    Atonement

    Atonement

    The classic misunderstanding trope takes a dark turn as we discuss the novel Atonement, written by Ian McEwan and adapted by Joe Wright in 2007. This story, full of rich characters and even richer performances, gives us plenty to discuss, from sexy library encounters to haircuts that haven't changed for decades.

    The Spectacular Now

    The Spectacular Now

    Have your hip flasks and 7-up on standby because this episode we're covering The Spectacular Now, written by Tim Tharp and adapted in 2013 by James Ponsoldt. We discuss cringey lunches, the pitfalls of first person narratives, and of course the spectacular (trainwreck) Sutter.

    The Notebook

    The Notebook

    Over one hundred episodes later and we're finally returning to Nicholas Sparks with his novel The Notebook and its 2004 adaptation directed by Nick Cassavetas. We have more than a few nitpicks with this novel and film, from describing nipples as "tiny rocks" to the choice to make Noah the protagonist, we're talking about it all!

    The Haunting of Hill House

    The Haunting of Hill House

    Lock your doors (not that it will help) because this episode things are are getting creepy with The Haunting of Hill House. This Netflix series, created by Mike Flanagan, shares only a ghostly resemblance to the source novel, written by Shirley Jackson, but both are full of interesting moments and chilling scenes worth discussing.

    Frankenstein

    Frankenstein

    IT'S LIVE! IT'S LIVE! Our brand new episode on Frankenstein is live! The novel, written by Mary Shelly, and film adaptation, directed by James Whale, are two very different, yet equally influential stories. We have plenty to discuss on this one, including Mary Shelly's wild life, the career of Boris Karloff, and the mysterious origin of Igor.

    Somewhere in Time

    Somewhere in Time

    This episode we discuss Somewhere in Time, directed by Jeannot Szwarc in 1980 and based on the Richard Matheson novel, Bid Time Return. This story of romance that transcends time has heavy scifi elements, porny sexy scenes, and a regular dude trying to take credit for a woman's talent. This episode also has one of our all time favorite moments ever on the podcast!

Love!

I’ve been listening to this podcast for a couple years, and to say I love it is an understatement! It’s funny, insightful, and the excitement I feel when they do an episode on a book/movie combo I love (or hate) is REAL! My faves include their Harry Potter series, the Twilight series, Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, Big Little Lies, and many more!! I recommend it to anyone who asks for podcasts to listen to!

Relaxing and Insightful

I discovered this podcast about two weeks ago. I’m steadily going through their back catalogue. They have great chemistry. Their conversations and recaps are insightful. I find myself talking back to them when I listen to them when I’m driving. It’s like having a discussion with friends. Highly recommend.

My Happy Place

This is my favorite book to movie podcast. I’ve listened to others, but these hosts have great chemistry and the best conversations that include respectful discussions on touchy topics. It’s like kicking back and listening to your friends.
