About Beyond Kasterborous

Beyond Kasterborous is a podcasting hub for a range of topical cult television and movie podcasts.

What are podcasts?

Podcasts are simply self-contained online pre-recorded radio shows. You download them to listen on your computer’s audio player or listen to them on an online hosted player such as those embedded on this website, or in catalogue audio sites such as audioboom.com.

You can also download them to your phone or tablet using a dedicated app. Some cars can even play podcasts, as can the Amazon Echo.

It’s all free. Simply press-and-play, or follow the guide in our Subscribe page.

Who Are Beyond Kasterborous?

We are a selection of cult television and film critics from the UK and the USA. We are fans, but we like to position ourselves as critical more than fanatical. We don’t look to define ourselves as any form of consumer custodian – our opinions reflect our own critical reflections and do not seek to define your own. We do aim to represent any fandoms, we do not aim to valorise any production we review. We try to be fair, we try to be honest, and we do our best to be critical; we seek to justify our reasons, rather than opinionate our feelings.

The emphasis here is on try – it’s not always as easy as we’d like it to be!
