    104: Tiger King XXL

    104: Tiger King XXL

    Greetings fellow homebodies! This week Tess, Molly and Emily spend some time delving into our nightmarish techno-feudalist world. Where are the billionaires now? How do you shop for food ethically right now when the options are all bad? How are we, if not keeping sane exactly, at least muddling through? Some of us enjoyed watching Netflix's Tiger King, and some of us did not. A fun back and forth about ethics in documentary filmmaking, private zoos, and whether Joe Exotic is a Tony Soprano for our times. Then it's the conclusion of Spring Break March and the weirdest spring break in history with Magic Mike XXL, the Gregory Jacobs directed sequel to Steven Soderbergh's Magic Mike. Male objectification, Channing Tatum's career, Joe Manganiello's Backstreet Boys number, and how these movies quietly and expertly reinvented the movie musical for a new era without being annoying or twee about it. Escape on a mind vacation with Night Call, today!

    BONUS EPISODE: Night Call Movie Club with Rian Johnson

    We are celebrating our inaugural episode of the Night Call Movie Club by putting it on the main feed! New episodes will come out every month for $5+ Patreon subscribers, along with our Book Club and other bonus episodes. Join us now at patreon.com/NightCall!
    To kick things off, we're watching the 1997 Robert Zemeckis-directed adaptation of Contact (after our 5-star experience with Carl Sagan's 1985 novel on the Book Club.) And who better to help us do it than writer, director and friend of the pod, Rian Johnson! We chat about how the movie has aged since its release, differences between the novel and the film, the filmography of Robert "Bobby Z" Zemeckis, sourdough starters, user interfaces of '90s Hollywood, loudmouths in Hawaiian shirts, and so much more.

    Introducing The Women's War, a Brand New iHeartRadio Original Podcast

    Introducing The Women's War, a Brand New iHeartRadio Original Podcast

    Hi listeners - today we wanted to give you a preview of the newest project from Robert Evans (host of Behind the Bastards and It Could Happen Here and co-host of Worst Year Ever). It's called The Women's War, and you can listen to episode 1 now over in that feed here. And don't forget to subscribe in the new feed so you never miss an episode!
    These are...not optimistic times for most Americans. Across the world, the dangers of climate change and the terror of creeping authoritarianism present an increasing danger to all of us. After covering this degeneration for four years, Robert Evans went looking for hope. He found it in the unlikeliest of places: Northeast Syria, in a region known as Rojava that’s become host to a feminist, anti-authoritarian revolution. 
    When you’ve heard about these folks in the mainstream media, they’re usually just described as the “Syrian Kurds”, and credited with beating ISIS. They did, in fact, beat ISIS. But their military successes were just part of the story. In The Women’s War, Robert will introduce listeners to dozens of men and women fighting a war for the future of the human soul.

    103: Werner Herzog’s The Real Cancun

    103: Werner Herzog’s The Real Cancun

    A night caller asks and we deliver on covering the spring breakers and Disneyworld trippers who just wouldn’t stay home, as well as the too late response from Florida to prevent party rocking. Then a very special guest presents Dispatch From A Kid - Tess’s son Emmett! Emmett joins to tell us how kids feel about Corona and being off from school. More virus talk from the ladies leads into our penultimate week of Spring Break March, with The Real Cancun! The most 2003 movie of all time beloved by Werner Herzog, we look at why it failed where the Jersey Shore would succeed not too long after. Is any movie about thousands of people touching skin now a horror movie? Mayhaps! Molly tries to sell Tess and Emily on Summer House again and Emily counters with Terrace House. Come to Club Coco Bongo, with Night Call!
