Woah. You guys. This episode is extra super special. I am joined by a teen. While our cultural references may differ, we both discovered the movie Clueless around the same age (though I'm pretty sure Nakalia never had it on VHS, like I did.) PLUS, g...Show More

This episode is proooobbbbabbbly going to be more fun if you're pretty familiar with the movie. Molly and I tried out something folks have been suggesting I do for a long time, which is to record while we're watching the movie. You won't be able to w...Show More

What better time to discuss a movie that has dubious ideas about sexuality and consent than in #MeToo focused 2018? This episode gets real real. Also, you're going to hear a lot of disgusted sighs from me. I just want you to know that I edited probab...Show More

Are you ready for another episode with a lot of singing? Good, because this is one. And it's not just songs from Newsies. This episode is a doozie (a newsiedoozie?) for folks who like musicals. I think we reference probably 10 non-Newsies musicals, a...Show More

Josh Hollis (Predict-O-Cast, Butterfly Kisses ), joins me to discuss a lesser-known classic in the Rankin/Bass Christmas Collection, Santa Claus is Comin' to Town. This movie is a lot of fun, probably in large part because it's kind of short, just li...Show More

This week, Jennie joins me to watch the beautiful bummer of a movie, The Virgin Suicides. We get very confused about how similar all the teen movies were around this time, so sorry in advance for all the yelling at your radio that you're about to do....Show More

Hi everyone. This is my Halloween episode. It's a big one, because it has three beloved guests. But, that also means it gets a little raucous and sounds a little rough at times. Fair warning. Join Scott, Katie, Aaron, and I as we get into one of Kati...Show More

56:08 | Oct 6th, 2017

I'm back again this week with another classic! Join me and Scott, neither of us comedy experts, as we discuss what is and isn't funny about this movie, what kinds of comedy hold up in different times, and what appeals to us at different ages. I hope ...Show More

Soooo, it turns out that this animated film that we all watched as little kids deals with some heavy stuff. Our conversation about it turns to Kafka, Roxane Gay, the nature of love and regret, and also, you know, singing butterflies. Enjoy! Theme Son...Show More

We're back at it again. This week, Katie tells me a little more about what it's like to grow up in a small town with a very limited video collection that included, for some reason, the movie Tremors. I discover that I'm actually fewer degrees of sepa...Show More

Clarissa Explains it All might be the quintessential show for kids growing up in the early '90's. From landlines and VCR's to scrunchies and tie-dye, there's really nothing that pushes my nostalgia buttons better. Theme Song: "Life of Riley" Kevin Ma...Show More

Third episode! Woooo! This episode has 200% more dogs than past episodes. They make noise sometimes. I'm sorry, but that's just something you're going to need to be okay with. Also, there's 1000% more singing than past episodes, and probably 70% more...Show More
