Happy Thursday guys! Today I am bringing you another installment in my ‘(Wednesday) Spotlight’ series, only this time I’m doing it on a Thursday, I hope that’s okay!? Today I will be featuring something a little different: a podcast…about movies! I know what some of you are thinking; “Brittney, what are you doing? You don’t even watch movies,” and while that may be true, I know that many of you do. So since I have a front row seat (David (my BF) is on the podcast), I thought I would share the goodness that is FML My Life with all of you fine folks! I don’t know if any of you are familiar with Fantasy Movie League (FML), if not don’t fret, neither was I; but the FML My Life podcast is a show dedicated to the FML game and to those who play it! If you’ve always been intrigued by fantasy sports and the healthy anxiety (on my end) that goes along with it but weren’t really into football, baseball…or really anything else, this might be the perfect place for you! I know this probably sounds ultra-confusing, but I promise it’s easier than it sounds! I will tell you a little about the game and then give you all the deets for the podcast below! So if you’re a movie buff that likes pop culture, witty banter, and 4 dashingly handsome co-hosts (check out their bio page), then keep on reading!
**All of the following information was provided by David Hammock, one of 4 co-hosts on FML My Life. So not only will this information be much easier to understand than the nonsense listed above, it’s also much more accurate, you’re welcome!**
Fantasy Movie League (FML) is a lot like fantasy sports, but instead of scoring points via quarterbacks and wide receivers each Sunday, your score is based on the box office each weekend. You begin every week on Monday with $1000 and fill out your personal cineplex with eight screens of whatever combination of uniquely priced movies you see fit before Friday. It’s easy to learn, not-so-easy to master, and lots of fun whether you’re a novice or an expert thanks to the vibrant community.
If you’re interested in playing FML (it’s FREE!), head over to https://fantasymovieleague.com/ to sign up — it’s super quick and super easy. A new season starts in just a few weeks, so it’s a great time to join, get a few weeks under your belt, then hit the ground running when Fall Season starts on Monday, August 28. (Note: this may be the only time you’ll ever see Fall and August in the same sentence.)
The FML My Life Podcast is a show dedicated to the Fantasy Movie League game and to those who play it, but also has a little something for everyone with movie talk, pop culture discussion, and four handsome hosts, 75% of whom are named David (it’s worth tuning in for the confusion alone). So whether you end up playing FML or not, please give our podcast a listen, follow us on Twitter, and check out our website!
Shout out to David for explaining that much better than I ever could! Guys, I’ll be straight with you; I don’t listen to any other podcasts (though I’m open to suggestions), I don’t play FML (though I am intrigued) and I’m the furthest thing from a movie buff you could find, but this podcast is incredibly entertaining. Despite my boyfriend being one of the co-hosts, you should know that I don’t watch or listen to anything I don’t like (I still refuse to give Lord of The Rings a try), so If I’m willing to give it a listen, it’s totally worth your time! Even though they reference the FML game during the show, it’s not done in a way that would deter you from listening if you don’t play the game! So if movies, pop culture discussion & witty banter are your thing, this is the podcast for you! Be sure to check out all of their links and socials above and let me know what you think!
