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 107: Everybody Needs Frockcoats

The PrestigeThis week, dear listeners, we bring you a magical double-feature episode about the two magician movies that came out in 2006: The Prestige and The Illusionist! (Okay, there was a third one in the same year, but did anyone really see Scoop?) For this episode, we are joined once again by super special guest star, Fes Works!

If you would like to drink along, we recommend the following (not necessarily at the same time): Two Gingers Whiskey (Windy’s pick), Apple Pie (Fes’ pick), or New Glarus Staghorn Octoberfest (Melissa’s pick).
