We've also got a few hot takes including what Graham is holding in his back pocket other than self tanner.

Episode 62 - Stock Watch
Today we’re trying something a little different. For a long time, we’ve been talking about the Hollywood stock we’ve bought, how it turned out, and whose future we’d invest in today. Our inescapable hubris made us believe you’d like to hear that conversation, so HERE IT IS! You’re gonna hear names like Skeet Ulrich and James Purefoy (busts), Rosario Dawson and Anna Kendrick (stocks we’ll never sell), and Anya Taylor-Joy and Jonathan Majors (blue chip, first round picks). This episode is essentially a long list (although we had hundreds more) of people we love, no matter what category they’re in. Get ready for a dose of nostalgia for those we love, sadness for those who don’t seem to be coming back, hope for the return of old favorites, and giddy optimism for the next generation. Also, you’ll get to follow the results of our futures draft!!

Episode 61 - Amadeus
"I will speak for you, father. I speak for all mediocrities in the world. I am their champion. I am the patron's saint." Join us as we discuss the pitch perfect masterpiece Amadeus. This film has everything one would want and more. We can't do the film justice but we certainly try. Listen for Jedd coming in with an extremely hot take right out of the gate and listen closely for when Cole compares himself to Elizabeth Berridge. Grab your marzipan and sit back and enjoy this fun filled episode.

“Wax on, wax off”.....We bring you the quintessential film about karate in the Valley, "The Karate Kid". This is one of our all-time favorites and we get into the entire Karate Kid universe and answer questions like “Should Aly have been with either of them?”, “Was the crane kick legal?”, “Did Mr. Miyagi secretly hate Daniel?” and so much more. Jedd gives us his thoughts on the many Karate Kid pretenders, Cole argues about how blonde hair kept William Zabka from being the biggest movie star in the world, and another installment of “The McConaughey Minute”.

I also found Cig Burns via Heaving Bosoms and I’ve had so much fun listening to Cole and Jed. I can’t wait for more episodes and I absolutely love how they fan guy. And they sound like they have so much fun together, I’d love to see them post some video clips of them because they always comment “you can’t see but…” but what?! We want to see the crazy things you’re doing. Haha
