I Saw What You Did is a different kind of movie podcast. Millie De Chirico knows all about the craft of movies. Her friend Danielle Henderson knows what she likes when it comes to film. They are real-life friends who love to watch movies and talk about them. In each episode, they discuss two movies that share a theme. These are not double features one could expect to see on TCM. Millie's and Danielle's life experiences inform the connections. Some of the themes are "great '70s apartments," "really bad boyfriends," and "90s murderer Tiger Beat hotties."
I Saw What You Did is not pretentious. Millie does not enjoy spending time with other "film experts." In the first episode, she explains why she is happy to do this podcast with Danielle. Danielle loves movies but would never say, "Well, actually..." to her. The hosts don't shame people for not having seen certain "classic" films.
The I Saw What You Did hosts have fun and want their podcast to be a conversation with their listeners. They invite folks to email them if they find the content relatable or have something to add. They share listener messages on the podcast, often in bonus episodes. The hosts also once invited a listener onto the show. The listener wrote an email the hosts appreciated. The three had a lovely discussion about their experiences. It turned out that they have a lot in common.
I Saw What You Did is a podcast for people who enjoy analyzing films. Its humanity and accessibility make it a fun listen. New episodes come out several times each week.
