Join hosts Matt, Tiny, and Mike as they talk about their love of movies and television. Each episode covers a specific topic (be it genre, trope, movie or show) and then ends with a "Potpourri" section where the hosts discuss what they've been watching lately or are looking forward to watching in the future.
Past topics include Nickelodeon in the 90s, Notable Movie Theater Experiences, TV One Season Wonders, TV Dads, War Movies, Car Movies, and Teen Coming of Age Movies. The hosts also do occasional retrospective episodes that have covered the entire Marvel Cinematic Universe, the career of Adam Sandler, and the entire Halloween film franchise, to name a few.
The podcast also features occasional interview episodes and live recorded episodes from Indianapolis conventions like Indy PopCon, and Starbase Indy. The podcast also hosts a live event every October in Indianapolis celebrating the horror genre and local filmmakers called Shocktober in Irvington.
