For the first time since The Young Pope, Jim and Cecily come together to record a podcast, this time on season 2 of Netflix’s Ozark. We talk about the many things we liked and the few things we didn’t. We also christen the deadliest road in all of the Ozarks, squeeze a baby for all of its juice, and find out just how much Cecily knows about poison.
A.Ron and Cecily begin a tradition of discussing the scary movies they’ve been watching throughout the Halloween season! No spoilers to scare any body off, we just talk about just how and what type of scary they are. This year’s crop of fresh indie horrors is courtesy Kimberly Dadds Buzzfeed article on 31 scary movies to watch during the month of October. The list is below, and I’ve linked to Jim and A.Ron’s in depth review of Pontypool.

Jim, A.Ron and Cecily talk about the perplexing third episode of HBO’s The Young Pope. Does anyone around here believe in God? Does anyone not? Is God real? How heavy is his weight? Is the kangaroo God? Your guess is as good as ours, and thankfully the show is gorgeous and intriguing enough to keep us watching even when we have no idea what’s going on.
A.Ron and Cecily discuss yet another music episode of American Horror Story: Freakshow. Topics covered include the mating habits of conjoined twins, Russell Edgington’s Celtic Sword, Dora’s standoff with Dandy, and living in a Freakshow Paradise.
Hello and welcome for another round of gab about Netflix’s Orange is the New Black, this time covering episode 207, “Comic Sans”. Cecily once again joins me as we discuss Black Cindy’s origin story, the tragedy of the American prison system, and just lots of other social ills. It’s kind of depressing, but we try…
