We embark on a journey through the Harry Potter film series which Maggie grew up with but Matt has never seen (nor has he read the books).
Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone

We’re not quite ready for our 50th episode. Instead, we bring you a short bonus episode from the distant past. This was our audio test just before we recorded episode 1 of the podcast way back in December 2016 – we were all so much younger then! It’s basically just a condensed version of what we normally do just with even less direction.
Our favorite movies series continues with Matt’s favorite film: The Prestige.

It’s another one of them Marvel movies and this time they even put the company name in the title. That’s brand synergy.

Jackson, Ben Mendelsohn, Djimon Hounsou, Lee Pace, Lashana Lynch, Gemma Chan, Annette Bening, Clark Gregg, Jude Law Production Company: Marvel Studios Distributed by: Walt Disney Studios Motion Pictures
We’re starting a sub-series where we cover our favorite movies. Technically we already began this with The LEGO Movie episode (one of Matt’s favorites). Now join us for a discussion of Maggie’s favorite film: the 1994 classic Forrest Gump – which Matt had never seen before!
Directed by: Robert Zemeckis Produced by: Wendy Finerman, Steve Tisch, Steve Starkey Written by: Eric Roth Based on:Forrest Gump by Winston Groom Edited by: Arthur Schmidt Music by: Alan Silvestri Starring: Tom Hanks, Robin Wright, Gary Sinise, Mykelti Williamson, Sally Field Production Company: Wendy Finerman Productions Distributed by: Paramount Pictures
It’s our loudest longest episode ever! That doesn’t mean it’s good. But you should still listen as we discuss our personal musical evolutions. Includes rabbit trails on boy bands, CCM, pop punk, and Coldplay. And also find out what embarrassing (his word) album was Eric’s first.
Like the previous episode, we had to record this in separate studios and the audio quality suffered a bit more this time than last time. Hopefully we will be in the same place next time.
A factual correction nobody cares about: Matt stated he graduated high school in 2009. In fact it was 2008 and he is older than he thinks and/or wants.
