviewing screenwriters and authors on the principles belying his inspirational screenwriting book.
His latest podcast series, Confessions of a Movie Critic, is probably his most intimate and raw podcast. Recording in one take without a script, he uses this podcast to explore films, news and other movie-related content in a candid and conversational fashion. This is Spling’s chance to go deeper into reviews, unpacking films or exploring ideas that would otherwise be constrained by the written word or outlet guidelines.
