I Love Da Moviesh

If you love movies, this is required listening.

Griffin and David basically present a free biography on interesting filmmakers, then apply auteur theory to their work. While that sounds insanely dull, it’s chock full of chemistry between #thetwofriends and bits. They go deep, but always takes the listener with them.

If you’re looking to start anywhere, start at minute 45 of the Billy Lynn’s Long Halftime Walk. Everything after this point is a distillation of the entire pod.

One of the best movie pods

Not only are they funny, but their reviews are insightful and very well critiqued. Their banter is charming, the chemistry is natural, and their conversations are inviting.
