This week’s Off the Clock covers A.Ron’s rewatch of Avengers: Infinity War, as well as Netflix’s “The Trial of the Chicago 7” and Blake Crouch’s sci-fi book “Recursion.”
In this week’s episode of Fargo, the drug war is heating up… wait, I think I’ve said that before. In fact, it’s been heating up for at least half the season now. And while things have certainly progressed, with bodies in the streets and gang shootings in the papers, the ambition of this season’s storytelling make it somehow feel like the war is still simmering away on the back burner with just a single episode left. Join us for the podcast to get our full episode breakdown.
Oh, you were expecting Ahsoka to show up the episode after she’s name-dropped? That’s just too bad. We’ve still got secondary characters to service! Like Cara. What’s she been up to since Mando left? And Greefe? He definitely needs some screentime. Not to mention Boba Fett was shown two full episodes before Ahsoka’s name even hit a character’s lips. No friend, we’ve got a LONG way to go before the Ahsoka episode. In the meantime, we do get some solid action and speculation-fodder for Moff Gideon’s plans if he ever gets his hands on Baby Yoda.
This week we talk about the new cat terrorizing the Jones household, A.Ron’s teacher shortage, the destruction of Arecibo Observatory from GoldenEye and Contact, A.Ron’s woodworking / Christmas village, Thanksgiving meal plans, the strangeness of The Queen’s Gambit and more!

What comes to mind when you think of the movie “Labyrinth”? If you were a young girl coming of age in the mid 80s, you probably remember the raw emo sexuality of David Bowie awakening something within you or the hero’s journey told from the female perspective. If you’re Jim you remember a ton of early internet memes centered on David Bowie’s bulge that eventually lead you to watching this bizarrely creative Jim Henson masterpiece. Either way, there’s something for everyone to love in this movie, and hopefully in the podcast we produced for Kevin and Courtney’s commission.
Have you seen The Wizard of Oz? If so, you’ve already seen this episode of Fargo, or some dream-like version of it anyway. Join us for our discussion of the plot and thematic similarities between The Wizard of Oz and East / West, the future of Satchel and Rabbi, and all things Cohen as we go into the final two episodes of the season.
This week’s episode is on the shorter side and, while it’s not as entertaining as the previous two episodes of the season, pushes the plot forward with the discovery of a few new Mandalorians, as well as a big reveal about Mandalorian sub-cultures that kinda blew our minds. Join us on the podcast for the full discussion.
This week we talk trash about the Jones household potentially getting a cat as well as literal trash and recycling. We also tell the tale of our friend named “Burns” getting blown up and round everything out with an impromptu Bald Move podcast bracket to determine which is our all-time best show.
Club members get access to a live recording of Lunch with Jim & A.Ron every Friday at 1pm, where members get to ask questions in real time. On the fifth anniversary of Lunch with Jim & A.Ron, we started reheating previous lunch episodes and making them available to the public for the first time.
This might be the last time they let street guys like us handle any podcasts this valuable. We’ve had a good run of Scorsese films this year (Goodfellas, The Irishman, The Wolf of Wall Street) but there’s only so much gas is in the Scorsese tank. We canceled our Raging Bull 40th anniversary podcast because we just couldn’t fit it in. Jim’s pumping the breaks on reviewing any more gangster films in the near future. Are we running out of steam? Getting sloppy? I sure hope not because that’s when you make mistakes. That’s when you get whacked.
Join us for a little over an hour of discussion of Scorsese’s 1995 classic Las Vegas gangster film, Casino.
