This podcast was recorded during the 2023 WGA and SAG-AFTRA strikes. Without the labor of the writers and actors currently on strike, the movie being covered here wouldn’t exist.

Special guest Michael Overhulse is down for the count this week in our double review of The Last Voyage of the Demeter and Talk to Me, two horror movies that the boys claim Jon is too scared to watch. Guess they just need a thrill pill.
