Sandy Jones! ,

The only podcast I re-listen to episodes of

I love these guys and their takes are always really interesting to listen to and have taught me a lot about philosophy and critical thinking in a very entertaining way. The only podcast I’ll go back to and re-listen months later to try and get more out of it, almost like the movies themselves!

80'sVillager ,

Keri

A Brian Di Palma film “Keri” starring Jared Bauer, Keri Smith & Jordan Peterson. A strange young woman’s lurch to the Alt Right culminates in 2 bizarre podcasts with media mogul hiding in Finland.
