We looked at the overcrowded world of pop culture podcasts and said, "Hey, why not us too?" Together we revisit the films that blew our minds as dumb kids and reflect on them with our mid-thirties brains. Are they as good as we remember, or were we just too young to know they were bad?

I like this podcast (but it's also my podcast)
Hi. I'm the co-host of this podcast and I thought I should endorse it as being pretty good overall. Not perfect, but then who is? I would encourage you all to listen to it, but I'm not so egotistical that I'd say there's no room for improvement. For example, none of our guests have been major celebrities yet. Also the podcast could totally benefit from "Will they or won't they?" tension, Sam and Diane-style. But despite all that, I would still appreciate you listening to it, k?
Nastolgia with a twist
I'm a fan! These guys are about my age so the movies they are talking about are movies that I saw when I was young and haven't seen since. It activates nastolgia then slaps you across the mouth with context and cynicism. Those simple things we enjoyed as kids are not so simple, not so innocent and perhaps ruined our fragile minds. With Drew and Chris we can work through the trauma and pick up some trivia along the way.
My Only Path To Freedom
I usually find nostalgia CJs grating, but these two (and their stable of excellent cohosts) won me over with their well-researched discussions and not-unmotivated tangents. Also, if the next episode doesn't get 1k downloads, Drew will not let me out of my room to pee.
