A podcast about talking to people about things; how original! Honestly, I just love hearing people tell stories & having a chance to learn about new stuff. So whether it's about video games, art theory, childcare, food, LGBTQ+ experiences, D&D, or something else, we'll have something to say about it. And hopefully you'll want to listen! Due to all of the above and our desire to talk about our passions: this podcast is NSFW, assuming that's a consideration from you. We're not gratuitous, but we're gonna swear, make jokes, and talk about stuff like adults (or at least grown-up kids)

Joel Taras is back for more in-depth movie analysis! Today's subject of discussion: Roadhouse (1989) is a movie about cuckolding. Specifically we break down how explicit this film is in its deconstruction & reassessment of masculinity, sexual fidelity, and the fame of local bartenders. This movie legitimately tackles these issues with some deftness, while also being a ridiculous 80's action movie - it's spectacular.
