, with special guest:

0047 Aldrich 1Happy New Year, dear listeners! Today, we herald 2015 with the first half of a two-episode pairing about director Robert Aldrich! Even better than that, we are joined by podcaster extraordinaire Noel Thingvall, who has seen nearly every Aldrich film and has so many things to teach us.

The wine for this episode was provided by devoted listener Elliott James: Kenwood Vineyards 2009 Cabernet Sauvignon. We know he loves us, because, wow, it’s quite the wine. We highly recommend you find a bottle of it. Thank you so much, Elliott!
