Episode 113: The Parrot Is Under Police Protection

Errol MorrisDear listeners, this week, we are joined by guest star Paul Comeau for an episode about master documentarian, Errol Morris! Paul was a former cohost of The Geek Life podcast alongside Melissa, so this is a reunion of sorts. Also, Errol Morris is awesome.

If you would like to drink along, we recommend picking up a bottle of Lambrusco (Windy’s pick) or pre-Prohibition cocktails crafted out of Old Tom gin (which is what Paul was sharing with Melissa).

We do have one correction for this week’s episode. During the show, Melissa complains that the film A Brief History of Time is nigh-impossible to see. Well, it isn’t anymore! In 2014 (which was after Melissa marathoned all of Morris’ films), Criterion released A Brief History of Time on both DVD and Blu-Ray, so now it’s back in circulation.

Also,  we promised a photo of Errol Morris hugging Werner Herzog under a rainbow, so here you go:

Episode 88: Onion, Parsley, Shoe

0088 DocumentariesThis week, dear listeners, Melissa gets all nerdy with one of her favorite areas of cinema: documentaries. She selects a few of her favorites to discuss, and Windy adds a few of her own.

If you would like to drink along, we suggest either Norton Barrel Select red wine or New Amsterdam vodka, both of which are fine budget selections.

We apologize for the audio issues. We were recording over Hangouts, and Windy’s feed wasn’t always reliable. Also, there was nearly a one-second delay, so some weird timing things happen. We’ve fixed everything we can.

To make up for it, here’s a screenshot of Windy making a face:
