We discuss mating frogs, computer builds, racing-mania, sitcoms, our scariest, most painful motor vehicle experiences, and more. Apologies for the sub-par audio. We both forgot to record on our respective ends this week! PREEEEEE…. you know.
Today we’re talking 1961’s The Hustler, which might just be the greatest movie about the game of pool that has ever been made. Starring Paul Newman, Piper Laurie, and George C. Scott, it’s a tale of an up-and-coming pool hustler trying to make it big but, more importantly, it’s the story of a man trying to figure out what makes a person a “winner”.
This week we talk about putting eyes on Neowise, how to get through preaching door-to-door, downloading knowledge matrix-style, weird bucket list items, the best credits sequences on TV, the Lovecraft Country trailer, and more.
The Hunt for Red October is a classic naval thriller starring Sean Connery and Alec Baldwin in the lead roles. As a big Tom Clancy fan, it’s also one of A.Ron’s favorite films. Does it hold up 30 years later? Join us on the podcast to find out.

A big thank you to Ann Merin for commissioning this podcast on Chaos on the Bridge, William Shatner’s 2014 documentary that peeks behind the scenes of the first few years of Star Trek: The Next Generation with cast interviews describing tumultuous power dynamics both in and out of the writers room. Frankly, it’s a must-see movie for fans of TNG and now we’ve finally seen it. Give the podcast a listen to find out what we thought.
This week we talk about a death in the Bald Move family, Grant Imahara’s passing, the fastest we’ve ever driven, our Covid-era sleep schedules, laser-engraved turkeys and attempt to envision season 12 of Breaking Bad with Scott Gimple at the helm.
Jim is mixing up Bloody Marys for a series of summer lunches which eventually becomes “On the Rocks” while we debate this year’s Emmy nominations.
This week we examine Kevin Costner’s 100% efficient digestive tract, online schooling, conspiracy theories we flirted with, what we think about the name “Bald Move” 10 years in, and a ton of other listener questions.
We seem to be on a Vietnam kick with a couple of our movie choices lately. Oliver Stone’s 1989 adaptation of Vietnam veteran Ron Kovic’s autobiography of the same name, recounting his journey from a combat-thirsty young man to a disabled anti-war activist, is worthy of the two academy awards it won. Join us for a discussion about the film, this American folly, and its lingering effects on our society today.
