A daily podcast where Ryan Simmons (UCB Theatre, SB Nation) watches exactly one minute of the 3-and-a-half hour 2019 movie The Irishman and then talks about it for a few minutes, and I honestly could not tell you why. New episodes Monday-Friday. Theme song: The Irish Washerwoman by Ron McKinnon (via Creative Commons: https://soundcloud.com/ron-mckinnon/irish-washerwoman)

The final episode of our live batch! Boy this was fun. I think maybe we'll do this again on or around Thursday, recording the next week's batch of Mins together. Check out twitch.tv/ryansimmonsnyc for more info! Hope to see you there!
i have not nor do i ever intend to watch The Irishman (2019)
but i tuned into this podcast to listen to patrick gill probably do some goofs with that guy who does those weird rules videos, and now i'm hooked. it's an absolute delight & the perfect way to spend the 10 minutes or so every day between showering & leaving the house? that's maybe more detailed information than necessary but i feel like you're obliged to come up with some answer to the question "why the h*ck are you listening to this ridiculously-premised podcast"
Somehow the torture Ryan puts himself through is personally soothing to me. Love. Such a brilliant yet very very dumb concept that it’s impossible not to love the gimmick of it all, and he keeps it interesting with his banter—sometimes directed at his guests, other times just at himself. Thanks to Ryan for doing this; it’s a nice reprieve in this world that is a bit too serious lately.
I'm enjoying listening to this man suffer for his art. Whoever came up with the name is a comedic genius.
