Michael Rader and Ryan Lynch spend an entire year trying to guess what happens in a movie neither of them knows anything about. Perhaps with the help of some special guests, they can figure out the entire plot of the movie before the year is up or else suffer the consequences of being wrong on the Internet. But that's okay: If at first they don't succeed, they'll get it right next year.

Why are you reading this when you could be listening to the show?
An absolute delight. Or is it? Or is it?
Yes. Yes it is.
Michael and Ryan spend a year discussing what they think will be the plot of a movie that they only know the title of, getting scant and mixed information from a plethora of interesting guests, and are supported by the delightful Helen (of Falling In Love Montage podcast). It's funny and clever.
Don't try jumping in at the middle of a season. Start at the beginning of whatever season you fancy and listen all the way through. It'll be worth the ride.
