A movie and comedy podcast where a husband and wife show each other movies that the other one really should have seen by now!
"You Can Always Depend on the Old Spy-F****r"
This week, it's Tracy's first time to see 1975's "Three Days of the Condor," a fantastic spy thriller starring Robert Redford's chest hair. We talk about unsexy sex scenes, what makes for a good espionage story, and why Sydney Pollack was the best. Turn on your '70s computer and try to listen now! (Seriously, does it HAVE to be so loud?)
"The Only Thing That Matters Is What They Feel"
This week, it's Daniel's first time to see 1967's "Guess Who's Coming to Dinner," a landmark movie of the Civil Rights era that, distressingly, still has plenty of relevance today. We talk about what's aged well vs. what hasn't, why progressive movies are always behind the times, and why we're starting an all-new show called the Sidney Poitcast. Pour the monsignor a scotch and listen now!
"It's Not Strictly Legal"
This week, it's Tracy's first time to see 1985's "Blood Simple," the first movie by the Coen brothers. It's a tense thriller set in small-town Texas that still holds up 35 years later. We talk about why Frances McDormand is a national treasure, how to pronounce "Dan Hedaya," and how Bruce Campbell is secretly the reason this movie got made. Book a flight to Uruguay and listen now!
"You're Not Splotchy."
This week, it's Daniel's first time to see 2000's "Center Stage," a movie about hot young ballet dancers that is a holy talisman for many women of a certain generation. We talk about how the filmmakers used real dancers to make everything authentic, how Zoe Saldana got her first break with this movie, and yes, the glory that is Cooper Nielson. Dance the sh*t out of it and listen now!
"I Don't Wear the Dress"
This week, it's Tracy's first time to see 2012's "Haywire," a great action movie starring Gina Carano as a badass field operative and an A-list roster of dudes as the bad guys dumb enough to get in her way. We talk about what makes the action so great, why director Steven Soderbergh didn't want to do the movie without Carano, and, of course, why Michael Fassbender is so hot. Get the hell out of Barcelona and listen now!
"Valley Girl: It's a Real Movie"
This week, it's Daniel's first time to see 1983's "Valley Girl," which is a totally tubular movie unless you're like *such* a total pukoid. We talk killer 1980s soundtracks, why Nicolas Cage is so hairy, and how what started as an exploitation movie for dirty old men was rewritten in production to become a teen dramedy classic by pioneering director Martha Coolidge. Book a room at the Valley Sheraton and listen now!

A Pod Challenge Worth Doing
Okay, this may be biased review since I know Daniel and Tracy, but the concept for their podcast is novel and why it works so well. They take turns showing each other a movie the other should have really seen by now and talk at length about it while citing articles pertaining about the production and its history.
And then I come along with my own thoughts and feedback and post to my Facebook feed, but now I'm starting to include them on Letterboxd where they can be liked and shared.
Maybe I should become a Patreon and suggest a movie that neither of them have seen. Then I'll be like, "Daniel, Tracy, HOW HAVE YOU NOT SEEN THIS?!"
So Much Fun!
I adore listening to these two! Honestly I want to be Tracy’s best friend. Their conversations remind me so much of the conversations I have with my husband. Honestly every time Tracy speaks I’m like “That’s me.” Keep up the good work.
Also I think your producer needs a raise. ;-)
Listening in on a funny couple discuss the movies they love.
5 stars! I love listening to the Carlsons talk about their favorite movies, deep-dive into details of the movies, veer off onto (mostly) related tangents, and complain about their producer, their dog.
