Human memory is flawed and we're here to prove it. On Totes Recall, our hosts Molly Chase, Beth Gibbs, Dan Jaquette and Dan Linden discuss the intricate details of a popular film. The catch? It's been years since they've watched it. Listen as they attempt to recap the plot, pull the names of secondary characters, and make bets whether a vat of acid appears at any point in the film. At halftime, they press the pause button, watch the film and return with answers. Did they nail it? Or, more likely, did they forget the entire second half of the movie? Listen and play along. Make new memories while realizing all of your old ones are full of lies.

Totes Love Actually
I’ve known about Totes Recall for years but only started listening a few months ago and I’m so grateful I did. It is bar none one of my favorite podcasts. The team has unbelievable chemistry and comedic timing. I hate that there’s only one episode a month but I also get giddy with anticipation waiting for what the next movie will be. Whether you’ve seen the movies or not, it doesn’t matter. The group’s commentary and insight is likely far more entertaining. Do yourself a favor and subscribe to the podcast immediately. And the newsletter. And go to Terrible Origami (home of the million dollar frog). Maybe order some pizza while you’re at it.
Love You Guys!!!
Molly, Beth, Dan and Dan,
Thank you so much for such a great podcast! I love movies and your show is a bright spot in my week! It's hilarious from start to finish. I look forward to each episode! If I'm ever in the twin cities, I'd love to meet you guys for coffee or drinks and talk movies! My treat! Keep the episodes coming!
I know Dan from High School. He is cool. I don't know the other Dan, but he seems cool too. Molly and Beth also seem cool. I only mention them second because I know one Dan and had to explain the lack of relationship to the other, and the linear nature of our language prevented me from mentioning all as first.
Someone should give the podcast money so they can buy more salad.
Jersey Dracula should get more airtime and should speak to other named Draculas about non-relationship issues.
This is the greatest podcast ever that has a borderline title copyright infringement for a movie starring a former Governor in a movie they did before they were Governor.
Keep up the awesomeness!!!
