#53: Birds All Day Long
June 1st, 2017 · 111 minutes
This week kicks off with some follow-up on John’s bird-enemy and why a person would ever eat popcorn with a spoon.
A (spoiler-free) check-in with The Leftovers Season 3 leads to a further discussion of trailers, recaps, and…spoilers. Your hosts address their approaches to “His ‘n Hers” media consumption, and the joys of watching closely.
The main topic this week is PIXAR. Specifically, your hosts react to a recent article on whether Disney has “ruined” PIXAR, then proceed with candid opinions on whether or how House Mouse might influence House Luxo.
