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.
