#016 The Greatest Showman [with Veep writer Emilia Barrosse]



This week we welcome comedian and Veep writer, Emilia Barrosse, who introduces us to The Greatest Showman! In fact, there’s so much to say about it that we don’t even play a game, we’re just that excited (and high) to review. We let you listeners, and 20th Century Fox, know what we think about the story execution, Hugh Jackman and Michelle Williams‘ character arcs and the “meteoric” phenomenon that is this soundtrack. If you’ve seen this movie then you can sing along as we take you through the greatest hits… from Florida Georgia Line. Oh, Damn! You’re not going to want to miss this episode packed with snapping, swaying, comedy, drama and most importantly, marijuana!

#014 Spiderman: Into the Spider-Verse



This week, we’re crawling with excitement for our review of Marvel’s Spider-Man: Into the Spide-Verse! But first, we discuss the merits of our own Spidey Sense as Chris regales us with what he has learned from the first two chapters of The Untethered Soul. This episode we bring back everyone’s favorite game, Google Ganja which brings up all sorts of hot topics from zodiac signs, to the movie Babe (our favorite reference) and Sigmund & Freud… or is it Sigmund & Roy, or maybe, Siegfried & Roy?

Of course, we talk about the movie we’re here to talk about. But we also unpack how everyone feels about other animated favorites like Up, Toy Story, The Polar Express and Gollum from LOTR baby. By the end of this episode, I think we’ll have you convinced that you should get blazed and go see this movie while it’s still in theaters!
