    The Finale - Birdemic, Troll 2, and The Room

    The Finale - Birdemic, Troll 2, and The Room

    This is it, y'all. The last main-feed Horsecast episode. 
    We reflect on how we got here by starting at our roots: The unholy trinity of Birdemic, Troll 2, and The Room.

    As a final note, for anyone who may read these descriptions, thank you all so much for some four years of Horsecast. This has been a wonderfully fun project for the both of us, and we really hope y'all enjoyed it as much as we did.
    Thank you.

    Star Wars Episode III: Revenge of the Sith - Brain RotS

    Star Wars Episode III: Revenge of the Sith - Brain RotS

    It's abbreviated RotS because it gives us the brain rots.
    Delia returns as we talk Revenge of the Sith and dig into what exactly is wrong with us and why we all have a different, equally dumb, favorite prequel.

More fun than the name implies!

unique and irreverant take on movies, new and old. Much more fun and insightful than the tagline might imply. Digs in to cast, themes, cinematogrophy, and, most basic of basic, was the movie any good.
Give 'em a listen!

Playful and insightful analyses of pop culture.

The co-hosts of Beating a Dead Horse explore pop culture, art, and themes of death in frequent clever epsiodes. The co-hosts have a delightful chemistry, invite guest speakers, and engage in shenanigans all while keeping their listeners updated on pop culture and engaged in critical discourse.

Highly recommend!

The death-centric structure yields insightful discussions about each death's impact on character development and motivation, tone, and audience satisfaction in various pieces of pop culture. It also leads to fascinating exploration of hypothetical plot changes based on altering who dies in a story. Smart and interesting conversation between hosts who are well-informed and passionate about the media they consume.
