It's a podcast about watching westerns with your dad. Or in this case, my dad. From John Wayne to Clint Eastwood to Sergio Corbucci to Bud Boetticher, we'll watch and discuss as many as we can, looking at the films, the genre, and our relationship to them (and each other, a little bit).

    Thank You All, this is our Farewell Episode

    Thank You All, this is our Farewell Episode

    I’ll just say it outright: After a two year battle with pancreatic cancer, my father has passed away. I don’t know what words can do it justice, but here’s quite a few anyway. I’ve recorded a final episode, the bulk of which is a conversation with my immediate family about my father’s legacy, and a … Continue reading Thank You All, this is our Farewell Episode

    GODLESS!

    GODLESS!

    On this episode, we’ll be discussing the new limited series on Netflix, Scott Frank’s Godless!

    BUTCH CASSIDY AND THE SUNDANCE KID!

    Finally, an episode we’ve been looking towards since the start, one of the most beloved American Westerns and a film listed on the AFI’s list of Hundred Best Films: 1969’s Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid, featuring the classic pairing of Paul Newman and Robert Redford in the titular roles. An affable, seriocomic romp through … Continue reading BUTCH CASSIDY AND THE SUNDANCE KID!

    EBENEZER!

    Merry Christmas, everyone! On this special holiday episode of Westerns With Dad, we’re discussing the little-seen 1997 Canadian TV production, Ebenezer! Starring noted Western stars Jack Palance and Ricky Schroeder, it’s an adaptation of Charles Dickens’ oft-adapted classic, A Christmas Carol, reset in the Old West. Utterly inessential, clearly not intended for posterity, and fairly … Continue reading EBENEZER!

    TRUE GRIT 1969 & 2010!!

    On this belated episode, we are talking about both versions of the Charlie Portis novel True Grit! The original, from 1969, is famously the film that won John Wayne his Oscar, and the 2010 remake from the Coen Brothers! Both are great, as it turns out, and surprisingly similar in a number of ways (largely … Continue reading TRUE GRIT 1969 & 2010!!

    DEAD MAN!

    DEAD MAN!

    Jim Jarmusch’s utterly bizarre 1995 ‘Acid Western’ Dead Man is the subject of this episode, featuring Johnny Depp at his height as a tenderfoot traveling into the Frontier and also, potentially, the reincarnation of the poet William Blake. Shot in B&W and featuring a unique Neil Young soundtrack, Dead Man defies easy description and is … Continue reading DEAD MAN!
