The 305 is a podcast series exploring every title in the Criterion Collection released on LaserDisc, from 1984 to 1999, in order of release. Criterion was the first company to introduce special features to home video, including trailers, critical essays, behind the scenes photos, and directors' commentary, and their releases have been referred to as "film school in a box."
Each episode will feature a guest, an intro to the movie followed by a break to watch the disc together, and ending with a discussion of the film, its place in history, and a determination of its worthiness in the Criterion Collection of "important classic and contemporary films from around the world."
