tigerrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr ,

Dreading the day I run out of backlogged content

My Dooood ,

Pretty bad

I’d love to like it and I listen fairly often (I’m starved for film talk, what can I say?), but it’s not very good at all. Some truly abysmal takes. Don’t listen to the episode on The Mule unless you have a baby’s brain.

The Mule

I appreciate the interpretation of the film in the context of being liberal. Couldn’t stant the girl guest hysterically laughing throughout the show! She just took all the attention. Unfortunately.
