Episode 111: Scary Evil Ethnic Natives

Racism in MoviesThis week, dear listeners, we have far too much fun discussing RACISM IN MOVIES, because our special guest star is the delightful Duck Washington! Duck is an actor and writer who recently created Caucasian-Aggressive Pandas and Other Mulatto Tales, a stage show about his experience growing up mixed-race, so he has a few things to say about racism.

If you would like to drink along, we recommend either Gnarly Head Cabernet Sauvignon (totally gnarly!) or Low Hanging Fruit Merlot Reserve (because surely you want the higher quality low-hanging fruit).

Here’s a photo of Duck with the wine:

Episode 106: Consider Yourself… So Sauced

Musicals that Windy hatesThis week, dear listeners, we bring you an episode about musicals that Windy hates! That’s right, there are several classic musicals that Windy can’t get behind, and we dig into them here! But here at Xanadu Cinema Pleasure Dome, we prefer to love movies and not hate them, so we also bring to you an assortment of great musicals that you can watch instead.

This episode was recorded back in December, which means this is the last of the full-drunk recordings. (Well, for now, anyway.) If you have been pining for the days when we’d drunkcast with wild abandon, this even-numbered episode is for you.

If you would like to drink along, we recommend either Glenlivet 12 or some sort of tempranillo.

Episode 96: There Is a Party in My Bottle, and You’re Invited!

0096 Party MoviesBuckle up, dear listeners, because this week, we celebrate the New Year with a selection of PARTY MOVIES! (Appropriately, this is an even-numbered episode, so the drunk is especially strong with this one.)

If you would like to drink along (hoo boy), we recommend either Yellowtail Winter Red Blend (Windy’s choice) or Kickapoo Fruit Shine sangria-flavored soda with New Amsterdam Vodka (Melissa’s choice).

(Note: Kickapoo Fruit Shine contains caffeine, unbeknownst to Melissa at the time. Melissa hadn’t had caffeine in many years. If she sounds like a rabid, drunk Tasmanian Devil at times during the episode, that is the reason. She spent the remainder of the night vaguely sick to her stomach, drunk-texting Caltech and JPL engineers until 5 AM.)
