Dirty Sons of Pitches
About This Show
Every week, Nate, Ben, ad Eric, with the occasional special guest, talk movies and then play a series of movie-related games, including the central game, The Pitch, wherein our heroes take a concept and try and turn it into a working movie. Most of the time the podcasts will just descend into girlish laughter.
Other reoccurring games include Defend Yourself, where one person must defend their enjoyment of an indefensible movie, Sequel-ize It, Porno-ize It, Recast It, Genre Swap, Adapt the Unadaptable, Disney-fy-It, and Vanity Project, wherein our heroes tailor a movie project to a star.

3 days ago
The "Dirty Sons of Pitches" are recapping Oscars, lapping up R-rated Wolverine movies, and pitching final farewell stories for superheroes. It's a slightly delayed episode but the discussion will still be the same old level of esoteric nonsense and entertaining stream of consciousness banter. Available on iTunes. Episode 168 includes: -The live-action "Beauty and the Beast" is banned from an Alabama drive-in. Not for the reason you may think. -Oscars shock the world and one last "F U 'La La Land.'" Ben and Nate assess the Oscar telecast and make sense of its twist ending. -Ben and Nate saw "The Red Turtle" and it was... fine. Ben was let down by the all-female directed horror anthology, "XX." -"Logan" is a bloody, satisfying, mature finale. They saved the best for last. Where does the X-Men franchise go from here? -This Week's Pitch -- Final Superhero Stories! -Nate pitches a superhero retirement home and a mysterious killer stalking the ailing residents. -Ben pitches an epic end of the Marvel Cinematic Universe that starts for Captain America when America elects... Trump, and it involves every big name character like Iron Man and the Hulk in a typically epic fashion. Strap in, folks.
