Episode 46: "Annihilation" w/Matt

5/7/2018
More
Matt and I go through the absolute maze that is the recent Netflix-distributed production that is "Annihilation." This confusing, weird, and beautifully shot film has a lot to go over between all of the strangeness that unfolds that it gave Matt plenty to go over as we talk our way through what exactly happened on that screen.

Episode 45: Musician & Producer Theo Möll

5/3/2018
More
This week, I play a full conversation I had with musician and producer Theo Möll. Theo is a very accomplished musician across genres and has also been on the other side of the booth in handling some aspects of music production. With such vast experience on both ends, Theo has a very strong knowledge of the music world, in both performance and the nuance of music theory. We keep it pretty tame, though, so people of all musical backgrounds should still find this to be highly accessible and fun!

The movie reviews are back! It's been a little while, but I've done some soul-searching and some movie-searching and got a chance to watch the great new movie, "The Death Of Stalin." Well worth the watch, this political comedy does a fantastic job on all fronts and is a strong combination of thoughtful and hilarious.

After a heartbreaking New York Rangers loss, I play a conversation between my good pal Dan that we recorded directly after watching the recent Netflix-distributed film "Veronica." Listen as we go horribly off-topic and loosely try to stay on course in our original conversation topic.
