Ep. 38: Pufferfish, pufferfish, pass

Click here to listen everywhere!

We’re in the mood to fight each other this week, whether over the Hellboy remake or rehashing one of our earlier debates about addiction. We know each other better now, so the gloves are off. In this whirlwind episode, topics span from a cursed lake and America’s civil war, to the trouble with Zack Snyder, to whether an affinity for getting high is a mammalian impulse — and if so, what that means.

Highlights:

[0:00] CoRri tells Mark about America’s most cursed lake and fields a surprising question about state’s rights.

[24:23] We discuss what might be JoAG’s legacy in the annals of time

[29:30] We recap our Discord watch-along of Thirteen Ghosts, the film’s awards showings, and Mark’s desire for his own theme song

[37:30] We rehash the other things we’ve watched this week, talk about why Dave Bautista is weirdly adorable, and compare the pitfalls of Zack Snyder and Christopher Nolan films

[53:00] We fanboy/fangirl out about Robert Englund and his upcoming role in Stranger Things

[58:00] An hour into the ‘cast, we consider just NOT talking about the thing we were gonna talk about, but then power through to discuss whether animals’ penchant for getting high reflects some greater mammalian tendency toward drug use. This leads. to us revisiting a discussion we had in a previous episode about addiction, but MUCH more aggressively because we know each other well enough to bicker now
