The Shame List Picture Show is a podcast recorded in Wisconsin and Maryland by a pair of moving-loving filmmakers and close friends. Michael Viers and Nick Richards came up with the idea for The Shame List Picture Show while discussing their respective "shame lists", or films that they felt, as cinephiles, they should have already seen but had not. And thus, the podcast was born. Tune in to listen as they talk about a wide variety of movies they feel are important for each other and listeners to check out. Catch a variety of guest speakers who weigh in on films they are also passionate about -- or even starred in!
