Hellbent for Letterbox | Damsel (2018)

Pax and I discuss the Zellner Brothers' underseen and unexpected Damsel starring Robert Pattinson and Mia Wasikowska. As always, we discuss the whole movie and this one is especially best seen without knowing anything about it, so we highly recommend watching the film before listening to this episode.

Pax also reads Bullet Catcher by Joaquin Lowe and Shaolin Cowboy by Geof Darrow, and listens to the How the West Was 'Cast podcast. And I watch Jane Russell in Montana Belle (1952).

AfterLUNCH | Southern Road Trip

AfterLUNCH's 50th episode coincided with my road trip south to see a bunch of friends I haven't seen in a long time (and one I'd never met face-to-face before). Some of them grew up in the South, some transplanted there, and some transplanted away from there, so I talk to them about Southern living and what movies, TV shows, and books best represent it.
