The Case of Cinematography


Hey there, Cassettes! This week on The Black Case Diaries, we decided to discuss cinematography. Even though we couldn't cover everything, this is still our longest episode to date! We took a look at the history of the art, what it entails, and some great film examples suggested by our friends on twitter.

Thanks for listening!

Salute Your Case


Hey Cassettes! Here are the show notes that we wrote while researching our episode on Salute Your Shorts.

If you’re unfamiliar, Salute Your Shorts was a live-action Nickelodeon show in the early 1990s. It followed a group of young kids and their shenanigans at summer camp.

The Case of Veronica Mars


 Hey there, Marshmallows! This week, we decided to do something new for our episode. Because we're talking about our favorite teen private investigator, we thought we might try our hand at recording an audio drama! Spoilers: it did not go well. So instead, we recorded a small short for the beginning of this episode, followed by an hour of our unscripted regular show. 

This week we talked about Veronica Mars, the teen detective from Neptune, CA. We discussed the old show, why it was cancelled, and some of our favorite characters. This episode is a great way to freshen up your memory before the season four premier later this month!

A Case That’s All That


 Throughout the 1980s, Nickelodeon’s popular show, “You Can’t Do That on Television” aired on the network. After the show had ended in 1990, the network was considering trying another sketch comedy show starring kids.

The Case of Summer Movies


It's officially summer! It's the season of cook-outs, family reunions, patriotic holidays, and childhood nostalgia. This week, we each chose a movie we watch every summer and talked about why it's a quintessential summer movie.

We also released a (Brief) Case on movies to watch for July Fourth, available on our Patreon.

Happy Fourth of July from all of us here at The Black Case Diaries!

The Case of the 80s Dance Flick


 It’s the final episode of June Tunes and we decided to focus on dance movies of the 1980s! You’ll notice, however, that we also included Saturday Night Fever in this episode even though it came out in 1977. We felt like we couldn’t talk about dance films without at least mentioning the iconic movie that essentially created a genre of film.
