Pick Six Movies is a movie podcast where each season we select six movies, all related to a single theme. We examine the history of the people in front of and behind the camera, try to make sense of how and why the movie was made, then discuss each one in way too much detail to see if they are any good.



Pick Six Movies is hosted by Bo Ransdell and Chad Cooper, two life-long friends with a shared passion for discussing things they barely understand in an attempt to make each other laugh.

    Welcome, human listeners, to another episode of this season of Pick Six Movies. We call this one “Domo Arigato,” and it’s all about movies featuring robots.

    As part of our 26th season of Pick Six Movies, Domo Arigato, we are looking at six movies all about robots. For our second episode of this season, we are venturing into deep space with quippy robots, unclear protagonists, and a crazy German intent on defying the very laws of science and good movie-making. That’s right, it’s Walt Disney’s first foray into PG filmmaking, The Black Hole!

    S26:E01: Heartbeeps

    It’s a new season of Pick Six Movies, and we are getting cozy with our future robot overlords. We’re looking at six movies all about robots and what better place to start than with a movie that almost no one has seen, 1981’s Heartbeeps! How could a movie starring Andy Kaufman and Bernadette Peters with music by John Williams be this big a stinker? Is Andy Kaufman-bot ready to be a father? And is the movie really just wandering in the woods? These questions and more answered on a new episode!







    00:00:00 – 00:01:14 – Welcome to the Show with Bo







    00:01:15 – 00:33:14 – Andy Kaufman and the Story of Heartbeeps with Chad







    00:33:15 – End – Discussing Heartbeeps with the Boys

Another winner for us. Not so much for them.

Great show where they do six pack seasons of sub-genres of films. Are they good films sometimes. Not really but Bo and Chad throw some worthy knowledge to everything they do weather it’s a high class her film or even a Lifetime movie. Good stuff!

Where have you been all my life?

These guys are great! Not only will they keep you rolling with all the jokes. They seriously know their stuff and give you tons of knowledge in every episode. If you want to have a blast look no further. One of the best podcasts out there bar none!
