Episode 109: Shrimp Cocktails

Our shallow dive into party food reaches its briny depths with this week’s discussion of the humble shrimp cocktail. Kate teaches us about Fanny Cradock and the Major. Josh ponders the theology of the Blue Oyster Cult. Join us!

Episode 107: Cocktail Wieners and “Runaway Train”

Lil Smokeys. Vienna sausages. Cocktail wieners. Call them what you like, tiny sausages are our entryway into the wide world of finger food. Kate and Josh explore the differences between canapés, hors dóeuvres and crudités before watching “Runaway Train,” the 1985 action movie that features enough scenery to sustain the appetites of both Eric Roberts and Jon Voight. Join us!

Episode 106: Mudslides and “The Believers”

The Mudslide mixes three sweet things into something impossibly sweet and yet still pretends to be a cocktail and not a dessert. After discussing the history of phone books and the gender politics of buying the wonder drug Domicil, Kate and Josh watch “The Believers,” a forgettable thriller from 1987.

Episode 105: Hangovers and Comfort Movies

Drink too much for some reason lately? Feeling down for some reason? Some reason we won’t mention? Need to take a mental health day and stay at home and watch comfort movies? For some reason? We got ya covered in this new world we’re all living in.

Episode 104: Frozen Drinks and “Cop Car”

Remember November? Remember back before things happened and we all were just relaxing out on the patio with a blender full of frozen margaritas and some teriyaki on the old hibachi? Travel back to this vintage, pre-election episode with Kate and Josh and enjoy 2015’s “Cop Car.”

Episode 103: Refrigeration and “Moonrunners”

Kate and Josh endanger their immortal souls by praising the men who flouted God’s will by creating ice from mere water. Hear the harrowing tale of America’s first battle between Frankenwater and all-natural ice. Long about the time we finish, the Hagg boys are stirring up a whole mess of trouble in 1975’s “Moonrunners,” a dry run for “The Dukes of Hazzard.” Join us!
