Our hosts are Kent Smith (award-winning director, writer, producer, photographer), who has worked on such tv shows and feature films as Homeland, Mr. Mercedes, Outcast, Tusk, and Max bring his technical skills to the table. Laura Truman comes to the table with her fantastic laugh on life and incredible film knowledge (Film Critic and old school film collector). Patrick G. Keenan (award-winning actor), who you might have seen in Blind Side, Homeland, Tropical Cop Tales, and Mike, is no stranger to the stage, and he brings more jokes to the already funny show. Carlisle "Squeaker" Hamrick (Audio Genius and the boy who hates everything) is maybe the smartest guy on the show, so you never know where he will bring the questions.

Our mystery guest makes up a lovely nickname to speak freely about their experiences as directors, writers, directors of photography, producers, actors from tv shows and film, production crew members, and film experts. Join us for some in-depth discussion about your favorite movies.
Another Round (Thomas Vinterberg)
There's a theory that we should be born with a small amount of alcohol in our blood, and that modest inebriation opens our minds to the world around us, diminishing our problems and increasing our creativity. Heartened by that theory, Martin and three of his friends, all weary high school teachers, embark on an experiment to maintain a constant level of intoxication throughout the workday.

The Shining (Stanley Kubrick)
The Shining is a powerful visual puzzle of unknown forces. "Kubrick is telling a story with ghosts (the two girls, the former caretaker and a bartender), but it isn't a "ghost story", because the ghosts may not be present in any sense at all except as visions experienced by Jack, Wendy, and Danny." We go inside the world of many of the different interruptions of this masterpiece film from the incredible Stanley Kubrick. Join us on our latest adventure with our host and special guest.
Hilarious and Insightful
I think Laura and Patrick are hilarious. They are two peas in a pod on this show. I notice later in the show everyone starts to cut loose, perhaps it the adult beverage taking hold!!
You don’t have to be a fan of adult beverages to enjoy this podcast! Really enjoyable if you watch the film first and then follow along with the conversation. You’ll wish you were there!
Great perspective from relevant guest speakers and I gained insight on the movie that I had overlooked or didn't pay attention for.
