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.
