    "He went searching for love... but Fate forced a DETOUR to Revelry... Violence... Mystery!"

    Writer Kenny Neibart returns to the show to untangle the complicated web that is 1945's B-movie noir Detour. We'll ask the big question: Is it obvious that the narrator is a lying murderer, or is it really, really painfully obvious that he's a lying murderer?

Niche content and great laughs!

The team behind “You’re missing out” have a great mission behind their podcast! As someone fascinated with film history and philosophy, I got so much out of my first listen with the “Shadow of a Doubt” episode with a great guest spot from my buddy, singer-songwriter and podcaster, Micah McCaw. I would totally recommend “You’re Missing Out”!

If You Feel Like You’re Missing Out...

As someone who is mostly movie illiterate, this podcast has been AMAZING. The team does a great job having a in depth and fantastic dialogue while also making the discussion approachable for people who aren’t self described “movie buffs”. I have been watching the movies along with this first season and they have brought me a lot of joy during this crazy year of 2020. If you want to know more about film but feel like totally intimidated, this is a great place to start.

Different perspectives on a definitive list

Loving the reinvention of the podcast around the Library of Congress inductees. Mike and Tom have hilarious interplay and the guests always add something special and interesting to each episode.
