Episode 112: Congratulations, Ulysses S. Grant

Movie-Themed WeddingsThis week, dear listeners, we bring you a completely self-indulgent episode about our movie-themed weddings! That’s right: Melissa just got married a few weeks ago in a very nerdy fashion, and Windy also had a nerd wedding when she got married, so we just talk about all that for an hour. We promise that there is far more talk about swords and Godzilla than flower arrangements or color themes.

If you would like to drink along, we recommend either Yellowtail Sangria (Windy’s pick) or Bushmills Whiskey (Melissa’s pick).

We don’t currently have a copy of the photo of Windy’s wedding that was discussed in the episode (we’ll add it later when we find a copy of it), but here are a couple photos from Melissa’s wedding:

Episode 87: Whaps Whapsolically

0087 Movie MusicDear listeners, this week we talk about movie music with our friend and movie fan, Pat Wick! We chat about movie music we love and about some we hate, and then we sing a bit.

If you would like to drink along, we recommend Casillero del Diablo Carmenere, which we found highly drinkable.

An additional note on this episode: you may notice in the Ravenous section that Melissa does not actually talk about the music. She did, but her original short description was based on alcohol and not seeing the film for a very long time, so it was a misrepresentation of what the score is like. Thus, we clipped out those two sentences. Here’s a better description: it’s like American Civil War-era folk music meets Charles Ives.
