#310 – Jim Henson’s Depression Shop
< 1 day ago
We’ve talked about nostalgia on this podcast many times in the past. It can shine a light on terrible movies we once thought were good or it can remind us why we fell in love with something in the first place. It can also depress the hell out of us, as we unfortunately found out this week looking back at a selection of Jim Henson’s most famous creations from our childhood. For a guy who thought that the original Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles movie was too violent, he sure did love depressing the hell out of young children.
I’m your host, David Snider, and joining me this week are fellow nerds Jonathan Hinckley, Cody Eastlick, Chad Griner, and Ryan Caldwell.
Topics of discussion in this episode include a brief look at the Circus (aka: the Presidential Debates); The Secret of Nimh continues to terrify us well into our thirties; and finally, we hit the old BuzzFeed list generator and take a look at the most depressing moments in animated and kids television. It’s fun for the whole family!!!

My #1 weekly staple
These guys keep me company at work. I've been listening for 3 years and we live a state apart but they would no doubt have refrigerator privileges at my house. David, Cody, Chad, and Ryan I don't always agree but I always love to hear your opinions on movies. My husband is a movie buff and this gives us some common ground. 10 years of marriage leaves you sparse on discussion topics. Thanks for the entertainment and interaction. I've enjoyed it so much I thought I'd take a moment to let everyone know. :-)

Clerks - Verified
These guys are certainly clerks with a capital "C" and they're just polished enough to let you enjoy that fact, without being annoyed by it. Great geek-out fan show for all things movies, TV and the kinds of interests we had because we weren't dating... And I mean that as a compliment.
