Three hosts take a look at the cult media that has enraptured audiences, whether it be film, television, video games, or beyond.
Episode 43- Blackadder (1983-1989)
It's been entirely too long since we've been able to regale you with a tale of any true consequence. But don't worry- we have a cunning plan to tell you all about one of the United Kingdom's top sitcoms of all time. It may just take a few generations for the full effect to kick in.
Episode 42- Henry Darger (1908-1971)
Deep in the heart of the Windy City, one of the most surprisingly prolific authors and illustrators of all time amassed his work in secret. It may not be the best way to get established in the arts, but it's a hell of a topic for conversation.
Episode 41- Reefer Madness (1936)
Listeners, it has recently come to our attention that some of you may have recently been partaking in certain substances that have been tied to nothing more than violence, corruption, and debauchery. And while violence, corruption, and debauchery are some of the many things we specialize in, we here at It's Symbolic cannot stand idly by while good citizens fall by the wayside. Sit down as we tell you this absolutely true tale of things that definitely happened, and maybe you'll think twice before throwing your life away like that.
Episode 40- Con Air (1997)
Buckle up, prepare for takeoff, and please no smoking, because we've got a collection of It's Symbolic favorites in the manliest work we've ever covered. We've got the only weapons on board, and by god if any of you starts an uprising we're taking the whole plane down with us. You'll find a complimentary bunny in your backseat pocket.
Episode 39- Police Squad! (1982)
Tonight's episode: The Wrong Title. Our name is It's Symbolic, a special detail of the podcasting world. We were across town when we learned we were supposed to be recording the 1982 parody police procedural, Police Squad! Our boss was already on the scene.
Episode 38- Polybius (1981)
Warning: prolonged exposure to Polybius can cause headaches, blurry vision, loss of memory, insomnia, small fires, night terrors, and questioning the validity of one's perception of reality. We managed to take the whole brunt of it, but using the proper safety precautions is advised.
