Discussion | Aladdin w/ Dana Cox, Rachel Forman & Katie Plattner
Dana Cox, Rachel Forman and Katie Plattner of the improv group Goblin Boys come on to do Disney’s foray into the Middle East, ‘Aladdin’. We discuss first crushes, Dana and Rachel’s Dominos + ‘Aladdin’ after school routine, Raja’s gender, ‘Moana’, the whole “Genie, you’re free” meme from when Robin Williams died, who counts as a Disney princess and Shane’s disdain for Aladdin’s voice.

Discussion | Romy and Michele’s High School Reunion w/ Allegra Ringo & Rachel Hastings
Rachel Hastings (Bob’s Burgers) and Allegra Ringo (Can I Pet Your Dog? podcast) are both so lovely and funny, so of course they brought on the lovely and funny (and weird) movie ‘Romy and Michele’s High School Reunion’! Together they discuss taking the movie seriously, Mira Sorvino’s insane accent choice, the lack of female buddy comedies, wondering who sets up high school reunions, who we went to high school with and why we live in big cities with tiny houses.

Dickie Copeland and Joel Jensen (UCB’s The Dragons) are back for some more Tolkien, y’all! This time it’s ‘The Two Towers’ and we have a LOT to say about it. Some things covered include the sparse use of Haldir, problems with Faramir and choices taken differently than the book, more fantastic Orc lines, how great Aragorn is, Eowyn’s awful singing, some Hobbit shit-talking, and mostly, our favorite parts.
59 minutes | Jul 19, 2018
Recreation | Signs w/ Henry Lennon & Will Lennon
Them Lennon’s do Signs! Note 1: I know Bangladesh is a country, I’m sorry. Note 2: The joke I claim no one will recognize is from ‘Rocket Power’
24 minutes | Jul 17, 2018
Discussion | Signs w/ Henry Lennon & Will Lennon
It was a no-brainer to have Shane’s brother Will back, as well as their cousin Henry to do M. Night Shyamalan’s last good movie, ‘Signs’. They all love this movie despite it’s faults and have seen it many, many times. Discussion includes a terrible fan theory about demons, having to admit Mel Gibson is good in it, Michael Showalter’s cameo, and mostly just really breaking down why this movie is great.

Discussion | The Empire Strikes Back w/ Patrick Ehlers & Mark Mitchell
After doing a movie that was later to be renamed ‘A New Hope’, Patrick Ehlers and Mark Mitchell (Nintendo Cartridge Society podcast) had to come back and do every Star Wars nerd’s favorite of those films, ‘Empire Strikes Back’. The three of them talk being fine with Ewoks, the stress and dragging this movie brings, hating nostolgiabate/Star Wars nerds, Patrick’s desire for Yoda’s feet, Vader’s managerial skills, and what counts as nerdy now that nerds are mainstream.

The Disney Vaulters and Shane are SPAR-TA-CUS

Discussion | That Thing You Do! w/ Rachel Chapman, Clare Loughran & Oscar Montoya
This is a big one for Shane. When Rachel Chapman, Clare Loughran and Oscar Montoya were on the first time to do ‘Emperor’s New Groove’, they finished recording, then immediately realized they all were obsessed with Tom Hanks’ feel-good, extremely likeable, fake one-hit wonder film, ‘That Thing You Do!’ On this episode, the 4 of them dive into why they love this film.

Michael Levin and Patrick Kang (NBC’s Trial and Error) are back to talk one of their favorite summer jams ‘Summer Catch.’ Together they discuss such things as Matthew Lillard’s off-color jokes, Freddie Prinze Jr’s Boston accent, the film’s connection to ‘Good Will Hunting’, an amazing anecdote about a former ‘Scrubs’ star, bad movie baseball and overall, just convincing Shane this is a good movie.
65 minutes | Jun 21, 2018
Recreation | Jaws w/ Alex Berg, Todd Fasen, Alex Fernie
Convoy and Shane attack ‘Jaws’! We sing ‘Le Freak’ a lot. *Apologies for the audio quality! It’s still funny!*
30 minutes | Jun 19, 2018
Discussion | Jaws w/ Alex Berg, Todd Fasen, Alex Fernie
It was a huge honor to have Alex Berg, Alex Fernie and Todd Fasen (UCB’s Convoy) come on the show to talk the first ever blockbuster ‘Jaws’. We talk the way story is told that other filmmakers get wrong and overall pretty much just the strengths and weaknesses of Spielberg. Don’t worry, we love him. We aren’t snooty.

The Godfather Part II w/ Joe Lennon & Kipp Lennon
A Playing Favorites Special Episode: Last year for Father’s Day, I had my Dad, Joe Lennon, and my Uncle/Godfather, Kipp Lennon, on to do ‘The Godfather’ and it was a blast. So of course this year, I had to have them back to do ‘The Godfather Part II’ to complete it (*The third Godfather does not exist and shall not be named*).
