A system of podcasts where I get together with a number of friends and more to talk about a number of topics that usually revolve around the one thing I care about most; cinema.

With Steve Killius (We Hope Gwyneth Is Listening), we have in-depth topics around movies, as well as television, comic books, pop culture and more, while actually addressing just one person in Gwyneth Paltrow.

With James Fichera (The Awkward Goodbye), we literally pull actors' names out of a hat and discuss anything and everything about them and their careers, along with all sorts of films, the culture them and more.

    The Awkward Goodbye: Actor In a Hat with Jessica Chastain

    The Awkward Goodbye: Actor In a Hat with Jessica Chastain

    The latest episode of The Awkward Goodbye takes us all-around to Sacramento, Chicago, the South, the Middle East, Washington, D.C., the gothic romantic realm and possible Heaven/Bardo.... with another edition of the Actor In a Hat! With James, we pull out the two-time Oscar nominee Jessica Chastain and go through her career with started off with a bang at the beginning in the decade, to The Tree of Life and, um well, is where it's at now with the X-Men franchise. Tough.

    But we love Chastain in general! And the digressions here are hard and fast in this one, as we go touch on everything from the latest Spider-Man: Far From Home (or Far From Good as James refers to it as), the lackluster year overall in cinema so far, some films we've caught up on lately, and then a really, REALLY nerdy debate on Captain America as the God of Thunder in Avengers: Endgame. You're not prepared for how nerdy it is; so give it a listen and check out one of the most dynamic actors working today!

    The Awkward Goodbye: Actor In a Hat with Matt Damon and Brie Larson

    The Awkward Goodbye: Actor In a Hat with Matt Damon and Brie Larson

    It's another episode of The Awkward Goodbye podcast, with myself and James, where we have our usual staple in "Actor In a Hat"; taking a literal hat, putting actors names in said hat, pulling said names out of aforementioned hat and discussing them as much as we can.

    This go-round, we have two Oscar-winners in Matt Damon and Brie Larson and admittedly, James and I recorded this one a while ago so I'll touch up on some notes below:

    - Colin Firth, not Colin Farrell, starred in Gambit, that was written by the Coen Brothers.

    - I finally saw Jason Bourne since we recorded this, it's not bad! Same with Contagion, it's not bad!

    - one of James' cats sits on my phone while recording this, great producing work here (srsly).

    - the leads for Sean Baker's Tangerine are Kitana Kiki Rodriguez and Mya Taylor (shouts to James Ransone as well).

    - I was badly thinking of Joe Swanberg being the director of Greenberg, instead of Noah Baumbach.

    - there's an outdated breakdown of Bohemian Rhapsody in here, just before we got into the thick of awards season last year. Needless to say, Rami Malek did end up winning Best Actor and the film won 4 out of the 5 Oscars it was nominated for. The less said about this, the better probably.

    - Amy Adams was eventually nominated for Vice in Best Supporting Actress.



    Give it a listen, and hopefully we'll have another episode up in a more timely matter for you all!

    We Hope Gwyneth Is Listening (Episode 6): "Brie Larson Hair Corner" - The Avengers Endgame Edition

    We Hope Gwyneth Is Listening (Episode 6): "Brie Larson Hair Corner" - The Avengers Endgame Edition

    Coming directly and immediately out of the biggest movie of the year - and possibly of the whole decade at the end - Steve and I discuss everything about the film in-depth through three facets; as a massive pop-culture artifact, as an actual movie and everything encompassing the plot, spoilers, what could possibly be next with the MCU, and much more.  What we liked, what we didn't like, swan songs for a number of the characters and actors, what could be in the next chapter for those remaining, what makes this movie so unique compared to and in regards to the previous 21 movies in the MCU canon - how do we get the all-female A-Force from here? - as usual, we go deep and within a lot of tangents in this one.
